In 2013, research conducted by EY1 revealed that almost 9 out of 10 executives agreed that the problems they were facing were so complex that teams were going to be integral to creating impactful solutions. Fast forward eight years and we believe it would be fair to say that the ‘problems’ we face are no less complex than before. In fact, they have likely multiplied in their significance, begging the question ‘are teams now more important than ever before?’
Over the course of twenty-five years working with managers, leaders and individuals, the issues within teams have remained constant; whether it’s ‘how do I get my team to work more collaboratively?’ or ‘how can we get better results?’ or ‘how do I manage the conflict that is crippling my team?’ We have no doubt that you could also think of a further list of issues that arise in teams, undermining business critical performance metrics – both the hard and the soft.
This white paper examines what it takes to build trust in teams and how a
collective growth mindset is not only good for the individual, but the team as a whole. It examines the role of leadership in creating the right environment, culture and behaviours – creating a followership towards performance.
Without the support and expertise of facilitators and an external lens, it is often hard for leaders and managers to not only identify those issues that are having the biggest impact, but also tackle them. This white paper will give some understanding to these issues, as well as tried and tested methodologies to prevent them from happening time and time again (or at least deal with them when they do happen).
If you have any thoughts on this white paper or would like to discuss any of the issues raised in it, do get in touch.
All the best,
Caroline and Adam.
