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.

Thank you Aileen for your coaching and wisdom. Your coaching style is very responsive, and you have a great balance of theoretical information that is backed up with practical advice. You have a good range of approaches to help work through a situation - from the very practical to the more quirky, but they all help guide the individual to the right answer. I appreciated that you not only took the coach role but on occasions you were the instructor - and that you clarified each time you stepped between those roles. I would recommend you to leaders and executives at any level in the organization.
