Developing Teams

Are you tolerating team performance that does not meet your expectations?

Would having more focus, alignment and clarity in your team make a difference to your team’s performance?

Do you need greater engagement levels in your team? 

The most effective way to achieve optimal performance is to go to the root cause of what’s holding you and your team back. Once you have identified and solved the root problem, everything changes in the way your team communicates and operates, things get done and results are achieved with previously unimaginable ease.

The problem is most leaders and teams don’t go deep enough to reach the true root cause in the way of achieving extraordinary outcomes. Most leaders focus on surface solutions; they may reorganise again, set new priorities, start new initiatives, or communicate their goals more forcefully. None of these solve the root causes of sub-standard performance and can thus only have limited effect.


Building effective teams is hard

That’s why so many leaders share with us the following frustrations:

1Many employees - even at senior levels - lack the ability to build and participate in teams effectively.
2Interpersonal dynamics create lots of friction and hassles that are time consuming and challenging to overcome.
3It is rare that team members know how to set expectations and create engagement in ways that get great results while strengthening relationships.

I would most definitely recommend the scavenger hunt, (and I have been) and I'd give it a score of 5. It was well run and well organised. The hunt itself was difficult enough that there was a little bit of a challenge but not so hard that we were all at a loss, and having Aileen there in case we got too stuck was great. My only disappointment was that it was too short! All the guests were raving about how great it was and I was even told by a few that it was the best hens they've ever been to.

Hopefully, that answers your questions well enough. I am so grateful for Aileen and all her help and hardwork. Trying to organise a hens from the other side of the country was going to be difficult enough but Aileen just made it so easy. It was just an amazing day, we had so much fun and I couldn't have asked for it to be better. You're more than welcome to use my response as testimonial. I couldn't rate the experience high enough!
