Developing Effective Teams

Building effective teams is key to fostering a more engaged workforce. This translates to a stronger company culture, improved employee retention, and ultimately, a boost to your bottom line. Developing effective teams is an ongoing process, but it pays off in significant ways.

Who said team building had to be lame?

Leadership and team development go hand-in-hand. While team building exercises often get a bad rap, creating high-performing, focused teams that collaborate effectively can be truly rewarding. Developing effective teams, whether physically co-located or virtual, requires the right tools and experience. We can help you achieve this – and make it fun!

Our experienced consultants and facilitators will co-design leadership and team development sessions tailored to your specific needs. These sessions can be delivered in-person at your office or even virtually. No team is too big or too small for us.

Developing effective teams in practice!

What is work culture?

Work culture is the character and personality of your business. It’s the beliefs, values, attitudes and behaviours that define your day to day.

What is organisational change?

Organisational change comes in many forms. It involves rethinking and shifting the current status quo and often has company-wide impact.

Diagnostic tools for teams

As part of our work together, we may ask your people to spend some time completing the following diagnostic tools.

Opportunities – Obstacles Quotient (QO2) Profile

Provides feedback on how an individual responds to new situations and change, solves problems, focus on goals and how they view time.

Team Management Profile (TMP)

Gives you insights into how you prefer to work and how you’re likely to interact with others in the workplace.

Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0)

Measures an individual’s emotional intelligence. It’s based on 15 competencies grouped into five composites.

Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI)

Uses self-assessment and colleague feedback to identify your thinking and behavioural styles (strengths and weaknesses).
