Team Development

Collaboration under pressure

Team development initiatives can help move employees from a fire-fighting mentality to a team with purpose and structure. Effective programs provide teams with a common language and set of skills to resolve issues, make decisions, plan ahead, and execute responsibilities.

By training teams and facilitating their use of new skills, teams become more self-sufficient, and organizations operate more efficiently. Team development increases the ability to collaborate under pressure and leverages the team’s collective brainpower to resolve problems and manage risk.

What Diagnostics Is

Building powerful teams improves business outcomes

  • Collaborative cultures outperform all others

    Collaboratively addressing daily operational issues is clearly the way forward. Providing team members with a common approach and language for issue resolution helps team members effectively contribute every day.

  • Empowerment needs enablement

    Delegating responsibility is not enough. Teams become empowered by addressing gaps in their knowledge, skills, and support infrastructure. This begins by identifying specific needs and how teams can better meet them.

  • Team development provides skills for:

    Fast resolution of day-to-day issues × Structured meetings that drive effective action × A shared approach that leverages brainpower × Practices that separate assumption from facts × Analytic problem-solving and decision-making abilities × Risk management discipline.

  • Good teams need good leaders

    Teams require leaders who advise, facilitate and coach their colleagues as they collaborate. Leadership training helps them to role model and support their colleagues, sustaining improvements to the way work is done.

Whether team members are working side-by-side, remotely, or from distant global locations, when teams are primed to identify and set their priorities, apply analytic thinking to resolving issues, and to tackle difficult business challenges, the promise of today’s flatter, global and more agile organizations is within reach.
