"When we meet as a team, you don’t see hidden agendas. You see team members cutting straight to afrank discussion of issues, solutions, and execution.  There’s less “What about me?” and “How does this affect my area?”…You also see greater openness and comfort in the team giving me feedback, less issue avoidance, faster decision making."[Commenting on results the Guttman process helped to achieve.]

"There was less need for top-down decision making and no infighting.  Also, when issues come up they’re dealt with more rapidly by team members, without involving me.  The speed of decision making and issue resolution is much faster."  [Commenting on results the Guttman process helped to achieve.]

Accelerating Team Performance - Corporate

Accelerating Team Performance

In today’s organizations, work gets done through teams. Unless team members are aligned, accountable for one another’s success, fully engaged, and competent to act, you are not likely to succeed. But no team is capable of operating at peak performance from Day One, though you can accelerate the process.

This highly intensive and interactive two-day program is exclusively for intact teams and is designed to quickly move your team along the path to high performance. Team members will learn to diagnose their team’s behavior through mastery of the “Team Development Wheel.”

This will enable them to accurately assess the team’s “as is,” identify the blockers preventing them from attaining peak performance, and develop a shared understanding of—and commitment to—a game-changing strategy for team success.

This is a hands-on program, dealing with both structured exercises and “live” team issues. Participants will to begin redefine their business relationships and ways of working together individually and as a team.
