Coming together is a beginning.
Keeping together is progress.
Working together is success.
- Henry Ford
A team can be defined as: “A group of people with different skills and different tasks, who work together on a common project, service, or goal, with a meshing of functions and mutual support”.
How often is this the case? In many “teams” individuals work to their own agenda and don’t communicate or support one another. Some teams lack a common vision or purpose, which can lead to a range of issues which manifest themselves in poor customer service, increased costs, reduced productivity, low morale, high staff turnover, stress and absenteeism.
Do any of these issues sound familiar in your organisation? I’ll work with you to identify the cause of the problems and then develop and implement a creative team development programme that’s tailored exactly to address your specific challenges and needs.
Following your initial enquiry I’ll organise a meeting with you to find out more about your current business challenges and team development needs. I’ll then prepare a proposal which will set out objectives, outcomes, measures of success and proposed activities, which may include a mix of facilitated workshops, personality profiling, coaching and mentoring, and possibly even some team building activities such as dancing!
What are the benefits?
- Improved communication across teams, leading to increased productivity, greater customer satisfaction and reduced costs
- Greater understanding of employee skills and strengths, leading to more effective resource utilisation
- Increased employee engagement, leading to greater motivation and increased staff retention
- Improved staff welfare and reduced stress levels, leading to fewer instances of absenteeism and subsequent sick pay expenses
- Increased job satisfaction and motivation – resulting in improved productivity
