As a manager or team leader one of your greatest challenges lies in successfully managing your team for peak performance. Studies have shown that the 3 things needed to achieve great performance, employee engagement and overall fulfillment are autonomy, mastery and purpose. A great team leader knows exactly how to empower his or her team members as individuals to do what they do best. If I give the right job to the right person it will get done with great effectiveness. It all starts with knowing your team members’ strengths and in some cases also their weaknesses.
The single most important driver in a team is whether or not people feel that their strengths are in play. When working as a team, it is important for members of the team to know their different roles. Equally important to this is for team members to know each other’s strengths. The best teams are the ones that make use of their members in the areas of their strengths. According to Gallup research, the teams where employees say they have the opportunity to do what they do best every day, massively and consistently outperform those teams that do not. There are no such things as great companies, only great teams
Great teams are built with great individuals. The best way to transform into a “strength’s based” company is to start with the “self”, as the airlines say: “put your own oxygen mask on first”. Don’t wait for the perfect job to come along. Craft your job to play according to your strengths. You will make your greatest contribution to a team in the area where you bring your strengths to the table. We work with individuals and help them discover, understand and manage their strengths in order to serve their teams more efficiently.
Our work with teams come together with these 3 elements. Like a sandwich, our approach works from the top to bottom and from the bottom to the top with all the substance in between. The goal is team cohesion and we understand that this can only occur on a personal level
Sure team building activities are fun ,but are you wasting a lot of resources on companies that offer team building activities that are just that… fun.
The most successful team building activities should be linked right back to the work environment. Yes sure you want to get out of the office and have fun, but if you pay somebody who specializes in creating fun recreational activities with no long term strategies you are throwing money down the drain, yet leaving your teams needs unmet.
At the Identity Entity every activity is designed with a long-term strategy in mind. Our belief is that there is an “I” in team. It is “my” responsibility as a team member to bring my best talents and strengths to the table. Our activities aim not only to have team members interact with each other, but also to make them acutely aware of their uniqueness.
People tend to get along well with people who are the same as they. The truth however is that a team of people who are the same, often get outperformed by the teams that are diverse. The greatest teams are those who have different members who have learnt to work together in synergy.
Our team building activities are designed with specific goals in mind. We do NOT follow a one-size-fits-all approach.
The first goal is to develop self-awareness to ones own set of talent
