Team coaching, design and development

Building a successful team is about more than finding a group of people with the right mix of professional skills. Teams that are simply thrown together without much consideration for how team members will interact can struggle to ‘take off’ and fail to become effective. Stuck or slipping backwards, many teams don’t excel or deliver, and sadly never reach their full potential.

Thankfully, with the right expertise, teams can overcome these obstacles. teamGenie® ‘s team designteam development, and team coaching services are at hand to assist teams at all stages of their development.

The qualities for an effective team

Today’s teams are far more diverse, dispersed, digital, and dynamic. Teamwork has always been an essential element for successful enterprises, but with organisations now undergoing disruption and digitisation, it is more important than ever that employees can collaborate effectively across geographical sites, between business functions and within increasingly fluid organisational structures.

A team that works well together demonstrates key strengths:

  • Sense of purpose
  • Open communication
  • Trust and mutual respect
  • Shared leadership
  • Building on differences
  • Flexibility and adaptability

Building successful new teams

New teams form all the time – those that flourish rarely do so by chance. A deliberately designed team is the best approach for success. Moving from start-up to maturity, a team progresses through distinct stages along the way. Each stage has its own unique set of challenges, and if these aren’t worked through, they can stop teams from making headway, resulting in stagnation.

teamGenie®’s team design and team-building services help new groups set up quickly to form effective teams. Our science-based, innovative approach is tailored to teams at all stages of development. For existing teams, our team coaching services improve group task and relational processes. We identify sticking points and unblock them, allowing the team to progress.
