Teams don’t become great by accident, but by design
In our more than 20 years of experience in coaching and developing teams, InContext team coaches help teams and their leaders to get the right people on board, nail the required performance level, break down silo’s, work through (and NOT around) conflict, lose unnecessary ballast, put unique strengths to work and have fun.
A team coach stands by the team, helps, reflects and confronts. The coach is a facilitator and helps get the real issues on the table. If necessary, the coach can introduce state-of-the-art tools like Team Flow Index to analyse and understand issues and support the team through rough times. An InContext coach also knows when to step back and let the team take its own responsibility to develop, grow and perform.
What you can expect
01. Build your team
We create a team profile by making personality profiles, creating development centers, testing capabilities and developing an in-depth understanding of the team’s tasks.
We help determine the compatibility of team members, uncover the blind spots and train the skills needed to have team members work together effectively. We also map the congruency of values and beliefs among team members and explore whether they are really on board, or not. All in order to create the right balance and mix between competition and cooperation and optimizing performance.
03. Synergize your team
We build team focus and a synchronized, collaborative working process.
We offer a mirror for team members to get to know themselves and one another, understanding their strengths and areas for development and discovering potential team challenges.
We enable teams to combine strengths, harmonize the ways of working and prevent latent problems mushrooming and becoming destructive. A team doesn’t rock when its potential is unfocused.
02. Analyse your team
We assess the team’s strengths and weaknesses, enabling team members to deliver optimal results.
The tasks and contexts of teams vary and therefore the definition of ‘a team’ varies. We use our state-of-the-art tool Team Flow Index to identify what the team needs to get the job done well. We look at the team composition, structure and leadership, taking into account the context, the environment and the task at hand.
We analyze and provide feedback. We work with teams, in a fully connected way, to achieve their goals.
04. Optimize your team performance
We introduce the perspective and feedback from the team’s environment, helping the team to understand the effect of their working methods and their performance on others.
We help the team’s understanding by collecting the feedback, defining pathways to improvement and developing the skills required.
By having the right KPIs in place, and with an open feedback loop, the team will be able to monitor their performance and become a team which is continuously improving.
