Effective Teamworking

Our collective leadership work with teams spans professional, managerial, support services, clinical, multi-disciplinary, executive, board-level, cross-organisational and system-wide teams.

Some of us belong to a core team, many of us work across multiple teams and increasingly, work gets done across networks of people, groups and organisations.

There are well-established factors which help teams to do their very best work.

How do we agree on our shared purpose? How do we combine our respective skills? How do we discuss things we disagree on? How do we respond when something goes wrong? How do we listen and communicate together? How do we challenge each other? How do we use our meeting time? How do we raise concerns? And address them? How do we show care and compassion in our work? How do we keep focused on our shared priorities when there are so many pressures?

This was really critical work in building the leadership team. Jeanne’s work with us has helped us to talk honestly, better understand each other’s priorities, and helped get rid of the elephant in the room.
— Head of Service

For people whose work moves between and across teams, ‘teaming’ mindsets and approaches are linked to getting the best out of collective work, whenever and wherever it happens.

Impact4 draws on a robust evidence base, practical tools and wide experience to enable people to ‘team’ together as effectively as possible.

Our work with teams spans professional, managerial, support services, clinical, multi-disciplinary, executive, board-level, cross-organisational and system-wide teams. As an Associate of Aston OD, Jeanne Hardacre draws on the extensive research work of Professor Michael West to help teams diagnose their current effectiveness, identify areas for improvement and develop the capacity to excel.

Since our work with Jeanne, I feel more able to contribute to the executive agenda as we forge our new identity as a team. It has deepened my sense of trust and promoted a more positive working climate at executive level.

We are now working more collaboratively and collectively to address the needs of the Division as a whole. Building on this we have moved forward with a common purpose and shared values.
