A winning team is a highly motivated one where every member is performing in unison at a high level. Results are being achieved and even exceeded and there is trust, loyalty, openness and a winning environment.  Not all teams get to this level and when they do it is not often sustainable.  The team manager or team member may move on or be promoted, a re structure make take place or role expectations may change.  This can leave the team in turmoil resulting in a lack of focus, direction and even motivation.  Creating and maintaining a cohesive winning team can take a lot of work and needs to be an ongoing focus not just a one off event.  Mapping motivation for a high performing team is one way to really energise the team by fostering self awareness of what motivates each individual at work and colleagues we work with.  Did you know, research shows that attitude and motivation can account for more

Targeted goal setting and planning

Knowing where you and your team or organisation are going is imperative to the direction and action you take!

How often do we caught up in the “doing” and not stop and evaluate where we need to go as a team.  Nearly all of the highest performing teams we work with have their own team goals that are aligned with that of the organisation or business.  Having success outcomes and goals workshopped as a team gets everyone involved and people naturally like to own what we co-create. It makes sense to identify what the team want to achieve as a whole and then break it down into a digestible plan that involves each team member and allows their contribution to play on their strengths where possible.
