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