team development Success is no longer a question of outstanding individuals, but rather of high performance teams.
With the increasing individuality of customer demands and project requirements the importance of teamwork increases. The ressources, expertise and above all the cooperation of all team members is needed to deliver high quality products on time.
Highly motivated and dedicated employees, a cooperative work atmosphere, a clear commitment to team goals, accountability and solution oriented performance - something many team leaders and often team members long for and aspire to.
Teamwork, however, doesn’t always meet the desired and necessary standards. Neverending discussions with ambiguous results, unclear responsibilities, an ineffective workflow – stress factors that in the long run have high costs causing continual delays, frequent mistakes and a propensity for team conflicts.
Sometimes team conflictsare what hinders teams in reaching their true potenail. In such cases blaming games and power games dominate the work atmosphere. Loss of motivation and a decline in the quality of team performance are the inevitable consequences.
Professional team development can have an immediate and positive impact on the quality of team work.
Frequent measures are:
- identifying and resolving dysfunctional group dynamics
- identifying and utilizing team strengths
- defining team goals
- implementing new meeting formats and re-designing existing meeting structures
- improving the definition and coordination of work processes
- establishing a constructive feedback culture
- establishing solution oriented communication techniques
