Build a Winning Team

“A team is not a group of people who work together. A team is a group of people who trust each other” - Simon Sinek

Do you want to take your team to a different level of engagement and performance?

You are a manager in a petfood or a veterinary pharmaceutical company. You have a team of highly competent individuals, but you may feel that as a group they are not performing at their best. Even a company full of A-players won't succeed if those individuals don't have the ability to work well together.

Your team may be underperforming, or experiencing communication breakdown from time to time. Maybe team members are wary of taking risks, concerned that colleagues will embarrass or punish them for admitting a mistake, asking a question, or offering a new idea. Add to that people’s different working styles and points of view, and working harmoniously can be a real challenge.

Recent research shows that key to a team's effectiveness is trust. Who is on the team matters less than how the team works together.

“Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence win championships” says Michael Jordan.

Great teams thrive on trust! As a manager you should be asking how to make that happen. A lot depends on creating a safe environment in which people feel valued and respected, and which allows sharing and experimentation.

Perhaps you have tried different approaches in the past, but feel you now need professional support in helping your team. This is why I created the Build a Winning Team Programme.

Objectives of the Programme

“Whether you’re on a sports team, in an office or a member of a family, if you can’t trust one another there’s going to be trouble.” – Steven Covey

A team is a living, dynamic entity with its own personality, vision, rules and blind spots. Individual performance depends on the team environment. Just because one or more individuals outperform doesn’t mean the team will perform exceptionally well overall. In fact, you may find just the opposite.

The Build a Winning Team Programme is primarily aimed at:

  • • Fostering genuine connections between team members and encouraging deeper discussions.
  • • Engendering a culture of collaboration and teamwork.
  • • Creating a deeper sense of ownership for the business and strong feelings of involvement and commitment.
  • • Building personal skills such as communication, problem-solving and conflict resolution.
  • • Improving personal and team performance.
Businesses with high levels of trust and engagement have higher levels of what drives success: customer satisfaction, high productivity and business profitability.

What will happen in this Programme?

“Great teams consist of individuals who have learned to trust each other. Over time, they have discovered each other’s strengths and weaknesses, enabling them to play as a coordinated whole.” - Amy Edmondson

This programme consists of an interactive workshop followed by a number of group coaching sessions. The workshop includes engaging interactive exercises that help participants relax and connect with each other. Fun activities encourage people to see each other in a different light by allowing them to connect in a different setting. The members of your team are asked to think about the implications of these activities at their workplace.

Team bonding activities improve teamwork, communication, problem-solving, and conflict resolution. After completing team-building activities, employees better understand each other’s strengths, weaknesses and interests. This understanding will help them work even better together, something vital for any business.

In some cases, a number of face to face or virtual team coaching sessions after the workshop is recommended. This may be particularly important if:

  • • a new team is being formed and needs to deliver results immediately.
  • • a team is not working as effectively as it could, and the team leader and team members agree that they want to do better.
  • • a long-established team has lost its initial enthusiasm and wants to regain it.

Team coaching applies the principles of coaching to a larger group. It enables the team to:
  • • Create an environment of emotional safety in which to build deeper levels of trust and higher quality of collaboration.
  • • Recognize and value the contributions each member can make when at their best.
  • • Improve the effectiveness of communication among team members and with customers.
  • • Gain greater clarity and a common purpose around priorities – what’s most important for the team to achieve together.
  • • Manage the potential for conflict constructively.

Results you can expect

The programme gives you the tools and insights you need to communicate more effectively with everyone on your team. The exercises facilitate team bonding by fostering genuine connections and deeper discussions.

Participants walk away from our sessions with:

  • • Increased appreciation of each and every team member.
