Building Team Trust and Effectiveness

Unloading the Baggage That Holds A Team Back From Peak Performance

Many companies have gone through elaborate team building processes and learned very effective tools for building better teams. Unfortunately, in many instances the tools fail to work when the personalities, communication patterns or reactions to increased stress put those tools to the test.

Even when teams are functional, there is often low grade mistrust and resistance to working together that build up over time. Rather than deal with these potential conflicts, most people choose to ignore them and keep smiling in the halls. The consequence, over time, is people "minding their own business" — a great corporate excuse for a lack of synergy and team collaboration.

All team building programs are not alike. This program is designed to dramatically deepen your understanding of the way your team operates, establish a trusting environment, agreeing to tell the truth, surfacing the issues, and moving past the impasses and conflicts which regularly inhibit optimal performance and results.

After the air super active. has been cleared and a new standard of trust has been established, the team will learn practical tools for functioning better together in the future, including effective meeting management skills. At this point, the team is introduced to new meeting management skills that will support their new commitments moving forward and keep them from slipping back into old behaviors.

Finally, the team will create a specific "Team Improvement Action Plan" to help insure that the members’ new commitment to the team does not extinguish once they return back to work.
