Lifting Team Performance

The 5 challenges for High Performing Teams

The pressure on teams is rising! We expect teams to be hubs of innovation, problem solving and visioning. And if team expectations rise…so should the social/business architecture and maturity of teams. Only, this doesn’t happen overnight! It requires slow thinking (stepping out of the daily rush), and a clear framework on how to discuss the functioning of the team. Would a well-organized X-ray of teams not be a virtue for business?

Your 5 burning questions?
— Question 1 —
How can I organize a team time-out that matters, i.e. that doesn’t end up in walking in circles?
— Question 2 —
How can I/we judge the maturity of the team and take appropriate action to step up?
— Question 3 —
What drives performance in the team, and what levers can we use to become more effective as a team?
— Question 4 —
What is my role as a team leader/ coordinator? How can I influence the development of the team?
— Question 5 —
What’s new in team organization? What are new practices in developing teams?

“Teams today are no longer just part in a chain. They are micro-entreprises and therefore need to be developed as such.”
