Breakthrough Team Strategy & Alignment
Candeo Partners discusses core components of elevating an organization’s performance. Usually, a VP or above and their leadership team have a strategic imperative that either is 1) not on track to deliver required results; requires new actions and new ways of thinking; or 2) the team is delivering what the leader has envisioned, take it to the next level, to do something that’s never been done before.
All of our teamwork is aligned with a sponsoring leader. We spend time to understand their vision, strategic objectives and challenges. We apply our breakthrough thinking models in these discussions and align on desired outcomes for the team and the offer different ways to work with the team to accomplish these outcomes.
We guide leaders with a vision to bring a new level of inspiration and innovation, lead their people to create a breakthrough out of a crisis, when they’re in trouble, when their back is up against the wall. It involves taking new actions and new ways of thinking to produce breakthrough results in leadership teams.
Building High Performing Teams
On a high performing team, communication flows freely and no one is worried about stepping on each other’s toes. More importantly, everyone is committed to the same outcome. Many times, it’s a scenario where there may be late nights and people working overtime, but you’re proud of the end result and proud of the people you’re working with. And it’s worth it. Each person understands what they’re doing and they are in sync, even though there may be some overlapping roles.
On teams that are not high performing, it’s unclear who is doing what, results are slow, rework is often needed, there’s difficulty communicating with some people more than others, and you can’t wait for the project to be over. It feels like drudgery!
So, how do you create a high performing team? There actually is a science behind it and it is replicable. When certain factors are in place, you can predict with confidence that a team will reach peak performance. On the flip side, when one or more of these factors are missing or low, the team will struggle and results will be inconsistent.Candeo Partners shows you how to assess whether or not your team will perform and what to do to have them deliver based on the Six Factors for High Performing Teams.
