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?
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. See my new blog series here on Developing a Culture of Teaming.
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. We draw on the extensive research of Professors Amy Edmondson, Michael West, Peter Hawkins and others to help teams diagnose their current effectiveness, identify areas for improvement and develop the capacity to excel.
Could your teams be more effective?
