Goals & Strategies: Adapting Familiar Tools for a Disruptive World

August 28th, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PDT

Somewhere in the corporate archives is a bookshelf loaded with 3-ring binders labelled, “Five Year Plans”. We find it amusing that there was a time when thoughtful management could plan with reasonable confidence a stable business and marketplace extending that far into the future. Today’s teams need the adaptability, flexibility, and resilience to alter course quickly as the winds of business-needs change abruptly. The core skills for setting goals to achieve strategic success are still relevant; they just need an…

​It’s safe to say we are all on the same page with this: alignment plays an extremely important role in team effectiveness. ​​It’s often most visible on teams in vertical alignment and assumed or overlooked on the horizontal – until the impact of misalignment hits the fan. Experience shows it’s not always easy for teams to find alignment. Team members come from different, often strongly held points of view. In this webinar, you'll learn how to help teams find common…

Optimism: Overlooked, Underappreciated & Powerful

November 20th, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PST

Optimism. It’s so much more than a smiley-face emoji. It’s one of the strongest factors that define high performing teams. For good reason. Any team can be positive when things are going well. When things are falling apart and tensions are high, optimistic teams are resilient, proactive and creative because they believe, “we can find a way”. Optimism is an attitude and mindset. It is built through experience, especially success when the storm blocks out the sun and the waves…

Resources: Where Creativity & Opportunity Intersect

December 18th, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PST

Lack of sufficient resources is a chronic complaint on teams. There’s never enough time, budget or people to accomplish everything that’s expected. They have a point. There isn’t. In fact, there is a great deal that teams don’t have control over when it comes to resources. The desired shift for high performing teams is toward a mindset that focuses less on what’s missing and more on what’s available. The constraint that comes with insufficient resources can be the cause for…

Constructive Interaction: When Getting Messy Pays Dividends

January 22nd @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PST

Conflict on teams is normal. It’s often a sign that people care about the process or the results. Disagreement, heated debate, are signs of passion and conviction—qualities of engaged teams. What is also true: avoiding conflict is also normal and unattended conflict, over time, is toxic to teams. The key for those of us who work with teams is to create a safe, supportive, and empowered environment for the benefit of the team. In the end, well-managed team conflict pays…

Trust: Making It Real on Teams

February 19th @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PST

In 2020 we continue our focus on the 14 TCI Team Performance Indicators from the team effectiveness model. This month we explore “Trust”. “Trust is an issue on our team”. We hear that over and over in our early discovery work with teams. Lack of trust stifles creativity and undermines engagement. It becomes personal and breeds a toxic atmosphere. It doesn’t have to be that way. There are ways to turn everyday conversation and action into building that trust without…

System Aware: Making the Invisible, Visible

March 19th @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PDT

A team is more than a collection of individual parts. Teams have personalities, history and a story that goes with it, unique beliefs and values. More than that, teams create distinct rules of behavior that team members learn by observation or by subtle reward or punishment. Most of the time, teams are unaware of their “teamness” and its impact on team performance. To be effective as a team coach one must be able to see and hear below the surface…

Tuned In: A Core Team Coaching Competency That Can’t Be Ignored

May 20th @ 8:00 am - 9:15 am PDT

Teams are always sending signals. And as those signals come in, in different ways, and at different times we're often flooded with information. These signals are sometimes loud and obvious – filled with emotion and concern. And at other times they are quiet and almost invisible. As team coaches, we must practice the skill of tuning in to all these signals and helping make sure that they are received, understood, and used by the teams with whom we work. Because…

The Differences Between Individual & Team Coaching

June 17th @ 8:00 am - 9:15 am PDT

Individual coaching as an industry has finally started to come of age, with high support for the basic idea of coaching in some form in nearly all larger and many smaller organizations. However – “team coaching” is still a relatively new and challenging idea for many teams out there to say nothing of the leaders who might be interested in hiring a team coach to help their team. And this is true despite the ROI of Team coaching often far…
