Building high performing teams fit for a hybrid world

What does a good team look like to you? What do they feel like? Safe, productive, trusting, challenging yet fun?

And what difference does good teamwork make? Do they have better ideas, have an impact, deliver results, and, most importantly, have happier and more engaged people?

Great teams are ones people want to be part of. And don't want to leave.

In contrast, where teams don't work, they can cause distraction and demotivation and waste; waste of resources and waste of human potential. Left too long and they can start to build toxic cultures of their own. Then you really do have a problem.

You know that in a hybrid world, team working and understanding what makes each other 'tick' is vital. That's made more difficult when people work across multi-workspaces and work more flexible hours.

How do you help individuals truly get to know each other and build trust when they don't spend so much time together?

How do you know how to develop healthy conflict when people aren't in the same room?

How do you build commitment when people work apart from each other? Our approach to team development answers these questions and more. 

We can help you see your team 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 build positive team dynamics. We remove the friction.
motivation lensMotivation:                                                We use Motivational Maps® and its big sister, mojo, to help team members increase self-awareness, understand what is driving team performance, and how best to harness this. These tools explain 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 teams that deliver consistently 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. 

Perhaps you have a virtual team and new levels of tension are starting to creep in.

Maybe you want to explore new ways to get hybrid teams to work.

Or is it about developing higher levels of performance despite all the uncertainties the team face?

Book a call with us today so we can chat about what you want from your team - and what you've tried so far.
