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
align around priorities and purpose
clarify multi-function work processes
improve overall communication
The Three Key Components of The Grove’s Team Performance System
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.
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:
Cross-boundary work groups
Team Performance Workshop
Attend a public Team Performance workshop or have The Grove run a workshop within your organization, virtually or in person. You will learn essential team practices and visual tools and be certified to use The Grove’s Team Performance Survey.
How To Install The Team Performance System in Your Organization
For those clients who have experienced the effectiveness of The Team Performance System and want to roll it out to multiple teams, we offer several options for a flexible and scalable implementation.
The Grove can train your internal human-resources or learning-and-development staff to offer the Team Performance workshop to your teams and leaders. This is a cost-effective way to bring Team Performance into your organization.
The Grove has a variety of licensing offerings, including licensing the Team Performance Survey, best practices, as well as on-site print licensing for select Grove products. Select from a range of do-it-yourself products at Grove Tools.
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.”
