The most successful companies in the world all have something in common: they invest in their people. Businesses nurture potential when they treat their employees like valuable assets, consciously cultivating an atmosphere in which managers grow into outstanding executives. Custom-built team development programs help reengineer working relationships so colleagues collaborate seamlessly and tackle challenges with new enthusiasm.
Even if you hire the cream of the crop, if your team doesn't work together in a cohesive manner, you might not see results. In a manufacturing environment, we know that production is only as fast as the slowest machine — this concept is true in any situation where people must work together to accomplish goals. If one person isn't working in the same direction as everyone else, the entire team suffers. If technical skills are robust but communication falters, the team is likely to face obstacles. By understanding and encouraging five behaviors for team cohesion, companies can develop teams that bring coveted hard and soft skills to the table and work together to achieve and exceed expectations.
At Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions, we provide customized team development programs that teach these five behaviors and provide work groups with the resources they need to continue building on skills learned. During personalized training, your team of 6 to 40 individuals will learn about:
Recently, researchers at MIT's Human Dynamics Laboratory found a reliable team-building strategy while studying group dynamics. Cohesive teams, they discovered, were bound together not only by work-related commitments, but also by strong interpersonal relationships. The best indicator of a team's success in any workplace — whether it was a bank, a hospital, a warehouse or anywhere else — was its energy and engagement outside work-related projects.
To test their findings in real time, MIT's research group suggested that the manager of a call center reshuffle his schedule so all the people on specific teams took their breaks simultaneously. Team members were suddenly able to socialize with one another in an informal setting on a regular basis, and that led to an increase in camaraderie. The manager subsequently saw his new strategy pay off when the average handling time in the call center fell by 20 percent in his lower-performing teams and 8 percent overall. According to these results, cultivating fellowship in individual teams can lead to remarkable success for everyone.
Organizations that invest in teams see both tangible and intangible results. Communication that inspires and motivates helps create morale among the entire team — something that would be worth its weight in gold if you could measure it. Other results that come from strong leadership team and work team development include higher employee retention rates (and substantial HR cost savings), increased production and efficiency and better problem solving.
In addition to teaching teams to employ the five behaviors that make them cohesive and productive, we provide you with tools for monitoring results. Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions’ team development program includes a progress report framework . You'll receive survey results, points of discussion, a customized plan of action, guidance on setting priorities and a DiSC® team map — all designed to help your team navigate ongoing team building as you go forth to conquer business goals together.
The need for psychological safety plays itself out as you work through team development, making itself evident in every stage of the process. These five behaviors join to create the environment in which a successful team can flourish.
Moving through these stages and creating an environment of psychological safety isn't something that happens at a day-long event with people from other companies undergoing training as well. At Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions, we design each program to meet the needs of each client, looking at specific goals, managerial levels and existing programs. We customize each team development program to be specific for your unique intact teams, operational teams, decision-making teams and work-groups to reach true effectiveness.
