Start a Virtuous Cycle & Create a Winning Team

Posted by Claude Warner on Monday 8th November 2010 at 10:13:21

A virtuous cycle is defined as a positive reinforcing loop that produces favourable results and continues in the momentum of its direction.
Once you create success and maintain the activities that brought about that success (i.e. stick to the basics), success will continue to breed greater success.
The key to a high performing team is how well team members work together. If their individual performances are synergized (remember 1 + 1 = 3) then the team’s power can grow exponentially, thus creating a virtuous cycle.
But what are the “basics” that synergise the efforts of the individuals within a team into a high performing team that delivers favourable business results, and still keeps improving over time?
The “basics” are the clarity of the communication between team members, the quality of their relationships and the depth of the trust they have in each other.
Of the three, the best place to start a virtuous cycle is to improve the clarity of communication amongst team members. This creates a positive reinforcing loop that enhances the quality of the relationships which in turn increases the trust among team members.
The TeamPower group coaching programme has been designed to create a virtuous cycle in teams be they front line management teams, departmental teams, branch teams or project teams.
By learning and applying the 6 key concepts within the programme teams will become more productive, more responsive (remember the speed of trust), stakeholder engagement will improve and there will be more harmony and less stress within the team.
TeamPower is available as a powerful one day workshop that can kickstart a virtuous cycle, or as a monthly session delivered over 6 months where learning can be applied over time, creating a positive reinforcing loop.
Full details of the TeamPower programme are available here.
