Do I actually have a team?
Strange question? Not really. There are a LOT of presentations and trainings done on “team building” or “creating a better team” or “making an effective team” when in fact the people in the audience ARE NOT A TEAM.
A company is NOT a team. It is fine, great and necessary to share a common vision, theme or “flag” however in reality a company is a series of teams combined with many individual contributors. In working with Partner Learning Solutions, the first thing we will determine is how the people who will participate are connected, or not.
- Do they share common management?
- Do they share common goals and objectives?
- Do they share specific KPI’s?
How does their individual contribution impact the broader team? How is “team” communication undertaken? Once we have a clear picture of this, we can proceed to question two.
