Dynamic teams capitalize on the diverse talents of all team members. They have a motivating vision, meet challenges together, and continuously improve work performance. Working as a member of an effective team is energizing, fulfilling and rewarding.

Using our Team Diagnostic Survey, we assess the strengths and weaknesses of the team, and with those results in hand, team members can take focused action to build on their strengths and overcome areas of weaknesses.

Goal Clarity: Effective Teams have clearly defined Goals (team and individual), and the focus, intention and commitment of each individual is on delivering the team’s results.

Role Clarity: Effective Teams have clearly defined Roles that they are committed to. Team members know their own and each other’s roles, deliverables and accountabilities. They hold one another accountable for delivering results, as well as their behaviours and attitudes.

Process Effectiveness: Effective Teams have effective processes in place for functions such as conflict resolution, decision making and communication. The team embraces conflict (versus artificial harmony). The team has the skills, tools and processes needed to make decisions.
Effective Relationships: Effective Teams have effective working relationships which includes the following critical, non negotiable ingredients: Complete trust in one another, openness, directness/forthright; skills to disclose and concede; skills to give and receive feedback; self awareness; the ability to adapt to the styles of others; the willingness to deal with issues/ concerns / directly – all with absolutely no fear of reprisal.
