When a team functions effectively its impact can be powerful and far-reaching. However for a team to be effective it not only needs a shared purpose and clear goals it needs to pay attention to the relationships within it and the climate it creates.
A whole host of factors contribute to effective team functioning. Team members need to be skilled at understanding, managing and articulating their own emotions (Emotional Intelligence), as well being able to accurately read others’ emotions and empathise (Social Intelligence). In addition, for it to work collaboratively it needs to become aware of its own identity as a relationship system and be able to work skilfully with the emotional aspects of the whole team. It also needs to be aware of the relationship it has with those it interacts with outside of the team and the impact of its actions with the wider system. (Systems Intelligence).
We work with a diverse range of teams and relationship systems from HM Prisons, the NHS and not-for-profit organisations to residential communities and private sector organisations.
All our interventions start with an in-depth diagnosis of your team system to understand your strengths, challenges and needs. We pride ourselves of creating a safe environment that builds trust and enhances learning. Drawing on a range of powerful tools and techniques we work with your system to enable it to become more aware of the complex dynamics that underpins performance and set in motion actions that will drive change.
