When a team outgrows individual performance and learns team confidence, excellence becomes a reality. Joe Paterno


It has been well established that true high functioning teams outperform groups of high functioning individuals. The challenge is that companies often don't know where to implement teams or how to develop them. When they are formulated, teams are expected to come together and figure out how to work together often times without the skills or training to optimize the way the team works together. Despite their best intentions team members find themselves out of alignment working at cross-purposes. Tension builds and time and resources are wasted.

Enter the Performance Talks Team Development Process. A Performance Talks Team Development Coach works with the team to clarify their purpose and objectives. Once the team has agreement about a common purpose, the Coach then helps the team define the roles and expectations for each member of the team. The team works through any changes in the composition of the team as necessary with the assistance of the coach. Finally the coach facilitates the definition of an ongoing process of communication, action and interacting that the team can implement themselves going forward.
