How is it that in more and more teams the atmosphere is deteriorating, and performance is continuously decreasing?
Why do good employees and managers frequently hand in their notice? Why do employee questionnaires so often return negative feedback?
In some cases, vacancies remain unfilled, because no one is willing to work in certain teams.
Or perhaps they are currently delivering average results, despite having the potential to do so much more…
From my experience, the reasons for this are as follows:
Managers neglect to invest in team competence, team spirit and team communication.
Mostly, because they are unaware that this is something that can be worked on in a targeted and effective way.
Many managers – whose job it is to develop their team – have no training in how modern team development can be implemented using agile methods
Nor are they familiar with how teams function in our dynamic, fast-paced environment.
The daily work routine often leaves little time for dealing with team development. This results in the status quo being tolerated for too long (often until the situation escalates)…
In part, these are all understandable and human reasons. Nevertheless, they cost the company a lot of money.
Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way!
Managers and teams, who are entangled in problematic situations, get a much better grip on the underlying problems more quickly with the help of an external coach.
Don’t wait until conflict within your team spoils the atmosphere and drastically lowers performance.
Develop an efficient team early on and invest in coaching tailored to helping you achieve this.
