" ... a unique blend of business experience, practical psychology, coach, confidant ... "
-- Doug Woods, The Association For Manufacturing Technology (McClean, VA)
Your team doesn't work well together. Yes, they're a great group of people - bright, talented, and energetic. But people aren't pulling together. And in the end, the whole is less than the sum of its parts.
TSG Senior Team Development programs address this problem and lead to higher performing senior level teams.
How the Process Works
Dr. Jim begins with the premise that there's a difference between a group and a team.
A group is a collection of people brought together for a common purpose. That purpose is seen as the driver to get them to work together.
A team is a group of people with a common purpose and method for working together to accomplish that purpose. People know their roles. They know how and when to communicate with each other. They've learned how to solve problems with each other - said plainly, they know how to work together.
Dr. Jim leverages his business and psychological expertise to transform your senior group into a high-functioning senior team using the following steps:
- Pinpoint the team's strengths, weaknesses, and improvement opportunities using a TSG Senior Team Assessment, including the follow-up retreat process. This will yield an action change plan.
- Follow the action change plan - which includes the senior team learning to work in a participative, high communication, high cooperation manner. For the best results, senior team development meetings are held every two weeks.
- Measure the progress of the senior team against the action change plan, including determining the relative contribution and distraction of each senior executive on the team. Fine tune the action change plan based upon the progress achieved.
After completing this process, TSG may recommend using the same process on the next layer of management below the senior level team. Continuing some form of this method down through the organization ensures that the culture becomes consistent from top to bottom.
The result of developing your senior team is a consistent and participatory culture that brings you the highest organization-wide productivity and profitability based upon new abilities to be individually accountable while also working together as a team.
