High Performance Teams
Are your teams high performing and capable of delivering your organisation’s objectives?
Teams are where the detailed planning gets done and where the work happens. Teams need their own strategic clarity with a mission and a team business plan. The business plan is broken down into Team Business Plan Objectives which are the focus of the teams activity. Teams are like a business within the business and have some autonomy to get on with the job they have been created for.
Objectives are assigned to a team, but the accountability and performance is shared by the team. The team can also create its own detailed objectives that are strategically aligned with the organisation
Teams also need an established modus operandi, that is, how to operate in terms of decision making, communication and the role of each team member.
Progress to team objectives is measured regularly through Team Pulse Checks and is visible to all team members, with each person being assessed on both the success of the team and their contribution to the team.

Social capital comes from psychological safety and trust, shared identity, norms and values, and deep connections that build collaboration, innovation, learning and wellbeing. With hybrid work mush of this now needs to done in an online environment.
