What does it take to be an effective and exceptional team?

Awareness - Knowing individual preferences and priorities,  behavioral motivators, and stressors. The level of trust team members have for one another is vital to effectiveness.

Accountability - The level at which individuals are engaged and hold themselves accountable is directly connected to their commitment to the team results. Accountability fuels growth which is a must for a team to thrive.

Agility - The ability to adapt to change, even when a situation is unclear or structure may be lacking. Agility takes open-mindedness and a willingness to adjust and pivot to take the team in the best direction.

Action - When everyone commits to supporting one another, rallies around results, and embraces diversity, they are equipped to take the team to great heights!

The challenge

 Ineffective Teams

The challenge of getting everyone on the same page can sometimes seem impossible.  When left unmitigated, these obstacles can result in loss of profits and productivity.

The effects of poor teamwork take away from the bottom line profits of an organization. On average employees spend about 7 hours per week (two full months a year) dealing with the effects of poor teamwork.

Identifying an Ineffective team: 

Little or no trust: Team members state they work in a toxic work environment.

Lack of Commitment: Team members feel a lack of connection with the organization's goals and results.

Personal Accountability: Team members don't take personal responsibility for their actions in order to improve their team's performance.

“Coaches are a lot of fun to work with”

Helene and Lynne with L2L are a big part of the success of our company. In the past, we have struggled to develop a clear mission and nurture a culture that supports that mission. They took the time to truly understand our business and unique challenges — then provided a safe space for us to explore the best path moving forward. Helene and Lynne are sharp, approachable, results-oriented…and a lot of fun to work with. We look forward to a long, prosperous relationship with L2L. Thank you!
