Customized Leadership Team Development Programs Create Stronger Businesses in Anaheim, CA

Cross-Functional Team Training using a powerful Team Assessment and Team-Building Program in the Anaheim area

Successful companies are run by cohesive teams that work together to achieve the same goals. That requires trust, excellent communication skills and a give-and-take flow that doesn’t come natural to every person or group. Our team development programs help work groups understand and practice the behaviors that put these traits in action, and we even provide assessment tools so teams can continuously gauge their progress and work to create an ever more positive, productive culture.

Why Team Building? Identifying the Five Dysfunctions of a Team

To build up a team, you first have to discover that team’s most glaring pain points. The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni outlines the following:

  1. Absence of Trust
  2. Fear of Conflict
  3. Lack of Commitment
  4. Avoidance of Accountability
  5. Inattention to Results

Each dysfunction forms a pillar supporting the team as a whole; even one weak column increases the threat of collapse. High-performing teams aren’t necessarily perfect and rarely (if ever) are all five dysfunctions permanently banished. Instead, team members are constantly asking questions, re-evaluating their individual roles and interpersonal skills, and addressing any changes that need to be made.

Our leadership team development experts turn training retreats into launching pads, igniting long-term discussions that create enduring and positive change. Patterns shift, attitudes evolve, and groups acquire a deep understanding of where they are so they can consciously influence where it is they want to go.

The Statistic-Backed Argument for Collaboration

In a study conducted by the Queens University of Charlotte, 39 percent of recipients expressed that they believe other people in their organization weren't collaborating enough. Additionally, three out of four respondents said they felt working together was “very important.” Those two facts illustrate the seriousness of teamwork and the dire straits an organization can be in when collaboration is shoved on the back burner, either intentionally or as the product of a strained office environment.

Employees or group participants don't want to feel like they're bearing the brunt of the workload. Feelings of resentment and discontent inevitably follow, as does isolation and, in many cases, a breaking point. In short, poor teamwork is a breeding ground for miscommunication, lack of productivity and even the loss of valued employees. Luckily, although prevention is preferable, repair is absolutely possible. A thorough evaluation of your team — not just as a whole but as the sum of many moving parts — is a vital starting point for what can ultimately become a long-term exercise in reflection and improvement.

What Our Team Training Looks Like

On the flip side of dysfunction, you’ll find both power and purpose — two things our team training initiatives are designed to achieve. The heart of that journey is an assessment-based learning experience called The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team.

This model turns the dysfunctions above on their heads, reintroducing those pain points into tools.

  • From an absence of trust comes transparency and honesty
  • Fear of conflict gives way to constructive debates that encourage growth and cooperative ideas
  • Interaction and participation shoves lack of commitment firmly into the past
  • Shared responsibility for a shared goal ensures accountability across the board
  • Results are no longer incidental, but they become the primary focus of all team efforts

By learning about each team member and educating them on their own key behavioral characteristics — powered by Everything DiSC® or AllTypes (MBTI)— we begin to break down each group into its most elemental components so we can better structure a more capable and vigorous whole. You’ll discover more about yourself than you thought possible as you watch your own processes improve, but the real magic is in witnessing how each individual’s attributes gradually interlock with their teammates’.

How to Improve Your Team-Training Program

Here are a few of the things we emphasize as we custom-design a team-training and development program for your organization.

  • Trust
    Remember the ropes courses you did in summer camp? Typically, they required a team to work together to solve a series of physical challenges. For example, the team had to find a way to get every member over a 10-foot wall without the use of ladders, ropes or outside help. And then there were the dreaded "trust falls," where each team member took a turn falling backward from an elevated platform, trusting their teammates below to catch them.

    For most people, such activities can be frustrating — terrifying, even, for newly formed teams not yet comfortable with each other — but they are undeniably effective at building trust quickly. While our training programs might not have your team scaling walls or catching each other in midair, we design similarly powerful exercises (often focused upon real business challenges) to establish strong, enduring bonds of trust.
  • Conflict Resolution
    Fear of conflict can plague a team and hold it back from its potential. What often happens is that one or two alphas emerge and dominate team discussions, and the others are afraid to challenge them or offer alternative viewpoints. As a result, potentially great ideas get left off the table for fear of rocking the boat. Our training programs teach teams to rechannel their fear of conflict into respectful, constructive discussions where every member feels their ideas are valued. This allows a robust marketplace of ideas to flourish within your team.

How Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions Can Help

Our master trainers can design a team-building program to fit your company's specific needs. We do not have events or local classrooms where managers can attend a day or a week of training with other managers. Instead, we consult with you and learn what your goals are. Then, we create a training program from scratch. We help you cultivate effective teams no matter what the size or department - from leadership and decision-making teams, to operational work groups, to special project teams, the model is a powerful tool for transforming the culture and improving the team's results.

How Team Training Makes Waves

Many experts refer to team building as one of the most important investments you can make. Improving team cohesion and function means making better decisions based on aggregate input, wasting less time, and, perhaps most importantly, boosting your bottom line. Whether you’re a nonprofit or a Fortune 500 company, success can be quantified and a high-functioning team creates superior outcomes.

Speaking of quantifying results: every group that completes the Five Behaviors assessment is eligible for a Progress Report six to 12 months later. This serves to reinforce the idea that change is not a single step forward but rather a treadmill — you’re never truly “there,” but you can increase your endurance, lengthen your stride, and teach your body to work more efficiently and effectively so you’re in a position to re-imagine your goal into something even bigger and better.

Who Team Assessment and Leadership Team Development Training is For

Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions designs training and employee development programs for leadership teams, work teams and cross-functional teams. Our curriculum uses research backed building blocks and then is custom-built for each client’s unique needs, goals, and team makeup. We create a one-of-a-kind “adult-learning” environment and agenda that’s tailor-made and remarkably effective. Most companies come to us with between 10 and 30 employees at time, allowing for targeted training that compels progress.

We have two programs:

Single-Day Team Development Training

Provides an intense overview of what high-performing teams must learn to outperform their competitors and fulfill their goals. When your team only has a single day to give to the goal of effective teamwork, this is the program that can change the course in a snap.

Team Development for Lasting Change Program

This is not a quick "day program" or a cookie-cutter seminar that repeats word for word from city to city. Instead, we offer a laser-focused approach that uses the best practices in leadership development and work team development to help your team not only create but sustain results.

Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions has programs across the United States, centered in all major metropolitan areas. Dates and times are set according to your needs, reflecting our adherence to client-centric systems. You’re not sending your leaders to participate in a managerial meet-and-greet or to learn skills that only hold unilateral benefits. This is coordinated learning founded on well-respected principles molded to fit your team’s makeup, and it truly works.

The very best team-training and team-development programs are designed with your company in mind. Attendees emerge with a new sense of well-being and feel smarter, stronger and more ready to tackle challenges than they did when they arrived. In turn, they inspire their peers and subordinates, causing an uptick in morale and an increase in productivity. In the end, an investment in your most important, but often most neglected assets — your leadership teams and work teams -— produces widespread results that positively affect your business.
