It Doesn't Have To Be -- You Just Need The Right Tools In Your Toolbox

Video Length: 1 min 40 sec

Are You Facing These Problems In Your Team Too?

  • Why is open and honest communication so hard? How can I get my team members to talk to each other about difficult issues and give each other feedback without causing grief, misunderstandings, and conflict?
  • Why don't people accept changes in processes and policies without whining and giving me a bunch of grief? On top of that, it's difficult to bring everyone together as a team because personality conflicts interfere.
  • How do I get different departments to work with each other? Most of the time the communication is via email and not in person, though they are all in the same office! They still act as individual "silos."
  • Why are meetings such a time suck? Isn't there a way to have an efficient meeting without them going on forever?
  • How do I get supervisors to acknowledge that they have a problem with lack of teamwork when they are part of the dysfunction?
  • Can't we just graduate from second grade already? Teams spend more time telling on each other and their own leaders. This creates major mistrust issues in the teams, and casts doubts on my leadership ability.
  • How do I get more time? All we do is meet program deadlines and client outcomes which means we have no time for getting together to engage in activities such as brainstorming, planning, encouraging or supporting each other as a team.
  • Doesn't executive management understand we are working with people here, not robots? Stronger people support from them would help a ton.

Having A High Performance Team
Is Not A Pipe Dream

I bet your business life would be so much easier if you could just solve your team's problems that waste precious hours and cause daily stress. It's not impossible.

  • You can get rid of the pettiness that runs rampant in so many teams by simply implementing an effective communication and feedback process.
  • You can turn conflict into good for your team instead of something that tears it apart.
  • You can make team decisions that will actually become reality without any in fighting or wasted time about what you’re supposed to be deciding.
  • You can easily hold people accountable for the things they agree to instead of chasing deadlines.
  • You can have more time to do what you need to do by delegating the right way and not having to worry about whether an assignment will be on time or have to be done by you all over again.
  • You can have a healthy team environment and meet all the requirements of the day-to-day hustle.
  • You can have good, open communication with and support from executive staff by simply putting a few simple methods in place.

Each Action Guide Contains
Everything You Need To Implement With Your Team

Each step-by-step guide, in easily downloadable PDF format, is to the point with actionable steps designed to walk you through the process of implementing the solution in your team. The guides vary in length, but include exactly the right amount of information for you to resolve the issue. There are currently 122 content pages in the tool box.

  • Introduction

    An overview of the problem the lesson will help you solve and high level description of what steps you will take.

  • Content

    Step-by-step instructions to help you facilitate your team to resolution on the topic of that lesson. Some lessons include pre-work and many provide downloadable templates for you to use with your team.

  • Assignment

    Instructions on what action you should take to implement that lesson with your team.

So I bet you're wondering whether this will work with your team. Here are some common questions.

  • Q

    My team is different so regular training stuff doesn’t work.

    Yes, your team is different. Every team is different. But what’s not different about every single team is that it’s made up of people working together to achieve a common goal. To do that, there are ways the team must function to be the highest performing. I firmly believe that people come to work wanting to make a contribution and do a good job. But sadly, most of them aren’t quite sure how when it comes to working in a team. Without any kind of training, it can be a real land mine of problems that inhibit the team’s ability to get work done.

  • Q

    My team is virtual and we don’t have a chance to get together in person.

    Virtual teams definitely add an additional layer of complication to working together and actually require more attention than a team that spends all of its time face to face. But that doesn't mean it’s impossible. The key is to focus on what methods will work with your virtual team rather than what won’t work.

  • Q

    My team works in shifts so getting them all in one place at the same time is just not possible.

    Shift work can be a real challenge too. But there are key activities you can put in place to make this a non-issue. Just like virtual teams, teams that work shifts actually require more “up front” attention to get foundational items in place so they can work smoothly together.

  • Q

    None of us (me or my team) have time to devote to any kind of training. We're just too busy.

    I get that. We’re all really busy. In today’s business environment, we’re all trying to do more with less. That’s the beauty of this training. You can devote small pockets of time to work through your team issues to get them resolved. You don’t have to spend days or weeks in a training program before you’re finished.

  • Q

    “Real work” takes priority over anything else and there’s no way we could squeeze this in.

    Being an effective, high performance team is part of the day to day real work so this is a mindset shift that will take place in your team as you make changes. It’s not separate at all. Think of it this way. Working and functioning together in a less than ideal way (which is what you are probably facing right now) is part of the day to day. Working together better can be too.

  • Q

    There’s no budget for training.

    The toolbox is an affordable option that can be used over and over again. There are three options to choose from so you can pick the right one for your situation.

  • Q

    I've tried that team building stuff and it never seems to stick.

    Most of the team building solutions out today promise you that in a single day together your team will be permanently “fixed.” That’s just not possible. There’s typically no follow through and no way to take the lessons learned back to the workplace. The team building tool box provides you with step by step “how to” guides that help you walk your team through your specific issue, so you can develop solutions and action plans for making the change stick.

What Other People Had to Say...

Our team welcomed more structure to our meetings and holding ourselves accountable for following our new “rules.”

Susanne C., Executive Director

Thank you again for showing us how important the “up front” work is and how to pursue a decision-making process rather than get bogged down in detail and conflict.

Dan V., Program Coordinator

About The Author - Denise O'Berry

I've been working with teams and team leadership in the public, non profit and private sectors for over twenty years. The one universal truth about working together is that it's about people. My advice comes from the heart along with years of experience working as a team member, team leader, manager and owner of my own company. I have truly walked in your shoes and want to save you the frustration that often comes with managing a unique team of individuals. You get my years of experience working with teams and leadership boiled down to 12 step-by-step action guides. All for a lot less than hiring a high priced consultant. And you’ll get results.

Whether your team is just forming or has been together a while, the 12 step-by-step action guides in this program will help you build (or rebuild) the proper team foundation that will minimize team building problems and help you get the team results you expect.

  • Short and Easy to Digest

    Each guide is filled with actionable content. There is a very real problem these days with “information overload” where you simply have too much information to absorb. Each guide is purposefully brief (but very thorough!) so you can quickly read it and easily put it into practice with your team.

  • Includes an Assignment to Implement

    Every guide will give you an assignment to complete at the conclusion. Instead of giving you the usual “this is what I’ve done” stuff, I’m giving you “this is what you do” stuff! After reading each guide, you’ll know the easy-to-implement action steps to take with your team.

  • Builds As You Progress

    Every guide helps you take one step closer to having the work team of your dreams. Later lessons build on the early ones which give you the “foundation basics” that support a healthy team environment. If your foundation is already solid, you can easily begin with the more advanced lessons to move your team along.

  • Helps You Succeed Long Term

    While many books and traditional websites (and even some high-priced coaching programs) pile on a bunch of information and leave you to put it all together for yourself, that isn’t how things are setup in this program. Within the guides, I take you by the hand and walk you step-by-step through the actions you need to take to improve your team.
