Innovative Leadership Team Development Solutions for Strong Company Growth in Cape Coral, FL

Key Ways to Use Team Training and Team Assessment Tools for Maximum Effectiveness in the Cape Coral area

A successful professional team is a group of people who work well together, trust each other and are collectively responsible for achieving desired results or working toward a business-specific goal. Developing a cohesive team takes time, energy and effort, but when you participate in our team development and training program for working professionals, your team can create and sustain the results you need.

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 Characteristics of Team Success

Common trouble signs make low-performing teams easy to identify. Meetings in which certain members constantly interrupt others or where awkward silences and tense conversations regularly occur indicate unbalanced worxking relationships. During a study by MIT's Human Dynamics Laboratory, participants wore electronic badges, which captured certain behaviors as they spoke to teammates. The sociometrical results were profound and gave researchers new insight into successful teams as well as unsuccessful groups.
In successful teams:

  • Individuals spoke directly to each other as well as their group leader
  • Individuals shared ideas directly with one another and connected outside of work
  • Individuals went scouting outside the group and brought new information back to the team
  • Individuals faced one another during conversations and spoke with enthusiasm
  • All team members contributed equally during conversations

In short, when positive communication flows within a group, the team works like a well-oiled machine. Well-designed training courses can shape leadership teams and cross-functional teams by helping members develop the skills they need to communicate and collaborate more effectively within groups.

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’.

Cueing Up for Leadership Team Development: Four Questions to Ask Yourself About Your Team

How Well Does Everyone Know Each Other?

Even the most awkward first dates get a run for their money when new coworkers are suddenly thrust onto a project together. The lack of a clear leader, being unfamiliar with each other's working styles, clashing approaches to problem-solving and fear-induced timidity can all contribute to discomfort and substandard progress. You're unlikely to jump into the deep-end of discussion over introductory cocktails, and you need a similar “getting to know you” period in professional environments. Simply learning about teammates' perceived strengths and weaknesses, work histories and even hobbies breaks the ice and gives everyone equal footing and an equal voice from the outset.

Is Your Structure Lopsided?

You've got a good view from your managerial perch. Use it to survey your team and see whether certain parties are pulling more weight than others. Weak links aren't necessarily a cause for expulsion but rather an opportunity to redistribute tasks or probe the source of subpar performance to see whether there aren't more deep-seated issues threatening your team's foundation. Take note of sagging morale and consistent complaints either originating from or directed at particular team members; these red flags are open doors allowing you to address problems before they hit critical mass.

Would Your Team Benefit From a Change in Perspective?

Sometimes, the best thing you can do for your group is to shake up the routine. Sending everyone on a company retreat can be helpful in some instances, but often, the same problems arise once everyone is back in familiar territory, rededicated to the same tasks and without a new structure in place to prevent backsliding. Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions defies the odds and helps new habits take root by getting to the heart of what makes each team special. Rather than offering one-time events or a remote classroom setting where you send managers for a day or a week, our programs are customized to the hilt, taking each client's needs, goals and supervisory structure into account. Your experiences and ambitions help shape who you are, and they should help shape your work team training too.

What Is the Collective Goal?

Answer this question yourself, and then pose it to each team member individually. If the responses don't match, you've identified a major obstacle. Often, our focus is on the next milestone, and we can't see the forest for the trees. We work at capacity (or beyond) to meet an immediate deadline without much thought as to where we're ultimately going and certainly not how we're going to get there. Collaborative endeavors only prevail if everyone's efforts are in sync. Think of a rowboat: If there are four oars pulling in different directions, you'll never get anywhere. Confusion over team objectives is a symptom of more widespread miscommunication, and you're bound to see more evidence the closer you look.

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 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.

Great team-training courses help participants feel accomplished, energetic and ready to achieve challenging objectives. Well-nurtured employees at all levels interact with their colleagues and peers in healthier ways, helping to create a positive atmosphere in the workplace. To achieve real success, businesses choose tailor-made team-building programs, which empower their participants and ultimately drive company growth.
