Teams make up and define organisations, but many fail to achieve their potential and some verge on dysfunctional. But some teams manage to raise their performance to another level and maintain it.
How can you ensure your teams are utilising individual and collective strengths to drive up performance, creating a contagious energy that will flow through a team?
High performing teams set a standard of excellence and know each other’s strengths to help them achieve their goals. Each team member identifies and masters their own strengths and together they share with others, to develop the people around them and, nurture peak performance.
As well as figuring out how best to deploy their individual and collective strengths, the most effective teams go further. These teams identify the strengths that can derail them when they go ‘into overdrive’. They pinpoint the areas that drain them. Then they make a plan to actively manage these risks.
Teams can avoid risks with these four ways to ensure team success.
A strengths development programme will build awareness of strengths and overdrive risks, that your teams will find insightful and immediately relevant in the way they work together and deliver results.
A team’s habits make up its culture. Good disciplines and productive habits maximise strengths and minimise their risk areas. Good team habits include, amongst others constructive feedback, providing an open forum for debate and discussion without judgement and teams that are committed to a purpose.
