How can you consciously shape high-performance teams?
The answer lies in team member relationships that are characterised by a healthy attitude, common objective, and mutual trust which fosters collaboration, encourages creativity and diversity, reduces conflict and increases commitment to the team. When mutual trust and understanding is present, it enables team members to better interpret one another’s behaviour and allows a sense of psychological safety to emerge. This makes way for an environment that:
- Has open lines of communication
- Is safe and accepting of questions in shaping the vision, purpose, and goals of the business
- Has transparent information processes to drive high-quality decision-making
- Has constructive conflict management norms, thereby encouraging diversity of thinking in promoting creative and innovative thinking, accountability in taking initiative and managing risk, as well as assertive peer management in influencing individual, team and business effectiveness.
At PsyGro, we partner with teams as a catalyst in their team conversations. We introduce teams to their individual and collective personality and behavioural dynamics and explore the development of key interpersonal skills such as effective communication, emotional intelligence, effective handling of conflict, and collaboration as focal points in their development as they strive to lead authentically and effectively.
Create a high-performance mindset within your teams.
