Take a look at winning sports teams, such as the New England Patriots and Golden State Warriors. Aside from the individual talent, the first thing you might notice is how they perform as cohesive units. When they run a play, it's like each player knows what the others are thinking. Such a level of connection doesn't come about spontaneously. Months of rigorous team building and team development go into crafting the finished product that fans see. With custom-built team-training programs, the professional coaches and master trainers at Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions can help you develop high-level unity and foster engagement in your work teams.
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.
Former professional basketball player Phil Jackson once said, "The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team." That quote says everything about the importance of working together and developing trust — each team member is weakened if the group isn't cohesive and working toward common goals. The team as a unit is strengthened when everyone communicates, works together and applies their unique talents and skills in logical, cooperative ways.
Louisa May Alcott, author of the classic book Little Women puts it even more succinctly. She says, "It takes two flints to make a fire." Organizations that want to light a fire within work groups must bring the right people together and help them understand how to strike against each other in positive ways to create the right flames.
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. 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.
The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team leadership team training and development program is tailored to meet your organization's very specific and unique needs and culture. Through training, coaching and team development, you can facilitate trust, strengthen your team members’ ability to deal with conflicts, and their collaborative skills, all of which come together to produce the results you want your executive and work teams to achieve.
When you're able to harness the talents and personalities of your team members to work together cohesively toward a common goal, everyone benefits. Imagine your team making smart decisions together, tapping into each person's special abilities, and staying focused cooperatively to get results. That's the kind of teamwork that provides your organization with the ability to compete at its best.
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.
