Creating high performing teams lies in an organisation’s ability to unlock their people’s potential through shifting mindsets. When people develop a growth mindset, they begin to think differently, to really understand their individual strengths, talents, and abilities and to seek their own greatness.
The ripple effect of this is phenomenal on both performance and results at an individual, team level, and therefore for organisations as a whole.
Encouraging people to develop a growth mindset requires the existence of a healthy company culture, one which encourages people to have a voice, supports teams to embrace change, and has values which promote open communication, diversity, respect trust, and continual improvement, enabling people to work harmoniously together to bring the organisation’s vision to life.
To nurture a positive organisational culture and ensure psychological safety at the workplace, we provide a number of assessment and development solutions that are designed to be meaningful, memorable and motivational, including:
Cultural evaluations and debriefing
Cultural transformation facilitation
Psychological safety assessments
Culture-focused workshops and coaching
Long-term programmes which develop a culture of continuous learning
Our solutions blend performance consulting and training technology to develop learning solutions that help employees to develop values and behaviours that not only align with your organisation’s vision but inspire them to achieve it.
We support leaders and teams in learning how to:
Embrace Collaborative Open Communication
As organisations become more diverse, and as more teams work remotely or use hybrid solutions, good communication is a fundamental foundation for teamwork and collaboration. Moreover, it is a critical component of building strong relationships with both clients and suppliers when we interact in virtual environments. Simple strategies for improving communication amongst team members can have an incredibly positive impact on both productivity and morale.
Build Resilience and Manage High-stress Situations
High performing teams learn to identify and tap into the strengths and capabilities of the individuals within them. By doing so, these teams learn to work together, to lean on each other, to stretch each other and to solve problems which reduces stress and builds resilience.
Encourage Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity is one of the greatest strengths an organisation can have because, by its very nature, it brings different perspectives and approaches to problems and opportunities. However, many organisations encounter problems inadvertently caused by diversity such as conflict, poor communication, and misunderstandings to name a few. We help teams to build trust and respect so they can appreciate each other’s unique traits, experiences, and opinions and use these varied strengths to accomplish a common goal.
Accept and Seek Positive Change
It’s human nature to resist change because it is unfamiliar. And resisting change can hinder team performance. So, it makes sense to invest in helping teams to welcome change and learn to cope with the uncertainty it can bring. When teams are open to change, they become better at solving problems and seeking opportunities. At this time, with the business environment being heavily disrupted in unprecedented ways, organisations that have a strong culture of embracing change can quickly adapt, in any circumstances.
Reward and Recognise Team Efforts
Organisational cultures which reward and recognise team efforts can retain individuals for the long term. When people feel valued and included, they will go ‘the extra mile’ and this enhances organisational performance. Rewarding and recognising teams and individuals is essential for building a positive culture.
Increase Learning and Growth Opportunities
Developing a culture of continuous learning and growth provides people with opportunities to keep improving their knowledge, creativity and proficiency which gives them the ability to bring better ideas to the table. A culture of learning and growth also increases people’s confidence, which has positive repercussions overall.
Building Competent Leaders
Organisations which invest in their leaders reap the benefits. Good leaders have high levels of self- awareness, they inspire others and build confidence in those around them to move forward towards a common goal. This is increasingly important as we face these times of complex yet pivotal change.
We help organisations through performance consulting to optimise the performance of their employees across the entire organisation.
Our approach is founded in performance consulting which emphasises achieving clearly identified business goals through a range of strategies designed to shift mindsets, and build team coherence, which assists to develop a workplace culture that’s not only healthy, but harmonious and productive.
We collaborate with you to understand the culture and talent within your organisation and assist individuals and teams, at all levels, to develop a shared purpose, set of values and eliminate ways of working to deliver on your vision.
In these challenging and changing times, as organisations adapt to virtual working arrangements, and more online interaction with clients and customers, we also help organisations to ensure they can continue to retain solid cultural foundations which will continue to motivate and inspire their people’s performance.
