Collective thinking can, and does, change the world. Professionals come together with the best of intentions and high enthusiasm around a common goal or mission. The objective is to generate performance which is greater than the sum of the performance of its individual members.
But teaming is not without its issues. Effective team dynamics is based on mutual respect and trust. In reality, personality differences, poor communications, unspoken expectations, unrealistic deadlines, self-esteem, poor self-discipline, and lack of self-awareness can cause serious breakdowns to the best laid plans. Add to the typical structure of “departments” or “lines of business” and you can exacerbate the challenge of bringing people together behind a common vision.
Freddi believes that the number one cause of most team breakdowns is miscommunication and misunderstanding. It is about meeting each other’s expectations; which are often not communicated effectively (tested for comprehension) and can be unrealistic.
All of this can be mended when you introduce communication coaching and training. Done on site and online, teams in need of “repair” can be re-united with individual and group coaching with Freddi Donner. Freddi’s coaching can bring your team back together.
Individuals’ who receive coaching feel heard and understood. Through the coaching process, clients learn to understand and respect the differences of others. When you add in the training (click here to see topics) all team members begin to “play by the same guidelines”. Individual coaching is then blended with group coaching. Group coaching enables the team to “heal” by recognizing that the original intent, to work productively together, can be resurrected and the team can be reunited.
It is delicate work. Members of the team who demonstrate the desire to repair, can begin to feel the changes within four weeks. Want to reunite your team? Call Freddi in to help re-weave success and respect into your organization.
