Most business leaders understand that significant performance gains can be achieved through teamwork, and yet few organisations get the results from their teams that they expect.
In most cases, team membership is a part time role. Team members are selected for their knowledge and expertise, and their primary role is to fulfil functional responsibilities.
The fact that their membership on a team is a part-time role does not mean it is a less important role. Each team member needs to understand the difference between these two roles... their responsibilities to their primary job and their responsibilities to the team. These two sets of responsibilities are different, and usually require quite different behaviours.
Effective teamwork cannot be achieved unless team members understand the need to switch from one role to the other. To do this, they must exhibit flexibility (the willingness to mentally switch roles) and behavioural adaptability (the skill and knowledge required to effectively perform both roles).
Intégro's Team Development Process helps team members develop both flexibility and adaptability, as well as provide critical measurement that keeps the team focused on its performance rather than on the personalities of team members, or team building for its own sake.
