Team Development for Stronger Results
Strengthen team effectiveness through better collaboration, communication, and focus.
About Team Development
Highly effective teams don’t just happen — they’re built through team development programs that emphasize clear team priorities, mutual accountability, candid and thoughtful dialogue, and trust developed over time.
The members of any team face the challenge of balancing their individual priorities with the team leader’s goals and agenda. Even well-functioning teams can benefit from pausing to reflect on how well their decision-making process is working and whether the experience and talents of their members are being fully leveraged.
Cambria works with senior teams to enhance their effectiveness by identifying strengths and opportunities for improvement, facilitating honest conversations and providing tools that support team development.
Through a combination of individual and group work, Cambria’s team development consulting facilitates the engagement of every team member and elicits the commitment needed to achieve the team’s potential, all in the context of the challenges facing the business overall, the team, and each person’s individual role.
Cambria helps teams at all levels — from the C-suite down — set and align around clear goals, maintain focus on team priorities, engage in open and productive debate, successfully onboard new members, and develop greater levels of understanding and stronger working relationships among all members.
Individuals leave our facilitated sessions with a greater sense of team purpose, clarity around roles, and renewed energy, all of which lead to enhanced team decision-making.
Addressing Your Key Challenges
For senior teams to be successful, team members need to appreciate and leverage each other’s strengths, styles, and contributions toward a common purpose. Though the usual team building activities can boost morale and improve working relationships, they do not address aligning team members with organizational goals and each other.
Cambria’s team development coaching helps teams at the top set and align themselves with clear goals, maintain their focus on team priorities, engage in open and productive debate, and develop stronger working relationships at a higher level.
How Cambria Helps
Both long-standing and newly-formed teams benefit from an in-depth understanding of their collective strengths and development needs. These include interpersonal and operating styles, behavioral tendencies, and level of alignment – all of this in the context of the challenges facing the business overall, the team, and each person’s role.
With greater understanding among team members, teams minimize conflict and misunderstanding, enhance working relationships, and leverage collective strengths to operate more effectively.
Even high-functioning teams need the chance to recharge individual members and re-align with the organization’s mission and vision.
Cambria’s team development programs include practical exercises, assessment instruments, and a cadre of senior coaches to help groups focus on process and relationships as well as results. Teams leave our sessions ready to work smarter, faster, and better together to achieve common goals.
In addition to working in a group setting with the entire team, Cambria’s team effectiveness coaches work one-on-one with team members to facilitate their engagement, integrate their individual goals with those of the team, enhance their commitment and contribution to the team’s success, and improve their working relationships with fellow team members.
