Team Development

Premise: Cross-functional teams are the most powerful tool available to organizations in delivering results. Building and maintaining high-performance teams can also be very challenging.

Cross-functional teams bring together individuals with specific expertise, diverse personalities with varied interests and many years of combined experience-- a powerful combination that is inherently dysfunctional. Diverse expertise, interests, and experiences bring a combination of strengths and gaps, sometimes conflicting points of view, and communication preferences and styles that may be misunderstood or misinterpreted.

Yet, building strong teams is both possible and remarkably simple. Organizations with highly successful cross-functional teams do not take team building for granted. By establishing a model for high functioning teams, and putting it into practice daily, you create a foundation for each team member to contribute to the team.

We offer embedded services to build needed teams quickly, while also teaching the skills for future team development. Our services ensure that teams begin with the end in mind.  With clear understanding of defined success criteria and by establishing a team structure that best fits that criteria, your team  members can focus on getting results. We strengthen communication and collaboration processes by helping individuals understand and appreciate individual perspectives and how different perspectives impact attitudes, priorities, and processes.

We offer customized services to match the specific needs of your organization and teams within your organization. By developing team models, you can be confident that every member has the opportunity, ability, and motivation to contribute his or her best.
