Team Development


Improve the Way People Work Together

How We Work With You

We look closely at how effectively your people are working together, and at the structures that underlie these relationships.  We then help you align activities and efforts towards meeting business goals. Each programme is tailored for your business, and is likely to include facilitated discussions with team members, plus small group training and individual mentoring.

A typical Team Effectiveness programme covers the following areas:

Clarifying Roles and Responsibilities

In a growing company, people and teams tend to collect responsibilities haphazardly as and when the need arises. And as roles change, the skills and enthusiasms for which people were recruited in the first place can get forgotten.  Job roles often become increasingly disjointed, inefficiencies creep in, and people become less and less satisfied with the way they spend their day.

We work with the management team to clarify what roles and responsibilities exist and how you share them out between you.  As we tie down the detail of who does what and how it all fits together, opportunities for more effective ways of working often emerge very quickly.

Specific outcomes here include:

  • An organisation chart based on activities rather than job titles.
  • Job descriptions that make sense to both the manager and employee.
  • Shared knowledge of how to create, maintain and use job descriptions.
  • Improved work flow. 
  • More effective task allocation.

When you have the right people in the right place, not only do you improve productivity, you also see a happier and more motivated workforce.

Embracing Change

Success in business these days depends on being able to quickly change and adapt to new circumstances.  And it’s an area where small businesses have a real opportunity to outpace larger competitors, who face far greater obstacles in making significant changes.

Working closely with you and your team, we explore attitudes to change, consider when and why change is necessary, and show you how to focus on the opportunities it presents rather than the difficulties.

Embrace the need to change, and you will be in a strong position to survive and prosper through challenges that are thrust upon you as well as the changes you plan for.

Aligning Business and Individual Goals

Does every member of your staff know your goals for the business?  If they do, do they really understand how they can help achieve them?

We show you how to give people and teams the clear focus that’s essential for effectiveness and growth and help you to create individual targets that link directly to overall business strategy. You can then be sure everyone is working on tasks that drive your business forward, rather than choosing their own priorities for action.

Our Team Effectiveness programmes are all about helping you create the conditions in which teams can flourish. When you rationalise roles and responsibilities and align them with strategic goals, you’re well on the way to building a genuinely motivated and productive team that works together to achieve your vision.Could it be Time to Review your Business Processes?
