Team Effectiveness

Placeholder Image

Elevate Team Intelligence & Productivity

Team challenges often manifest in conflict and a failure to make progress. Teams don’t often understand the root causes for those issues or how to work together to prevent them. We employ our Team Performance System not only to educate teams, but to provide the practices needed for improvement. From a single team to organization-wide implementation, we can help co-located or virtual teams:

  • build mutual regard
  • reduce conflict
  • align around priorities and purpose
  • make decisions
  • clarify multi-function work processes
  • improve overall communication 

The Three Key Components of The Grove’s Team Performance System

The Model 

Gain Understanding of How and Why Teams Succeed or Falter

The Drexler/Sibbet Team Performance Model® illustrates the necessary stages involved in both creating and sustaining successful teams. It provides a common organization-wide framework for teaming across functions, cultures, and distances.

The Survey 

Assess Team Strengths and Opportunities for Growth

Organizations use The Grove’s Team Performance Survey™ as a tool for assessing a team’s perceptions about itself. The resulting report sparks discussions among team members and helps them plan a path for developing team effectiveness.

Visual Team Practices

Resolve Team Issues With Grove Best Practices

With the output from the Survey, teams then choose from The Grove’s set of best practices. We offer more than 80 practices, keyed to the stages of the Model, to help team leaders develop a “playbook” in response to common team challenges.

 

How To Get Started

Many of our clients get their first introduction to the Team Performance System by engaging one of our consultants to work with a team or by taking one of our workshops. Choose your own approach.

Team Performance Consulting

Team start-ups and team improvement meetings are excellent opportunities to introduce the Team Performance System. Our consultants work with team leaders, administer the Survey and interpret the results, recommending ways to improve teamwork. We facilitate teams at any scale and level, both in person and virtually: 

  • Individual teams
  • Organization-wide
  • Senior leadership
  • Cross-boundary work groups

Team Tools Websites

We tailor a library of tools and best practices from our extensive collection and from your organization’s tried-and-true methods. The website can be housed behind your firewall and provides a shared teaming framework for your organization.

“We have applied the Team Performance Model and graphic facilitation tools and processes to three different teams within our organization since we received our training from The Grove. These teams were in different parts of our business (both manufacturing and product development) and had very different objectives and team member skill sets. In each case, the teams performed effectively and the team members were highly motivated throughout the process.”
