Investing in Teams

There is enormous power in team-working. That synergistic, collaborative way of working where suddenly the sum is much greater than its parts. 1 + 1 = 5 so to speak and yet stories abound of teams, who on paper should produce outstanding results and yet when you look at how they work, 1 + 1 = 1.

Understanding the key ingredients for great teamwork and utilising that understanding to build high performance, are core skills for all team leaders. Working on teamwork shouldn’t simply be left to the formation of new teams. Those that have worked together for some time can fall into patterns of behaviour that limit the team’s overall success. Taking time to re-establish what makes a good team great, where the team is heading and regaining a commitment from all, can revitalise a team and transform their performance.

Lemontree can help “skill up” new team leaders, work with newly formed teams or assist existing intact teams in rethinking their potential and performance.

  • Create sharper, clearer focus on achieving team goals: Teams who have spent time investing in their development have a laser like focus, from each team member on what needs to be achieved, and how to get there. With the knowledge that everyone involved is committed 100%.
  • Develop a powerful sense of team identity: People don’t work for companies, they work for people. If we want to get the best from our people and retain our key talent, it is crucial to give people a sense of belonging and purpose.

Our workshops are tailored for each individual team, specifically working on the areas of importance for them.
