Team Building

In today’s increasingly horizontal business environments, functioning as part of a self-directed work team or task force is an ongoing challenge for employees at all levels. Many individuals experience difficulty in moving from a “me” to a “we” mentality – whether their role is as leader or participant. Often the purpose, goals and accountabilities within a team are not clearly defined or communicated. Interpersonal dynamics and conflicts can also impede the team’s ability to be productive. LED works with our clients to:

  • Clearly articulate the team’s purpose, goals and objectives, and timetable
  • Define and ensure understanding of leaders’ and participants’ roles and responsibilities
  • Review and recommend appropriate team-based incentive and reward systems
  • Design and implement processes such as ongoing communication and decision-making to maximize team efficiency and productivity
  • Develop the leadership, communication and project management skills of team members
  • Surface and resolve conflicts and barriers to success within and across teams
  • Facilitate meetings, as well as coach leaders on effective meeting planning and facilitation
  • Conduct team-building activities and exercises to enhance interpersonal relationships and increase commitment
