Coached Programme

Performance Teaming Foundations is hosted online via our site and uses Zoom (or other video platforms) for live coaching sessions. This course includes 8 x 1-hour coaching sessions for your team.

Your coaching will be with coaches who are EMCC-accredited in team coaching at foundation level, having qualified as part of the first cohort to complete the Global Team Coaching Institute programme in 2020.

As business becomes ever-more competitive, complex and dynamic, it is becoming increasingly normal for critical activities to demand extremely high levels of collaborative working to achieve success. As a result, teamwork - especially across functional and company boundaries - is not only becoming an absolute foundational requirement of ‘business as usual’ but, more importantly, it is becoming one of the biggest competitive advantages within business.

Great teams start with an intent to serve a great purpose.

Great teaming starts when every team member feels they are a valued contributor of a winning team, doing meaningful work (i.e. serving a great purpose) in an environment of trust.

Great teaming is less about what is done or how it is done and far more about who the team is - what it stands for and how team members connect with each other.

Performance Teaming Foundations provides a framework to enable businesses to:

  • Assess an existing team’s ‘Teaming Performance’ and determine actions to improve relationships, performance and results
  • Develop new teams more easily and move them through the learning curve faster
  • Improve cross-team working, leading to greater performance throughout the business.

This is now even more relevant when teams are stretched, working in unusual surroundings and with new pressures on them. How your team works together is critical in enabling you to navigate the uncertainty and emerge in a position of strength, ready to take advantage of the opportunities that will inevitably arise.

Our Performance Teaming Foundations programme uses the powerful Performance Learning Framework© to help your team build the habits of brilliant teaming.

Harness your collective brilliance

Start building the habits of brilliant teaming and create your competitive advantage.

Programme Overview

Performance Teaming Foundations is designed to support the establishment, or re-balancing, of a team to provide a stable foundation upon which brilliant teamworking can take hold. It is supported by the development of a Team Charter that helps clarify team results, roles, relationships and resources, and creates a springboard for enhanced performance.

In this course, you will develop:

  • A meaningful purpose that energises the team
  • A unifying set of values to guide decisions, behaviours and actions
  • Greater insights and understanding of individual contributions
  • Actions to better balance the team characteristics
  • Activity flywheels that define what the team does, how and when
  • Agreements to boost performance within teams
  • Clear actions that serve improvement and growth goals.

Having your team gain clarity on its shared purpose and the contribution of each team member, then collectively develop and agree the values and standards to which you will work, is incredibly powerful. It builds ownership, connection and accountability, and can be the key competitive advantage that sustains a winning team. Harness your collective brilliance with Performance Teaming.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the Performance Teaming programme for?

Performance Teaming is designed for both functional and cross-functional business teams. It is intended to improve the relationships, performance and results of teams that share a common goal; therefore, it is equally appropriate for management or leadership teams as it is for functional departmental teams.

The ideal number of team members is 5-6, although teams of varying sizes can join the programme. There is no maximum number of team members, although you will be required to manage your team to get the best out of the programme. The course involves collaborative exercises so please ensure you are comfortable with the number of people in your team.

Why did we create this programme?

Performance Management Systems has developed Performance Teaming in association with The Performance Learning Company. 

We are passionate about helping businesses grow healthily and sustainably.

For the past 10 years, The Performance Learning Company’s Managing Director, Bob Gibbon, has developed and delivered bespoke, high-impact training programmes to help businesses achieve double-digit annual growth. Throughout this time, Bob has noticed a raft of common challenges and developed many useful frameworks that resolve these issues.

Applying this experience, we have decided to offer ‘open’ programmes that address the challenges that are common across all types of organisations that we help. These programmes will give wider and more cost-effective access to unique development programmes which are proven to boost organisational performance and results.

In addition to our insight, we undertook research to explore the challenges of our target clients and have used their feedback to build a course that will meet their specific needs, including:

  • 'The culture is the greatest challenge.'
  • 'Staff don't know what is expected of them or where the company is going.'
  • 'Team leaders tend to be promoted internally. They are very good at pushing numbers but lack the people management skills.'
  • 'A lack of engagement has been frustrating and inhibitive to growth.'
  • 'One-day training doesn't work. You can have a great day but the impact barely lasts more than a day.'
  • ‘We struggle with accountability.’

Performance Teaming aims to provide a flexible, practice-based learning programme which fits into and enhances your day-to-day work. It will help your business team collectively gain clarity and identify focused actions so you can improve relationships, performance and results by:

  • Living shared values, learning together and collaborating more productively
  • Enabling people to understand their role and how it contributes to the overall strategy
  • Employing tools that enable more productive working and more efficient completion of key tasks.

Why should you sign up?

Whether it's creating strategic agility with your customers or operational excellence within your business, collaboration within and across teams is fast becoming a key competitive advantage.

Our Performance Teaming programme arms you with the toolset, skillset and, most importantly, the mindset to WIN.
