The components in any machine are vital to its overall performance. Similarly, the people in any company are essential elements in its success. When you nurture your executives and employees with effective training schemes, you help them function more efficiently at work. Team development programs designed with your company in mind can help managers and work teams work together more cohesively, improving overall morale and driving your business’ growth.
An effective team is a collaborative unit that's able to work toward a common goal successfully. If your team is dysfunctional in any way, you'll see a failure to meet your goals or a delay in meeting them, as well as fractured relationships and non-productive interaction between team members.
Turnkey Coaching and Development Solution's team development program focusing on the Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team provides a highly useful metric by which to evaluate your own work team or leadership team.
According to a recent study by the American Psychological Association, 93 percent of all employees were more likely to do their best at work when they felt valued by their employers or valued at work. In contrast, only 33 percent of people who didn't feel like a valued part of the team said they felt motivated to make an effort in the workplace. Among those who felt valued, only one in five said they'd consider looking for a new job in the next year. On the other hand, 50 percent of the people who didn't feel valued expressed an interest in seeking alternative employment within 12 months.
Finding the right employees, preparing them for work and making them part of a truly cohesive team is expensive and time-consuming, so investing in existing staff and working to boost morale and encourage productivity and teamwork is important. Well-designed training courses nurture participants and encourage them to excel, to push the limits of their abilities and to work constructively and productively in teams.
Your team development program must include a way to assess whether your development efforts are working. The Harvard Business Review recommends paying attention to the team's output and the ability of the team to collaborate, as well as individual assessments of each of the team members.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team Progress Report provides a template for just such an assessment, allowing you to pinpoint areas of improvement to celebrate and build on as well as those ways in which your team still needs to improve.
If a team is truly working together in a relationship of mutual accountability, the Progress Report makes that clear. It also shows obstacles to development and paves the way for team members to assess their own collaboration.
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.
