TEAM PERFORMANCE

The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.

— Phil Jackson

 

Our leadership offsites give your team the opportunity to step outside of the day to day, innovate, make key decisions and elevate performance. As a leader, your responsibility lies in ensuring that each team member has skin in the game, that each voice is heard, and that a human connection is secure – enhancing the collective end-game. When a team is operating well, consistently better results emerge.

Optimally performing teams:

  • constructively challenge each others ideas to generate the best thinking
  • efficiently make decisions
  • embrace and move through conflict
  • have a high level of trust
  • are better because of each other

 

This leads naturally to greater innovation, strategic risk-taking, nimbleness and resilience. We help build and constructively iterate teams that win, have fun and thrive.

Our Process:

everyday thinking

Case Study

Industrial Painting Company

The organization was mired in stale and habitual thinking, bogged down in the weeds of everyday operations and stuck in the past, resulting in long-standing stymied sales results. The leadership team was not accountable for owning the corporate strategy as their personal territory nor did leadership take on the responsibility to innovate.
