It is very rare that a team can become high performing without careful thought, planning and ongoing effort.

Without doing the difficult, collective work of understanding context, creating clarity, building connection, fostering collaboration and galvanising commitment, teams simply don’t live up to their potential.

In fact, they often devolve into chaos and dysfunction. High performing teams simply don’t happen by accident.

This is all the more important for executive and senior leadership teams as the rest of the organisation looks to this team for inspiration, direction and confidence.

We help senior teams do their most important yet usually most neglected work: working on the team itself.

The Teams That Work™ model to the right is how we think about the continuous improvement loop that is necessary to ensure a team becomes and stays high performing. There is important work to be done at each of the six stages.
