A leader’s success is commensurate with the results of his or her team. When teams are not operating at their highest levels, one or more of the following issues are typically at play:
Leaders have not mastered the art of empowering others. They think they have all the answers and don’t trust that their people can do the job as well or even better than they can.
Leaders are living with “B” talent to avoid conflict and/or the loss of institutional knowledge.
Roles and accountabilities are unclear.
Leaders are allowing behaviors that impede collaboration and trust.
The team has been poorly managed in the past.
A mix of old and new team members is causing conflict.
Gramercy Consulting works with leaders and their teams to address these and other challenges. We accelerate results through a team-coaching process that gets issues out on the table, creates new “Rules of Engagement” and gains team and leader buy-in to a new way of working. High performance is developed through ongoing coaching and team check-ins. Ultimately, our greatest reward comes the day we walk away, knowing the highly functioning team no longer needs our support.
Our team coaching process includes three key components:
This process is highly customized depending on the situation.
