Are dysfunctional teams harming your organisation and stopping you from reaching your goals?
You have all the right people working for you. They have the credentials, the experience and the commitment. But why can’t they work together as a team? It is no secret that teams outperform individuals acting alone especially when performance requires multiple skills, judgements, and experiences. When teams are not functioning at their best this can produce unhealthy conflict, reduce productivity, create re-work and take the focus off results and high performance. At the executive level this dysfunction has wider reaching impacts. It can be the decider between corporate success or failure.
Anyone who has worked in different teams will know how easy it is for teams to become dysfunctional. We are all individuals with competing agendas, egos and different personality traits. Couple this with limited resources, lack of trust or unclear priorities, and you have the recipe for a dysfunctional in a team. When organisations go through change, hiring, restructuring or growth, re-alignment of teams can be one of the biggest opportunities to create the most success.
We help you create high-performing teams whilst also providing you with the skills needed to keep those teams strong in the face of any adversity and change.
MODAL achieves high performing teams by working closely with workplace leaders and their intact team on the following aspects:
- Defining a purpose for the team (separate to the organisation’s purpose) to create alignment
- Determining and utilising a set of principles which guide how the team will function together
- Building a deeper understanding of each other’s personality styles and drivers
- Improving meeting processes and structures
- Creating shared goals, mutual accountabilities and joint work products
- Implementing technology systems that enable teams to work better together
- Reviewing how and where team members spend their time to improve efficiencies
- Surfacing the issues that are not being talked about that affect the team (naming the elephants in the room)
