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

Improve Your Team's Productivity and Capability With This Team Training and Team Assessment Program in the Springfield area

Successful companies are run by cohesive teams that work together to achieve the same goals. That requires trust, excellent communication skills and a give-and-take flow that doesn’t come natural to every person or group. Our team development programs help work groups understand and practice the behaviors that put these traits in action, and we even provide assessment tools so teams can continuously gauge their progress and work to create an ever more positive, productive culture.

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.

Nurturing Employee Success

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.

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.

Evaluating How Well Your Teams Trust and Work Together

Even a small disconnect in your team is enough to create bottlenecks or cause miscommunication that creates greater schisms. Leadership teams must stay connected to work teams, regularly participating in meetings and one-on-one discussions so they can evaluate how the team works together and whether distrust is creating barriers. Here are some signs that your team isn't doing a great job at developing trust.

Meetings or collaborative work are huge negatives.
If team members regularly come up with excuses to get out of group work or avoid meetings, or you hear sarcastic comments about meetings from team members, problems might be brewing. While it's good for teams to point out when meetings are unnecessary and simply taking time away from production, if staff hates getting together at all, then they aren't communicating and helping each other in the right way.

Team members hide mistakes and flaws.
In a culture of trust, each team member can admit to a weakness without worrying that others will take advantage of it. That means each employee is more likely to admit they don't know something (so they can be taught) or fess up to a mistake early (so it can more easily be corrected). Working together in this way builds even more trust amid team members, creating a positive snowball effect.

Grudges are a constant presence.
Without trust, team members may default to assuming negative intent on the part of others, and forgiveness isn't often present. That means teams can be derailed by perceived slights or real mistakes, and they don't communicate well enough to get through the issue without long-term, negative consequences.
These are the types of things you can avoid by ensuring your teams are well-trained to promote trust, honesty and professional communication across the group.

Team Development Programs Tailored to Your Company

Companies that select tailor-made team development courses instead of standard team-building activities tend to experience greater success in the long run. On the surface, cookie-cutter team-building schemes seem convenient and inexpensive, but they don't offer the business-specific qualities inherent in high-quality workshops or engage the participants in a competency-building learning experience. Custom team development programs designed specifically for your company by Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions, help teams of all sizes (from leadership and executive teams to mid-level teams to special project teams). Our programs are specifically designed to engage your team members in working toward higher performance and company-specific goals, rewarding and validating their efforts along the way.

Turnkey Coaching & Development Solutions offers programs throughout cities all over the United States. Starting with well-respected resources and building custom solutions for each organization ensures participating organizations get maximum ROI from each training. We don’t provide cookie-cutter training seminars or weekend programs you send a single employee to; instead, we work with you to develop customized team development solutions that hit hard out of the gate for your organization.

Our team development program aims to provide your team with the resources required to meet and exceed goals — together. Ability alone isn't enough to sustain a professional team for long; team members need proper training, trust and commitment to the team's goals to be successful.
