Why Courageous Teams Matters:

To stay competitive in today's rapidly changing economy, teams need to work together, productively, efficiently, and be able to communicate effectively. Made For More works with teams to explore how they operate, communicate, and navigate changes, as well as develop team norms to align with the vision values of the business. We work with teams to facilitate discussions around some of the barriers to improving communication, accountability and taking teams to that next high-performing level.

What this means is that individual personal leadership accountability is more important than ever. Leadership cohorts being able to work across disciplinary unity to work collaboratively and cohesively is imperative. Individuals understanding the impact of their performance on the overall team performance and committing to that outcome is key to high achieving workplace culture.

Leaders often report they're sick of breaking down silos, being the conduit between business units or departments. Playing school yard referee to individual staff members. It's time for a change.

 

Having teams who are open, honest, have robust relationships are aligned to the future business direction and have clear lines of communication means:

  • Communicating effectively with influence and impact

  • Collaboration across the business

  • Focus on performance

  • Personal Leadership Accountability, and

Performance 

Everyone wants high-performing teams. Often there's too much time spent on team bonding, rather than team building. Understanding the dynamics of a team, individual and team strengths are what gets results. High-performing teams maintain and champion a passion for their brand, team, and clients.

Productivity

As the pace and nature of change is continually increasing globally, business leaders must navigate the complexities of technological advancement, social inter-connectivity and massively accelerating change while balancing empathy and productivity Bringing joy to customers and growing their teams and business/organisation for greater connection.

Communication

Teams are comfortable enough to have robust conversations within their own team and across business units. Understanding how to communicate with each other and to work coherently and productively is a key element of courageous teams.

Connectability

In a time of texting, tweeting, and tagging, human connection has never been more important. On average people spend a third of their life at work, making sure their teams are connected as human beings rather than human doings is the combination or communication and trust between individuals and between teams.

Alignment

Teams are often aware of company vision and values but don't spend enough time understanding what that means for the individual and as a team. How do their team values align with the overall business values? Understanding how teams fit into the bigger picture is imperative when it comes to high-performing teams. 

Accountability

Being individually accountable to the team's performance, communication, and reputation ties into the overall understanding of business alignment and trust between peers and leaders.

Trust

In today's environment trust can make or break a team. More importantly, a teams' trust in their leaders to be able to support them when needed, provide transparency, and direction. Trust promotes collaboration and creativity. Failure of leadership makes distrust the default.

Achievability

Being able to work together toward a common goal or set of goals, with the aim of high performance, consistent focus can turn a mediocre team into a high performing.

Ally took us on such a great personal and professional journey. I am beginning a new career and Ally gave me the tools to feel confident and assertive. We learnt a lot about our individual personalities and how this can help us be productive and successful in the workplace. Ally was engaging and took the time to get to know us before the course which made it feel really personal. I walked out of the classroom each day with my head held high and my confidence boosted. A big thank you. I am no longer afraid to have courageous conversations!

Ally is an authentic and engaging leadership coach with so much passion for what she does. Having heard her speak previously at a SheCreates event, we engaged Ally on behalf of Spence Club Inc to speak to our members about the Love Languages of Leadership. Hosted on the last day of a state-wide lockdown, the event was such a success, with members still referring to the learnings of the session and sharing what they learned with others. Ally brings so much enthusiasm to any workshop she delivers, and has no problem in keeping her audience captivated throughout. We were thrilled to be joined by her and look forward to hearing her speak at future events, each which offer bite-sized pieces of take-away information that's easy to remember and implement in our day-today lives. Thank you, Ally, from all of us at Spence Club!
