Anatomy of a high-performing team

A high-performing team is the result of a purposeful approach that focuses on various aspects such as purpose, tasks, relationships, and processes. A competent leader understands the importance of selecting team members who bring diverse styles, perspectives, and experience to the table. The leader then establishes common objectives and fosters a shared mindset among the team members. Additionally, a sense of belonging and strong team morale are created, and the leader acknowledges individual and team successes. Open dialogue and collaboration are encouraged, which results in a productive and efficient team.

Facilitative Leadership

This module is centered around the fundamental principle of employee engagement, which is that people are more committed to decisions and plans that they have actively participated in creating. In this module, you will gain valuable knowledge, skills, and processes that will enable you to effectively engage with your team and achieve true commitment toward your team’s goals. Through practical micro-processes, you will learn how to increase the engagement and involvement of team members, leading to a more productive and cohesive team.

Problem Solving and Decision Making

High-performing teams are characterized by their ability to make effective decisions, solve problems efficiently, and possess excellent communication skills. However, it’s not uncommon for teams to encounter difficulties in these areas, which can result in team conflict. In this course, you will learn a range of creative problem-solving and decision-making techniques that will enable you to navigate beyond the storming phase and achieve high performance. Additionally, we will explore three distinct leadership decision styles and their appropriate usage, allowing you to choose the most effective style for your team in any given situation.

Drive Engagement

When people are engaged, amazing things can happen. Engaged employees exhibit energized, focused, and more aligned work behavior, which ultimately leads to increased productivity and success for the organization. As a skilled leader, it is important to structure work in a way that aligns with people’s goals and motivations. By empowering team members and making them feel valued, leaders can foster a sense of ownership and visibility, inviting input and sharing responsibility for outcomes. Additionally, it is crucial to establish a clear connection between each team member’s motivators and the organizational goals, creating a shared sense of purpose that drives engagement and productivity.
