Building a Culture for Team Success

Great teams are the building blocks of successful organisations. Highly cohesive teams that appreciate and celebrate each other’s strengths and differences have greater teamwork skills, productivity, and engagement at work.

Would you describe your team as highly cohesive?

Create clear and practical action plans
Decrease absence and turnover
Drive team performance and results

Do your teams celebrate each other’s differences or do these create conflict?

While diverse teams are more productive and perform better, they are also more likely to experience intra-team conflict and communication barriers in the workplace.

• Has team culture tanked?
• Wondering how to work across cultures, languages, and generations?
• Need more trust and respect in your teams?
• Intra-team conflicts stalling progress and results?
• Teams lacking motivation, direction, or alignment?
• Want to take your teams from good to great?

When team culture and relationships break down, so do many of the fundamental things for team success.

Getting to the heart of what’s affecting their performance can help.

Solve the challenges of Team Effectiveness with The Colour

Cut your stress in half

Managing a team can be full-on without having to play peacekeeper or find solutions to everyone’s problems. When teams understand and appreciate each other’s differences, it leads to less conflict, greater collaboration, and better problem-solving.

Remove communication barriers and silos

Whether it is mixed generations, cultures, or different communication styles, these differences can become a barrier to effective communication and teamwork. We will provide your team with a common language to help enhance communication and avoid misunderstandings.

Create teams people love to be a part of

By identifying and solving team challenges and issues and creating an environment where individuals’ strengths and differences are understood and valued, your absences and turnover will plummet. You’ll also attract higher quality people to your teams.

Hit your team targets and goals

Without a clear direction, purpose, or vision, a team can’t utilise the unique power of its individuals’ strengths or achieve the team’s collective potential. We will work with you to get your team aligned with team priorities, so you achieve your goals.

Make hybrid or remote work, work

Remote communications between teams such as email, Zoom, and teleconferences can be a minefield of potential conflict. Gain new mutual respect and trust within your team that transcends physical and virtual borders.

Discovering Team Effectiveness improves the way your people work together in a rapidly changing world.

Here’s how we do it

Starting with self-and-other-awareness, we help each team member understand their personal style of work, how their colleagues prefer to work, and how these individual and team preferences affect the team dynamic and overall performance. This makes the learning uniquely personal and applicable to the real world, right from the start.

We help teams:

• Adopt a common language.
• Understand the team’s strengths and potential areas of development.
• Build team direction, purpose, and vision.
• Break down interpersonal barriers and navigate conflict

So they can:

• Diagnose and confront problems.
• Create clear and actionable plans that accelerate the team’s progress.
• Continue to operate, learn, and continuously improve collectively.
• Create a high performing culture of team success.

Who’s it for?

• Newly formed or recently merged teams
• Teams who lack direction, purpose, or vision
• Effective teams who want to become high performing
• Teams where interpersonal issues are a barrier to effectiveness

How it works

This programme is tailored to your specific requirements and delivered through a combination of personal and team performance diagnostics, team workshops, and facilitated discussions. Workshops and facilitated sessions can be delivered in-person or via a virtual format. Ongoing support and resources will be provided to help you embed the learnings into your organisation.
