How to Help Your Team Enjoy Working Together to Boost Productivity

If you have ever been part of a group of people working to accomplish a shared goal or complete a project, then you have been part of a team.

Being part of a team can be an exciting and fulfilling experience. It can also be a nightmarish period that drives your stress levels through the roof. Thousands of people leave teams daily because the dynamics are too combative.

The departure of team members can setback a project timeline and increase costs for time-sensitive projects. The energy and focus of the team is compromised, sometimes even harmed. It takes time to establish new relationships with new team members.

 In my 22 years as a Conflict Analyst, my work has included helping disputing teams to become more collaborative. I shared strategies to effectively re-energize and refocus team members and their desire to collaborate. These are customized to the size and needs of each organization.Once, I was asked to work with a team that had replaced all of its members three times. I had to find out the cause of this high turnover rate. Due to the stressful demands of a particular project, team members needed a very high level of collaborative trust in order to be successful. As we approach the upcoming the Global Workplace Wellness Summit in November, I will continue to share information and resources for reducing stressful dynamics. I want your organizations to have thriving, healthy employees who stay well even in the face of difficult changes. Highly collaborative teams are an asset to organizations. Having a healthy environment for collaboration creates a powerful synergy that maximizes your ability to execute while reducing errors, waste and workplace stress. You will meet tight deadlines and retain talented employees.

This is why the Collaborative Management Blueprint Master Class was created. Over the last four years, hundreds of highly collaborative leaders have completed this program. They were equipped with strategies and tools to support thriving collaborative teams in their respective workplaces. This master class continues to grow in popularity and size. Its highly accessible hybrid learning format gives leaders the flexibility to learn at their own pace. It can even be done while traveling!We have upgraded the class, adding new content and the individual onboarding master coaching session. Apply now and reserve a spot for yourself or a team leader in your organization. This program comes with our signature high-value content. 

Yes, I want to improve my collaborative management skills!
