Leadership Team Development Programs That Work in Virginia Beach, VA

Strengthen Your Executive Team Training and Cross-Functional Team Training with a Team Assessment Program in the Virginia Beach area

Iconic NFL coach Vince Lombardi once said, "Individual commitment to a group effort — that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work." It’s a stellar line for two reasons: It addresses the need for dedication on the part individuals in order for a team to succeed, and it touches on how far-reaching those achievements can truly be. Whether you already have seasons upon seasons of wins under your belt or just a hunger to be better, a customized leadership team development program can be the turning point your team needs to reach the next level.

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 Team Contributions Are Like Stone Soup

In many ways, a successful business team is a lot like stone soup. You've probably heard the old fable: Two travelers, tired and hungry, stop in a poor town and, having nothing to eat, begin boiling a stone in a pot of water in view of the townspeople. Curious residents come by to see what they're doing and listen to their adventures. Upon learning that they have only a stone to cook, the people begin offering their suggestions of additional ingredients to improve the results: one brings potatoes, another bring carrots and a third bring cabbage. Soon, a delicious stew is simmering to be shared by all.

Like the travelers' stone soup, a successful team is made up of the contributions of each individual. Only when everyone brings something to the table (pun intended) can a cohesive unit be created so that the company's success is shared by all.

How We Can Help Your Team Come Together

Effective teams bring together disparate individuals to create a group that works together for the benefit of the company, with each one's part clearly defined. We help teams improve communication, cooperation and culture so they can better move as a unit toward desired goals.
Our proven techniques, taken in part from The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team, help you train team members to make improved decisions, avoid useless discussions and arguments and take advantage of each individual's strengths to form a more effective unit. Participants learn about their team style and how it affects and enhances the team's functioning. Building on the five behaviors — trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results — each employee will be able to see their role and achieve more as a team member.

Our Training Is Customized for Your Company's Situation

Be assured that you will receive individualized attention when you come to us. Unlike some training companies, we don't offer open events for managers from several companies to attend. We create programs specifically for your company, customized to your organization's needs and goals and taking into account any other programs in place, so you come away with useful, relevant strategies and tools to help your group and, ultimately, add to the success of the entire organization. Our team development programs are usually geared toward intact teams or work-groups (both large and small teams may be accommodated), so everyone walks away with the effective teamwork knowledge and practice they need.

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.

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.
