High performance team development

High performance team development


Why focus on creating high performing teams?



Put simply, effective teams create synergy. This results in better ideas, enhanced solutions and most importantly a happier and more engaged workforce. In contrast, where teams don’t work, they can cause distraction and demotivation.

We work with teams to improve their performance by looking at them through three lenses:


behaviour lensBehaviour: We use the powerful and highly memorable psychometric tool Insights Discovery® to help team members better understand each other and foster improved team dynamics.
motivation lensMotivation: We use Motivational Maps® to help team members increase self-awareness, understand what is driving team performance, and how best to harness this. Most importantly we explore why people behave as they do.
focus lens
Focus on results: We use the ‘Five Functions of a Cohesive Team’ model (based on Patrick Lencioni’s work) to build high performance teams that deliver strong results. We do this by helping people to build the necessary levels of trust to enable robust and necessary debate and challenge within teams, which leads to commitment, enables accountability and increases team performance.
