✓ The journey to building healthy teams starts where I meet with each individual team member to explore each members awareness and understanding of what the team is, it’s purpose, their role and their overall satisfaction with the current state of their performance, the teams’ performance, the leader, team members and function. This is done in an environment of confidentiality, trust, non-judgment and respect and facilitates a conversation that identifies the core values of the team, how they behave and treat one another and what is blocking them from being the high performing team they desire to be.
✓ This leads to discussing their assessment of how they are functioning, behaving and performing within the team structure and the areas they want to focus on and address to perform and function at the level desired so the team can accomplish its goals and objectives.
✓ The team members are all then brought together for a similar discussion with the focus on what the team is; their overall satisfaction with the current state of their performance, how they are treating one another and function; and the areas they want to focus on and address to perform , behave and function at the level desired as a team.This is done in an environment of honest, transparent, authentic, confidential, non-confrontational communication and is often co-facilitated with teams leader.
✓Through working in this manner, the individual and ultimately the team discover where they are “blocked” or “stuck” and how this impacts their individual and team performance. The next step is the development of the Action Plan and leadership structure necessary to address each of the items identified as areas of desired improvement and grow to being a stronger, healthier organization.
