Effective teams are the engine of an organization. When focused and goal oriented, they can produce timely, high-quality results.
At Gallagher, our Team Effectiveness service is ideally suited for organizations executing a new strategic direction, teams struggling to execute their mandate, and newly formed executive teams.
When organizations meet a minimum threshold for diversity their operational performance can improve by up to 50%. Diversity is a strong tool, but diversity without mutual understanding and alignment can create challenges.
All teams will benefit from different problem-solving styles, motivations, and means of self-assessment. However, without mutual understanding, these differences have the potential to lead to conflict instead of progress.
Our Team Effectiveness services will guide you through self-assessments, team-assessments, goal alignment exercises to create mutual understanding of the team’s strengths and weaknesses. Then, the team can develop competencies supporting strategy execution.
When you know which team members will excel in different situation, everyone can put their best foot forward when it’s needed the most.
Our Team Effectiveness services adhere to a business first philosophy. Every step of our process is designed to bring you closer to achieving your business objectives. That could be increasing revenues, creating a leaner workforce, or improving your organization’s ability to collaborate remotely. No matter the imperative, our Team Effectiveness service will be customized to the unique needs of your organization and will target all four elements of healthy teams: self-awareness, direction, trust, and cohesion.
