Innovative Leadership Team Development Solutions for Strong Company Growth in Springfield, IL

Cross-Functional Team Training using a powerful Team Assessment and Team-Building Program in the Springfield area

Behind every successful company lies a cohesive, streamlined executive team and equally cohesive work teams. When team members at every level work competently with one another, they drive overall growth and create a great working culture where employees can thrive. One of the most effective ways to cultivate success is to invest in a custom team-training program for your managers or cross-functional teams. A tailor-made training program builds on each participant’s strengths, helping your working teams collaborate comfortably and complete projects efficiently.

Five Behaviors that Make Teams Great, and How Companies Can Encourage Them

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:

  • The importance of trust among coworkers. It's not enough for a few personally close members of the team to trust each other; all members — at all levels — must believe everyone else is capable of handling their position, willing to ask for help when needed and honest in working toward shared goals.
  • The role conflict plays in any team. Even teams that share consistent trust are made up of individuals, and people don't always agree. Teams that want to move forward can't always avoid conflict, so it's important for groups to learn constructive communication skills and how to disagree without unbalancing progress.
  • Why commitment to each other and excellence is paramount. Every person on the team must buy in to the end goal and be willing to do their part in working toward it.
  • How accountability falls on every member of the team. Passing the buck isn't an option in a team environment: everyone rises and falls together, so team members can't fall into blame games or avoid accountability for duties that are theirs.
  • How to work toward results together. Meeting goals as a team involves flexibility as individuals and as a unit, and this isn't something everyone is naturally equipped to handle. Team development programs help groups — from executive leadership to production staff — learn how to see the big picture and how each person fits into it. That knowledge, along with all the other skills learned during team training, helps everyone contribute positively to results.

Where Does Team Strength Come From?

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.

Team Development Results You Can See

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.

How to Improve Your Team-Training Program

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

  • Trust
    Remember the ropes courses you did in summer camp? Typically, they required a team to work together to solve a series of physical challenges. For example, the team had to find a way to get every member over a 10-foot wall without the use of ladders, ropes or outside help. And then there were the dreaded "trust falls," where each team member took a turn falling backward from an elevated platform, trusting their teammates below to catch them.

    For most people, such activities can be frustrating — terrifying, even, for newly formed teams not yet comfortable with each other — but they are undeniably effective at building trust quickly. While our training programs might not have your team scaling walls or catching each other in midair, we design similarly powerful exercises (often focused upon real business challenges) to establish strong, enduring bonds of trust.
  • Conflict Resolution
    Fear of conflict can plague a team and hold it back from its potential. What often happens is that one or two alphas emerge and dominate team discussions, and the others are afraid to challenge them or offer alternative viewpoints. As a result, potentially great ideas get left off the table for fear of rocking the boat. Our training programs teach teams to rechannel their fear of conflict into respectful, constructive discussions where every member feels their ideas are valued. This allows a robust marketplace of ideas to flourish within your team.

How Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions Can Help

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.

Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions offers programs throughout cities all over the United States.
