Leadership is the key to improving team performance. This is no secret. However, the ability of each member to work together and show leadership will make it easier for them to translate their strengths into better results.
We will discuss Accelerated Teaming as one way to help.
The Accelerated Approach
It is not easy to change within an organization, especially when it involves re-shuffles of roles and cultural adjustments. It is possible to save time and money by accelerating the learning and application of new ideas and methods.
Accelerated teaming courses combine intense, high-impact sessions with behavioral analysis, profiling, and coaching to accelerate what could otherwise take many years.
We must strive for trust, creativity, drive, and collaboration. They are also vital qualities that we need to be successful. However, they can be challenging to attain. These qualities require well-qualified consultants who can teach, sharp minds that are willing to learn and continuously apply their knowledge on the front lines of business.
The sessions are only one part of the story. Leaders and team members must follow up in real life to learn and implement new strategies.
The most successful approaches produce faster results when they’re applied in “Business as Usual” settings. This minimizes disruption and speeds up the application of new models and methods.
A Step-By-Step Process
The best way to improve team performance is to use a series of clearly defined steps. When team members are able to see where they are collectively going, and this is documented, they respond better.
These steps are often included in accelerated teaming methods.

Building Team Foundations
Without trust and respect, a team can’t function. This must be communicated along with guidelines for group behavior and a clear understanding of roles.
How to manage conflict
Every team will experience moments of conflict. Managing those conflicts effectively can make the difference between success or failure. It is essential to practice authentic self-expression and manage conflict.
Embed Recognition and Reward
Recognition and reward must be a part of the culture of the team. There are many strategies for doing this.
Strategic Mindset Development
Each member of a team must understand their own strengths and those of others. This increases self-awareness, and appreciation for others can replace a focus on individual achievement.
Knowledge sharing must be a rewarding and natural process for all team members. It should not be a focus on individual areas of responsibility but instead, benefit the whole team.
For the team’s long-term success, it is crucial to have a clear vision of its future. Positive expectations for the future are vital to motivating and inspiring performance.
