Team Building, Development, & Cultural Transformation

Team Building

teamResearch consistently shows that a team will produce better results than an individual. But it is each individual’s contribution that produces the team result. The following are some questions to consider:

  • How is your organization performing?
  • Do you have a strong team culture?
  • Do you focus on both individual and team development?

enSpirit, llc. can assist you in the creation and development of high performance, results driven teams. We realize that no two companies are exactly the same; therefore, we will customize services based on your organization’s specific needs. We will utilize a variety of tools and services to enhance the effectiveness of your team, thereby improving performance. Team building refers to the selection, development, and collective motivation of results-oriented teams. Your team will be involved in a process of “team assessment” in order to gauge the team’s effectiveness and thereby improve performance.

The following are some examples of possible topics of focus:

  • Clarifying goals, building a foundation of trust among team members, and focusing on becoming a results-oriented team
  • Identifying the inhibitors to teamwork and removing or overcoming them, or if they cannot be removed, mitigating their negative effect on the team
  • Assessing your team’s current strengths and weaknesses
  • Identification of each team member’s strengths and building on those strengths
  • Identification of gaps between the desired state and the actual state
  • Identification and implementation of a gap-closure strategy

Cultural Transformation

Every organization has a culture. The question is whether your organization’s culture is supporting or hindering the ability to achieve its strategies and goals, and the ongoing transformation into a high-performance organization. Do you know how to manage your culture and how to pinpoint areas that need to be enhanced?

We, at enSpirit, llc., have recently incorporated a tool (Denison Model) that effectively assists companies in assessing and evaluating how effective their cultural environment is at reaching their desired performance level. Through a short sixty question survey, companies and individuals are able to obtain an accurate analysis concerning the four major traits as defined by the Denison Model. This tool benchmarks your organization’s performance with the scores of over 1000 other organizations. It highlights where your company may be struggling and targets one of twelve key indexes as to truly identify where your company’s money, time, and energy needs to be focused. Especially in this time of tight economics, the Denison Model takes the guess work out of where companies and organizations need to focus their investments.
