In today’s global landscape and flatter hierarchies, long-term success of the organisation depends on the whole leadership team, rather than ‘one charismatic leader’. A poorly aligned top team breeds competing agendas and turf politics; whereas a high-performing one ensures organisational coherence and focus.
According to a McKinsey survey, only 20% of executives believed that their team was a high-performing one. When the top team does not work in collaboration and harmony, it can lead to a large amount of value destruction for the organisation.
InspireOne brings extensive experience in conducting interventions that develop supportive, inclusive, and collaborative behaviors in top team members. We use patented team interaction process which is built to enable team members to move away from defending own ideas and thoughts to building common understanding and achieving maximum results i.e. a shift from “I” to “we” thinking.
Team Interaction Process is a highly validated application model based on scientific observation of more than 100 teams over a period of several months. The process focuses on the following objectives:
- Fundamental behavior change and improved problem-solving for individuals and the team.
- Team development using real, powerful and relevant business scenarios.
- A new way of operating and team processes, which can be cascaded through business.
- Key behaviors which are crucial for building a strong culture of collaboration.
