I Can Help You Build Your Dream Team
Ever worked at an organisation where the team was just built wrongly?
You can have all the good ideas and resources in the world but if your team structure isn’t right, your progress will slow and it will eventually stall.
The list of problems caused by a poorly functioning team is almost endless – conflict, loss of productivity, lack of communication and, eventually, a big hit to the bottom line.
Before you know it, all your focus is on firefighting and trying to please warring members of your team. That’s not what you dreamt of doing when you built your business from scratch.
There’s no ‘one size fits all’ solution
As a business coach, problems caused by an ill-functioning team come to me every day and they all manifest themselves in a different way.
Sometimes there’s just too many egos preventing progress. Perhaps people are being pushed too hard – or not hard enough to keep them motivated. And occasionally, they just need reminding what their objectives are to get them back on track.
A dysfunctional team takes a toll on a business owner in a number of different ways. What they all have in common is that they keep that business owner up at night worrying about how to improve things and ultimately hold back a business from growth.
Often, there doesn’t seem to be a simple solution at hand. How on Earth do you motivate that brilliant but completely disenchanted manager who struggles to give the time of day to his team, never mind motivate them to produce their best work?
A highly productive team leader has badly fallen out with several direct reports. How do you tackle that without affecting her productivity? Or risk her talented team walking out to join your rival down the road?
Focus on what you can achieve
As a business coach and business owner myself, I’ve seen the magic that happens when unique talents collaborate and have developed a number of strategies to deal with exactly these sorts of problems.
One of the first things to do is stop focusing on the negatives thrown up by a dysfunctional team and instead switch your attention to what your business could look like if everyone was firing on all cylinders.
Once your focus is on the potential future instead of the problematic present, you’ll be in a much better position to tackle the team problems you’re facing.
And there’s a lot more I can share on a practical level:
- The team dynamics that drive effectiveness. It’s never as simple as throwing a load of talented people together.
- Your options to maximise your team’s potential. Maybe your team is performing well – but perhaps they could perform better with a tweak here or a conversation there.
- An action plan to reignite your team. A specific plan for each team member detailing how they could progress or a team-wide strategy to drive your business forward and keep your people motivated.
Utopia doesn’t exist
Let’s tell it like it is – a business where absolutely everybody is 100 per cent happy 100 per cent of the time does not exist. There’s always something you can do to help your team function better, to help your people feel appreciated and highly motivated and to therefore boost your bottom line.
As a Certified Systems Business Coach® (SBC), I know how to unlock your team’s potential and how to get you the peace of mind that comes from running a harmonious team.
I can help you focus on the problem – whether that’s a deep-seated personality clash between two key team members or a general loss of momentum – and give you the tools to solve it.
No problem is insurmountable
A business running on all cylinders with a harmonious team shouldn’t feel like an unreachable ideal. It can be achieved via practical strategies that rally your team around the company’s objectives and keep individual responsibilities front and centre in their mind.
Solving issues around team harmony is never a straightfoward task. That’s why it’s always an advantage to have an expert coach by your side. They know how to solve your problems because they’ve almost certainly seen them before somewhere else.
I spend my working life helping business leaders and entrepreneurs build better teams and get their teams working to their potential. Could your business benefit from that knowledge?
