A great workshop is typically effective for about 24 hours after it is finished. The trick is this; changing people’s behavior is hard. Getting people to change their behavior long- term is even harder. For teams to do better consistently over time, they need to operate differently. The good news is that all they need are a few core concepts to focus on, not 101 rules that will be overwhelming and soon forgotten.
After years of searching and trying out various approaches, we have found an effective method of team coaching that is simple, time-efficient, cost-effective, and delivers MEASURABLE results on a long-term basis. The team coaching environment allows team members to support, encourage and mentor each other, as well as hold each other accountable. Teams appreciate the simplicity of the system and the impact it has on their day-to-day lives and long term job satisfaction.
Quite simply, it works IF the team will work it. If your team is willing to put in the upfront effort and stick with the process, you will be thrilled by the change you will see in them.
