A Team is more then a collection of individuals that meets periodically; a Team is more than people designated as leaders, brought together to talk about functional challenges; a Team is more than a group of people thrown at a problem, and expected to create a solution.
Teams are the essence of today’s organization. It is around high performance teams, high energy teams, high functioning teams that can coalesce around a higher purpose, and continually optimize performance by utilizing creativity, innovation, and diversity.
These teams are not fantasies, they are possibilities. They do exist!
With the appropriate infrastructure to build a team, with respect for diversity, with a focus on performance, innovation, and forward thinking, a group can become a team.
We focus first on the Strategic Leadership Team. With the infrastructure in place, the Team works on:
Strategic Leadership Teams by definition must be high energy, high performance, future-focused, collaborative networks… focusing on the whole, rather than the parts.
With the Strategic Leadership team in place, we work throughout the organization to build teams.
We use tool-driven methodologies to surface team needs, to identify the areas of work for a high performance team, to identify who on the team has a preference for this work, and to continually build the team with an eye toward high performance.
We at the Center For Life Cycle Sciences take on the toughest teams, the most hostile teams, the most nonchalant teams, and we help them develop into a coherent, focused, high performance team.
For insight into one of the tools we use, please take a look at the Team Management Profile at http://www.tms-americas.com/tms_assessments.cfm. This profile allows us to “see into” the eight areas of work for a high performance team, and to locate each team member, in terms of work preference, on the high performance team. We see how to leverage our existing assets, and to bring in new talent to ensure that the team is successful. For more information on the Team Management Profile, contact the CFLCS.
