Pressing Business Need
When success requires teams that are aligned and relentlessly focused on common goals, communicate well with each other, manage conflict with minimal disruption, and move with both speed and accuracy of action; they need High Performance Teams (HPT).
We help teams achieve what the research has shown to be the hallmarks of HPT; teams with the ability to act horizontally, rely on each other, and maintain a strong operating culture. When HPT is in place it acts as a barrier to what Lencioni identified as the 5 dysfunctions of a team: absence of trust, fear of conflict, lack of commitment, avoidance of accountability, and an inattention to results.
The return on effort to establish high performance teams is substantial. They achieve a tempo of predictively and consistently producing results at a level higher than others. More importantly for leadership, they do this without explicit management of the process as they possess the initiative to take independent action, and apply the discretionary effort to get the job done. This is what we call the HPT dividend, the benefit that continues to pay out well beyond the effort to build HPT has past.
Not finance. Not strategy. Not technology. It is teamwork that remains the
ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and so rare — Patrick Lencioni
Assessments & Tools
The HPT work shop run by Lighthouse NINE, the way they delivered the content and facilitated the session were a perfect match for our needs. The team was highly engaged and energized and we became stronger as a team after the session. I’d definitely recommend this work shop to any manager willing to strengthen his team capabilities while driving engagement.
