Developing High Performance Teams
||Managers need to develop and sustain High Performing Teams. We help them to gain commitment from their teams, and then take practical action to improve their team's performance.|
For top teams it is essential that they maintain their performance and create the right environment to encourage the ‘blue-printing’ of best practice so that they achieve corporate goals.

teamindex360© is a specialised online survey designed to obtain honest and reliable information from team members in the organisation.
Leaders and managers can use the feedback received from the survey to prioritise where to spend their time and resources most effectively to improve team performance.
teamindex360© helps with the ‘softer’ issues of team performance, such as
- The level of understanding and acceptance of the team’s strategy and how it fits into the business
- The quality of leadership and management
- How conflict is managed
- The degree of honesty, trust and commitment within the team
You can measure progress on a regular basis, and focus on the areas ‘that really matter’, based on a proper understanding rather than on a set of assumptions.
You can use the feedback to raise awareness at all levels of the organisation about the priorities and successes achieved.
You are also able to ‘blue-print’ best practice as the feedback received can be categorised in order to draw comparisons between different teams in the organisation.
Leaders and managers gain commitment, establish ownership and maintain momentum within the organisation, which helps them achieve their goals.
“teamindex360© is a speedy way of getting people to start to talk about things, to focus on the important areas and to discuss different points of view in an open and frank way, enabling everyone to explore together their different attitudes about being in the team. It was an excellent mechanism for informing us about where we sat in the organisation and how we related to other teams. It showed us where we needed to work on our relationships within the team and to understand that we are all different. Everyone really took ownership of what existed and we were able to highlight what we had to do to change”.
Catherine Sweet, Commercial Director, Local Government Association.
