Team development

In Workforce

Great teams are the foundation of great organisations. We help teams become more empowered by overcoming obstacles and barriers, and finding new, improved ways of working.

Our scalable team development programmes give your teams a competitive edge by overcoming obstacles and barriers and finding newly established ways of working at a high level of performance.

Team development journeys at every level

Whether your team is newly formed, has a high employee turnover, or you want to create a high-performance culture, we can provide a bespoke team development service through a range of solutions and learning options which are available across all levels.

  • Executive teams

    Executive teams are both functional and enterprise leaders. We can support you to establish your purpose and common goals, and speak with ‘one voice’.

  • Virtual teams

    Whether your virtual team is long-established or newly created, we help you navigate challenges, such as leadership, communication and process.

  • Newly-formed teams

    We help new teams establish team dynamics and ways of working that promote high-performance from the start.

Our approach to team development

Our proven approach to building high-performing teams focuses on developing a shared understanding of what this means throughout organisations then turning this knowledge into practice.

From face-to-face delivery, through to virtual sessions and fully digital solutions, we provide a range of scalable approaches to take your teams beyond performance:

  • Team development journeys: Our High-Performing Teams (HPT) diagnostic profiles provides data on team strengths and development areas against the factors that drive high-performance. Team performance is then developed through a series of facilitated sessions to improve team performance.
  • Team4 Practitioner: We can develop in-house practitioners to help scale and support team performance development. Accredited practitioners can access our HPT diagnostic, get ready-made session designs and facilitation guides on 16 key topics (such as engagement, trust, leadership and resilience) and receive ongoing practitioner support.
  • Team4: Whether co-located, virtual or hybrid, Team4 is a self-serve digital tool that empowers your team leaders to develop high-performing teams, creating a common language through scalable development. Team4 also provides a consistent approach to measuring team performance across your organisation.

We focus on developing five key elements that create high-performing teams.

  • Team mind

    Refers to the ‘shared thinking’ within the team. In high-performing teams, members know how their team works best together. They are able to read new situations and apply existing knowledge. To keep improving, teams need to learn and, and just like individuals, a team’s ‘mind’ needs to be stretched.

  • Team emotion

    How team members feel about each other, and their team as a whole. High-performing teams have high levels of mutual trust. They feel fully engaged with the team, successfully resolve conflict and make superior decisions as a result of capitalising on knowledge held by all team members.

  • Team process

    Describes what the team does that allows them to continuously adapt and perform at a high level. This is despite changes in the internal and external environment. High-performing teams effectively share information, distribute workload, and anticipate the needs and actions of other team members.

  • Team leadership

    Refers to the formal and informal leadership capabilities within the team. In high-performing teams, leadership responsibility shifts from formal leaders to informal leaders according to the task and skills of team members. Team Leadership captures the vision, support and challenge provided.

  • Team edge

    The team’s ability to perform under pressure. Resilient teams can perform in the most difficult circumstances by remaining collectively confident, focused, determined and controlled under pressure. These teams build on positive momentum or change direction when the team is in a downward spiral.
