Accelerated teaming, a new approach to improving organizational performance, draws upon the most recent insights from psychology and behavioral neuroscience. Peter Burow has been studying how leaders and organizations can benefit from more profound understandings of the brain and human behavior for the past twenty years.
This approach is intended to improve team performance by fostering creativity and improving problem-solving skills in areas like crisis management, product innovation, and leadership.
Accelerated Teaming Basics
Accelerated teaming is intense and high-impact. It combines analysis, profiling, and coaching. This approach aims to accelerate the development of skills, expertise, and culture that teams can achieve over the years organically.
It’s most effective when it is used on the job in a business-as-usual environment. It is easy for team members to learn it and then apply it immediately in the real world. With coaching and monitoring, trust and motivation are high in the environment of strong team values.
While some of the immediate results can be seen, the ultimate goal is to create a long-term culture change.
Summary of the 8 Steps to Accelerated Teaming
First, we must identify the gaps between the current culture of the organization and the one we wish to create. This audit is necessary, and ground rules should be established.
Before we can start to address specific issues within our team, it is essential that we establish trust and respect within our group.
3. Conflict Management
The next step is authentic self-expression and managing conflict within the group.
4. Recognition & Reward
Next, embed recognition and reward systems in the team culture. Many teams continue to operate under fear and threats, which can be counterproductive.
5. Strategic Mindsets
Understanding the strengths of each member of the team and recognizing their weaknesses is key to the “genius” of the group.
6. Knowledge Management
The team develops a culture of knowledge sharing so that everyone is focused on the positive outcomes of the group and not individual recognition.
7. Moving forward
To maintain motivation and energy levels and to “buy into” the new culture, positive expectations for the future are essential.
Strategic reviews establish benchmarks for future performance. These are essential, so that old habits don’t return to the team.

Accelerated teaming not only helps team members solve conflicts and problems better but also boosts performance by increasing enthusiasm, creativity, and agility. Accelerated Teaming has profound effects on team dynamics, organizational culture, and organizational culture.
