TEAM DEVELOPMENT

Developing high-performance teams professionally

It is a basic human need to organize ourselves in teams and groups. Only together as a team can complex problems be solved and major challenges be creatively overcome. But not every group is a real team. The more diverse the team, the greater the potential. At the same time, different perspectives, characters, and experiences often lead to misunderstandings, conflicts, and coordination efforts. Many teams have strong personalities, but do not leverage their full potential – so, unfortunately, the whole is often less than the sum of its parts.

It is a challenging task to professionally develop high-performance teams. Don’t leave the formation of an effective high-performance team to chance. Through Profil M’s professional support, your teams will jointly find ways to develop trusting cooperation and consciously and purposefully design the right structures and processes for their work.

At Profil M, we bring many years of experience, proven concepts, and genuine personalities as consultants to this process. Through scientifically based and practical, proven methods and tools, we help you, from team and status quo analysis to the specific implementation of workshops and impulses all the way through to ensuring sustainable impact and change. Together with you, we identify key challenges and potential to create a positive momentum in the team and thus ensure sustainable team building. In doing so, we make sure to always work efficiently and effectively with clear goals, at the same time encouraging fun interactions. In the case of dysfunctional teams, we are honest and talk about possible causes, which can also lie in corporate structures, processes, or “impossible assignments.”

  • Building and starting entire new working or leadership teams
  • “Takeover” of a team by a new leader
  • Enabling teams in matrix or agile organizations to take action
  • Taking existing successful teams to the “next level” and developing a good team into a true high-performance team
  • Overcoming conflicts, dysfunctions, and obstacles that may currently be painful
  • Change situations and new challenges that require new team structures and team dynamics
  • Developing leadership teams (e.g., so that cooperation and, if necessary, new strategies are clearly and uniformly put into practice in a coordinated manner by those “at the top”)
  • Establishing rules in the team and defining common goals
  • Developing (temporary) project teams in the context of transformations and change projects

In the development of teams, our approaches and methods are based on proven and scientifically sound considerations and models, including:

  • Psychological safety (based on Amy Edmondson)
  • Positive leadership
  • Autonomous teams
  • Team dysfunctions (based on Patrick Lencioni)
  • Resilience (RDP, Resilience as a dynamic process) (link)
  • Agile leadership
  • Systemic individual, team, and peer coaching
  • Diagnostic procedures for personal development (e.g., LeadIM, MBTI, or Hogan)
  • Value reflections to systematically discuss attitudes and values

A professional team building process can be conducted with face-to-face as well as remote, digital, or hybrid elements. The joy of working together is just as important here as the goal-oriented discussion of the “upcoming” topics. The media, methods, and approaches used are individually tailored to your situation and integrated into a coherent overall concept.

Take the opportunity to have your team development professionally supported by Profil M, so that you…

  • can reflect on your team’s experiences and challenges in a goal-oriented way and use them constructively
  • ensure that you consciously and purposefully design the right structures and processes
  • strengthen the relationship and trust within the team and give positive impetus to the team spirit

In this way, teams can learn together to work more autonomously and successfully in entrepreneurial terms than ever before.

As a rule, good team development starts with a joint discussion of the initial situation and objectives, for example with the leader or HR.
On this basis, the current situation of the team is then systematically ascertained. This can be done through short online surveys as well as through intensive personal, confidential interviews in advance. The results are then processed and fed back to the respective leader and the team.

Based on a jointly agreed agenda, a team workshop is then held (or more than one, if necessary), in which common challenges and potential are discussed, perspectives are compared, and solutions are developed.

Profil M consultants create the framework for this, so that the team members can develop a strong, positive momentum through good impulses and their own efforts, and thus become increasingly better at developing and improving themselves on an ongoing basis. In the workshops, intensive discussions, creative development phases (for example, with “Design Thinking” elements) and genuine team experiences alternate again and again. In this way, both the shared awareness of the team and the team’s ability to act are further developed and the emotional level is addressed and made tangible. A positive team spirit is created, which not only strengthens the competence but also the resilience of the team.

This team building process can be conducted with face-to-face as well as remote, digital, or hybrid elements. The appropriate media, methods, and approaches are individually tailored to your situation and integrated into a coherent overall concept. Take the opportunity to have your team development professionally supported by Profil M, so that you…

  • ensure that you consciously and purposefully design the right structures and processes
