The cost of poor team performance
Sadly, the experience of poor team performance is something we've all encountered. An ineffective team doesn't work well together, is more focused on personal success, so doesn't share information, which undermines the productivity and results that could be achieved if everyone was working together and supporting each other. At its worst a poor team becomes dysfunctional with no trust between colleagues, petty dramas erupt into full blown conflict, which is a huge drain on the companies time and resources as managers have to focus their attention on performance management, instead of strategic goals. Employees feel demoralised and demotivated - which ultimately effects the customers and therefore impacts revenue.
"Not finance, not strategy, not technology. It's teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it's so powerful and so rare."
- Patrick Lencioni

"Felicity worked with our team for 18 months, acting as our team coach. She instantly built a strong rapport with each of us and worked with our whole team (a team of 12) individually and respectfully. She spent time and effort in learning and understanding each of our needs and built techniques and strategies around these to help us all develop emotionally and professionally within the office. Felicity has been the lead commander in helping us as a team embrace positive conflict and change the culture in the office to one of a healthier functioning group. I thoroughly enjoy the work and time I have with Felicity and always find the comments and suggestions she gives me insightful, encouraging and developmental. I would thoroughly recommend Felicity's services to your team and/or workplace and am confident that she could help bring teams together and to help each staff member grow individually within their role."
