From our base in Halifax, Calderdale, we help businesses throughout Yorkshire and the North of England to get the best out of their people. Releasing the full potential of a business is usually founded upon releasing the full potential and abilities of the people within it.
This can entail training, management development, team building, coaching and/or workforce planning. Most frequently it is a blend of these development activities that are required. We call these services Team Development.
We work alongside managers and employers in order to help them understand the key principles, techniques and responsibilities involved in enhancing the performance of their team or teams. We pass on the lessons we have learned working with a range of businesses and public sector organisations in sectors including manufacturing, software development, web design, pharmaceuticals, local authorities, Central Government and telecommunications.
Frequently, we start our team development projects by delivering a workshop for managers, employers and team members giving them a starting point in the essentials of team development. This covers:
Principles of team dynamics – How we behave in teams
Types of teams – identifying opportunities to collaborate
The stages of team development
Team roles – developing a balanced team
High performance teams and overcoming barriers to high performance
Handling conflict within a team
Planning a team development day
ROI: Making team development cost effective
Many businesses also benefit from undertaking psychometric and personality profiling of their team members. The precise data this provides informs highly tailored team planning, team building and employee development.
