Team working skills

Talent managementRetention

Whether a team is newly formed or has been working together for a while, if they’re demonstrating unhealthy behaviours it’s time for them to press the ‘reset’ button and learn some team working skills.  

Conflicts between individuals and assumptions about roles, responsibilities and abilities are often the cause of dysfunctional teams. This lack of clarity breeds mistrust, which is the undoing of a successful goal achievement for any team.

There's often a corporate assumption that people who are excellent technically must also be good at working together. This assumption is proven incorrect time after time. There's no question of the importance of having a team with the hard skills and knowledge required to do the job, but behaviour is a critical element that also needs to be considered.

With our assessments, you can gain a deeper understanding of how your team behaves, which will help create an environment of understanding and enable effective team working skills that satisfy the preferences of all team members.

What makes an effective team?

Uncovering the behavioural and emotional preferences of individuals will empower teams to come to their own conclusions of how best to communicate, how to motivate employees and ultimately how to develop team working skills that will have the greatest positive influence on performance. Our Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) and Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire (TEIQue) can provide you with this information.

The PPA enables you to gain a deeper understanding of how your employees behave, how they like to communicate, their strengths and limitations and their motivators. The TEIQue is designed to tell you how well your people understand and manage their emotions, how well they interpret and deal with the emotions of others and how they use this knowledge to manage relationships.

Feedback is a gift!

Feedback helps people to improve and this is as true for teams as it is individuals.

Our Thomas 360 feedback tool is essential in helping people to identify their strengths and areas for development and in understanding how their behaviour is perceived across the business. By opening your team up to feedback from others, you will receive important recommendations that could help you take your team from good to great.

Maintaining success

A commitment to making individual and team improvements and changes that enhance performance and capitalise on strengths, will ensure your team is consistently working together as effectively and efficiently as possible.

This can be achieved by implementing training courses for your team, which will increase your chances of developing a high performing team by enhancing their soft skills.
