Team Skills Training
Business Challenge:
Team-based work is everywhere. From organizational restructuring around teams, to team projects, to cross-functional task forces, effective teamwork is becoming increasingly critical for business success. A good team results in the whole being greater than the sum of its parts; however, an ineffective team very often leads to the whole being less than the sum of its parts. How would you describe your team? How would you describe your own team skills? Is there room for improvement?


The purpose of the Team Skills Training solution is to introduce various skills and tools for effective team performance which, in turn, impact the team's and, thus, the organization's bottom-line performance. Given that adults learn by doing, participants practice using these tools and skills by applying them to real business challenges during the Team Skills Training Program . Skill selection is based upon the training needs of team members (which can be objectively assessed via EDI's perceptionplusTEAM™ multi-rater feedback team survey) and may include, but not be limited to, the following:
  • Team problem solving
  • Team decision making
  • Team conflict management
  • Team communication
  • Team project management

Benefits and Outcomes:

Team Skills Training is an excellent solution for the following business challenges:
  • When an organization needs/wants to shift from a hierarchical structure to a team-based structure
  • When a cross-functional team is formed to address a specific business issue, and the team members have little or no experience working on teams and/or with each other 
  • When a current team acts more like a group of mavericks than a team, even though teamwork is critical to the group's success
