Team Development Programmes and Solutions

We offer comprehensive team development programmes and solutions that reduce interpersonal competition and conflict, generate greater cooperation, improve team performance, and transform accomplished work groups into outstanding teams.

Our team development programmes and solutions are for teams at all levels, whether it’s an executive leadership team, functional management team or a front line customer service team. Tailored to meet the needs of the business and the team concerned, our focused and challenging team development delivers what your company needs most, a team of outstanding individuals who united and together improve the business’ performance and drive competitive advantage.

We have significant experience of working with clients globally, and teams from organisations such as Lenzing AG, Manpower, Geodis and the Royal Holloway University, have all benefited significantly from our team leadership development programmes.

Each team event or programme is different and depends on the context and the perceived needs of the group. Interventions can be a one-off event to work on a particular topic or team dynamic, through to an extended piece of work over a number of months.  Key features of our team development solutions include:

 

  • Contracting with your team leader and team members on the purpose of the development programme and anticipated benefits.

  • Team needs diagnostic assessment. To develop a programme that addresses your team’s most vital concerns, our expert consultants conduct an exacting needs assessment that uncovers your team’s underlying issues and challenges. An integral part of the process, the assessment encourages buy-in from team members and their leader as the development process unfolds.

  • Custom solution design - Our consultants work with key individuals from your business to design a team development programme that meets your precise needs. Based on the outcomes that have been outlined, our highly experienced team of consultants prepare the team development programme and associated materials. Every aspect of the programme from development activities to social or charitable and experiential events, is tailored to optimise the team’s learning and maximise the development process.

  • One or more sessions focusing on the effective operation of the team, and featuring a high degree of openness and disclosure between team members.We use a range of team development interventions, for example:

    • Specific work based team development activities that might be focussed on clarifying team goals, roles, improving communications, interactions and sharing of knowledge and skills.

    • Charity based team development events. Working in partnership with a charity we provide creative and challenging team working experiences that take teams outside of their normal working environment to further enhance team work and leadership behaviour, while providing something lasting and of value to the charity concerned.

    • Non work related indoor and outdoor activities that challenge individuals and teams both cerebrally and physically and enable them to build more effective and productive working relationships.

  • A methodology for the team to review and maintain its progress beyond any direct interventions from us.

  • A means to measure the impact the development programme has had on the performance of your team to ensure your business has gained the necessary value from the investment you have made with us.

We can develop your teams to deliver a fundamental shift in their own culture and performance that will ultimately impact on the performance of your business. We have the unique ability to deeply understand your business vision, strategy, and goals and to design leadership team development solutions that will deliver significant business benefits.  To learn more about our team development programmes and the impact they have read our Manpower case study.  Alternatively see how our other clients have benefited from our support by visiting What Our Clients Say.
