Teamwork: Builders and Blockers

Are team members aligned and rowing in the right direction? Are team members accountable for results? We offer team development by addressing the blockers or builders to team success. Teams that don’t TRUST one another will not effectively engage in unfiltered debate that effectively leads to successful COMMUNICATION. When issues that arise and conflict is not addressed, team members are unable to buy-in to the teams direction thus resulting in a lack of team ACCOUNTABILITY. Without accountability systems in place, teams will often place blame on others or use excuses to avoid be responsible for expected outcomes. This leads to poor EXECUTION which requires understanding roles and responsibilities, goals and priorities, and performance management.  See Teamwork – Builders and Blockers program outline
