We have a track record of pioneering effective and innovative approaches to team building. We work with new and existing teams, project teams, post acquisition and merged teams to deliver results.
If you have had experience of being part of an effective team you will know that it creates a great feeling of togetherness, resulting in increased performance.
We know your staff have much untapped knowledge and wisdom. Too few leaders recognise this or perhaps are not confident enough to allow them to run with issues and influence things. With a good, controlled process and effective leadership we know you can ‘unleash’ your staff on quite complex issues and be astounded at the quality of what they can come up with.
The context of engagement in business
Trying to engage people around a business plan etc. will seldom engender enthusiasm as much as engaging people around issues that they have influence over. This creates a powerful alignment and can be a great motivator for change especially if directed by the right process.
There is a very important element which must be involved if changes are to be dramatic and far-reaching; namely the workforce must be actually involved in creating and then implementing the solutions.
‘Handed down’ initiatives will never have the impact upon engagement that home-grown solutions will have; they will galvanise individuals and teams to really get behind any changes and will motivate them in a powerful way to really ensure they are implemented.
Staff have to feel they have the power to question and change things but at the same time not having the ‘tail wag the dog’.
Teambuilding & Engagement Success Story
Following a reorganisation of the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) operation division, there was a real need to create new teams in different geographical locations around Scotland.
Performance improvement in the Scottish Oil Industry
This successful project stemmed from the desire to improve safety performance, increase productivity rather than simply reduce costs plus give personnel opportunities to develop and take more responsibility.
