Create a Winning Team

Helping teams collaborate well, communicate better and write a successful future

A program that gets to the heart of what makes teams tick

Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
Michael Jordan

Research shows that the cognitive knowledge and capabilities of a team only contribute to 25% of a team’s performance. The other 75% is determined by interpersonal communication and collaboration.

Creating a Winning Team is an inspirational development program that trains leaders and their teams to improve their collaboration, communication and, ultimately, their performance.

Creating a Winning Team brings to life to the vision of developing strong internal partnerships within an open, transparent, and innovative organisation. After training, team members and leaders feel able to take full responsibility for their current results and processes and feel inspired to become co-authors of a successful future.

Who this program is for

This program has been specifically designed and tailored to the needs of leaders and members of project teams of all sizes, from larger CPD matrix teams to smaller local teams.

What to expect on this program

The Create a Winning Team program is a model of excellence, in that it has proven itself with many teams both inside and outside of TNM Coaching.

The program’s objective is to create the solid foundations necessary for teams to develop and sustain top performance. The training supports teams in mobilising themselves to take full ownership of their current and future challenges while working in complex environments by:

Enhancing team members’ knowledge and insights around three key elements:

  • Team wisdom
  • Team dysfunctions
  • Team development phases

Training team leaders and members to deal effectively with specific challenges:

  • Conflict resolution
  • Cultural differences
  • The overall purpose, context and communication
  • Shared language and mental models
  • Challenging the team’s core purpose
  • Creating a highly ambitious goal statement for the future

Learning outcomes

As a result of active participation in the program, teams and their leaders:

  • Become a truly integrated team
  • Perform at a higher level because of the more effective behaviour of team leaders and members
  • Develop better interpersonal relations between various disciplines in the team
  • Are capable of authentic, open and transparent communication and collaboration
  • Have a greater awareness of each team member’s specific role and responsibilities, and of their value to the team and the organisation.
  • Are capable of dealing with a range of challenges

How participants learn

Creating a Winning Team facilitates insight and action-based learning through short presentations, DVD showcases, interactive workshops and breakout exercises, as well as personal and group reflection.

Individual and group insight is enhanced by meaningful feedback from facilitators, and, as far as possible, case studies and breakout exercises are tailored to the daily realities of participants. This learning approach develops self-awareness for teams and individuals, provides opportunities to practice new skills, and increases participants’ self-confidence.

The modular design includes:

  • Three days of face-to-face training
  • Optional Team Leadership Skills module
  • Optional Leading & Participating in Virtual or Remote Teams module
  • Follow-up coaching

The follow-up coaching occurs in combination with the assignment of real tasks or challenges that are related to a team’s development process. These can then be shared and discussed during coaching for enhanced experiential learning.

Module 1: Creating a Winning Team
This three-day, face-to-face module covers the key elements of high-performing teams. The module is tailored to focus on real team issues for maximum engagement.

This offsite module effectively combines classroom training with fun and relevant activities that support teams in identifying and overcoming any dysfunctional aspects of teamwork.

Facilitators use a combination of short presentations, video examples, group and sub-group exercises, and development workshops to get the team on the right track.

Module 2: Team Leadership Skills (OPTIONAL)
This module is aimed at team and project leaders who are part of a larger project organisation.

The content covers key features of effective team leadership including communication skills, group facilitation, handling resistance, dealing with conflict, and key elements of leading virtual and remote teams.

Ideally, the training is conducted over two days face-to-face with an evening program on the first day. This module is highly interactive with many opportunities to practice team leadership and facilitation skills.

Module 3: Leading and Participating in Virtual or Remote Teams (OPTIONAL)
This module is aimed at team members and leaders who are part of a virtual or remote team.

It is delivered via three 90-minute sessions and builds on the content and insights from Modules 1 and 2. It engages both leaders and their teams in handling the specific challenges and barriers that are part of their daily reality. It also features tips, techniques and skills for leading and participating in virtual meetings and includes a model virtual meeting.

Module 4: Follow-up Team Coaching
A mix of follow-up coaching solutions supports the program to enhance the impact of the first module and ensure that key learning, insights, and commitments to new behaviours are embedded. This includes:

1. Executive Coaching
The role of the leader has a decisive impact on the team’s success. Furthermore, the involvement of the leader before, during, and after the training modules directly impacts how team members apply their learning and adhere to commitments. Coaching in this context is not a ‘fix it’ solution: it provides a support structure and ensures that sufficient attention is given to the process of leadership, team management, and collaboration within the team.

2. On-the-job Coaching
This involves a mix of regular face-to-face and virtual coaching sessions to enhance the performance of team members. It can also include real-time observation followed by direct feedback, as well as observation of virtual team meetings.

3. Personal Coaching
TNM has a pool of experienced, credentialed coaches to support the personal development of individual team members in transferring the knowledge acquired during the program into their daily practice and, as a result, strengthen the team overall.

Participants will benefit from

  • Fun, relaxed and interactive sessions that go beyond standard professional development programs
  • Highly experienced trainers with decades of leadership and coaching experience in an industry relevant to them
  • A holistic approach that develops their mind, soul and spirit
  • Social learning and support from other participants
  • Learning that fits within a tailored development program
