Team Development

Some teams generate exceptional loyalty, commitment and drive. Others are paralysed by politics, negative emotions and wasted energy. Understanding and mastering the dynamics of team development is crucial if teams are to fulfil their potential and provide the anticipated benefits.

We don’t aim to ‘fix’ or ‘build’ a particular team at a particular moment in time. We work to create a deep awareness of the dynamics of people working together for collective success. We recognise that true team development focuses on individual action, feeling and accountability rather than on vague notions of ‘team’. We provide portable skills and learning for individuals, from Graduate Development to Leadership Development, to ensure that benefits are sustained even when the membership of a specific team changes. In a world populated by virtual, discontinuous and networked teams, this is more important than ever.

Alongside this we also offer a two-day Team Development Programme designed to build your teams capacity for effective action. Based at our unique venues in the Lake District they offer the perfect environment for your team to learn, develop, re-energise and refocus.

Team Development & Management business benefits

  • Team members who maintain their improved effectiveness in the face of difficulties and continue to develop
  • Sustainable improvements in performance. We align the changes to business outcomes, significantly contributing to both the short term and long term performance of the team, the capabilities of its members and the organisation to which it belongs.
  • Success that can be measured. We believe it is vital to agree clear success criteria with you at the outset so that subsequent evaluations are clear and focussed. We ensure that each team determines appropriate, challenging targets that will enable it to measure success. This process can be informed, shaped and measured by information from external sources such as the views of key stakeholders, team diagnostics questionnaires and 360˚ feedback from others in the business.
