Team and Organizational Development
Building and leading high performing teams is absolutely critical in today's competitive business climate. Lynn Reed Associates offers a number of programs designed to significantly improve group interaction and team performance at all levels right up to the Board of Directors. These programs provide participants with tools and techniques to be more adaptive to change, better leaders, better team members, more effective communicators, better problem solvers and more creative. We routinely deliver these programs in cross-functional, multicultural and multinational environments.
A one-day structured session to accelerate the integration of a new manager with an intact or newly formed team, dramatically improving team performance as a result. It should be conducted within 3 to 4 weeks of the new manager’s arrival. This workshop can also be applied to integrate new team members into an existing team.
A two-day process to define and clarify the mission, vision, value proposition, goals, strategy, roles, processes and relationships for newly formed or intact teams. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI*) is utilized to significantly enhance the quality of working relationships across the team. Team Start is frequently used to develop strategic direction for an organization or to help accelerate a major transformation, starting with the senior management team. This process can be extended as a large group intervention to cover several hundred members of an organization as required.
