The Working Better Together Difference
Most team development consultants assert that they can enhance your teamâ™s performance. How many can demonstrate sustainability of that claim?
Without exception the teams we work with state how they have the Think.Act.TalkTM skills to close the gulf of Un-REAL Communication, Mediocrity, Failed Accountability, Lack of Intimacy and Trust. As well, they are loud about how our Sustainable Learning Tool (SLT)keeps them engaged and accountable to sustain working better together. When past-participants have questions, we are there to answer, as these teams have access to any of our coaches for on-going guidance and support.
We stay the course.
Working Better Together strongly
Finally aligned with A4Pâ™s training principle of â˜not an eventâ™ we ensure the stick-to-itive-ness through checking back with the team, eliminating any regression, and adding another, bigger block to stretch team development.
We teach the skills of working better together to create immensely profitable performance, and equip teams with the building blocks to continue their team growth journey.
Wonder If the Shoe Fits?
Consider This Story
Can you hear and see yourself in Wesleyâ™s story?
Wesley, the CIO of a video production company, is challenged to get his team focused on the â˜rightâ™ stuff. While his team works very hard, they seem to lack the alignment and direction that will catapult them into the levels of success that they should and can aspire to reach. They seem to be hindered by their inability to create intimate relationships with their peer members. While not entirely sure of all the nuances that are impacting their effectiveness, Wesley suspects that it is due to their need to ACT with accountability and to TALK to one another in REAL ways - they just need the secret formula for team alignment.
He wonders how he can engage them to THINK in radical ways, while, at the same time, making emphatic decisions by asking profound business questions. Sure that if he could solve some of these issues theyâ™d be able to run profitable meetings that were timely and targeted with the ability to cascade a strong â˜One Voiceâ™ message to their teams. He wants them to be extraordinary and produce profitable results, harnessing Team Survival Tactics.
Faced with these challenges, Wesley wonders if his team feels the same. He is curious how his perceptions compare to those of his team and would like to measure them, and if needed, take action.
Overall, he wants them to be all that they can be, he seeks to provide them with the foundational building blocks that will cause them to thrive, deliver on their goals and become profitable in every way.
