Dream TeamDo you feel it in your gut – a sense that your company cannot shift into a higher and different gear that the Covid pandemic is demanding of you?

Are you perhaps frustrated that your teams don’t get it, not able to align and support the new business objectives that you have set to get through the current crisis?

The word “crisis” is relative, isn’t it? Some companies are thriving and doing really well these days. Others have hit the wall and are struggling to survive.

During times of stress, change and uncertainty can be even more challenging, particularly when your people work remotely.

Business priorities might require adaptations to a new team strategy. Team members might leave and new colleagues – who may never have met their other team members in person – might join. This can fundamentally change the dynamics of any team.

So, as a Team Leader, how can you navigate your team through daily obstacles and challenges without losing sight of the bigger picture?

The starting point is knowing exactly what the behavioural drives and needs of each team member are. This creates an invaluable self-awareness among the team and fosters mutual respect.

It’s not your fault

  • Few tools exist that help you analyze talent and guide team creation.
  • Few tools help people understand how to improve their own performance.
  • No tools let you see the whole person or team in the context of your strategic goals.
  • You may be rich with talented individuals in your organization, but they’re not assembled and managed in a way that pushes everyone to the top of their game.
  • Maybe leaders across your organization just make bad hires?

How do you align your teams and strategic goals?

Team DiscoveryThe unique PI Team Discovery™ tool allows you to assess your team’s behavioral identity in direct comparison with your respective team’s strategic goals.

This helps you to visualise where the team is likely to succeed and where they might need additional support.

Once you have identified strategic alignment, opportunities and challenges, the Team Discovery allows you to create action plans to create high-performing and well-functioning teams that are strategically aligned.

You are now so much closer to moving towards your new objectives.
