Working With Management And Senior Executive Teams To Build Capacity
Effectively Resolving The Root Causes Of Team Performance Issues While Strengthening Trust and Working Relationships
Most work is now being done by teams and yet these same teams are faced with constant changes: members coming and going; limited resources; changing goals and deadlines; not being co-located; organizational restructuring etc. The pace and pressure can be unrelenting. As a result, the quality of work products and relationships can suffer and processes break down.
Being on a struggling team can be a painful and stressful experience. Trying to lead a team facing constant change can be like trying to build an airplane while it’s in flight! Conflict can emerge, clarity wanes, individual and team resilience takes a hit and results plummet. Ultimately it takes longer and becomes more painful to complete work. There seems like no easy solution.
At Change Essentials we have spent years strengthening team capacity working with management and senior executive teams who are:
- Starting up to get them off the ground in the right way.
- In mid flight and just need a solid tune up.
- Struggling to deal with change effectively.
We don’t focus on “feel good” flash in the pan team building events that serve as a momentary salve and then fade into nothingness. Each team is different so Change Essentials’ support flexes to meet that team’s unique needs. We focus on identifying and resolving the root causes of the issues the team is experiencing so that we can increase team effectiveness, build skills and capacity, and create change that lasts.
Recognizing that team development is a process, we deliver our team coaching and consulting services over time. We use proven team effectiveness models that understand complex team dynamics and focus on getting work results that matter to teams. We tailor our work seeking to understand the specific work of the team while strengthening relationships, team cohesion, team processes and desired outcomes.
