GBL was asked to provide some development support for the Finance Team of an international software company in Germany. Both HR and the team manager thought the team was operating below its potential and seemed to be stuck. The enquiry with each individual member conducted ahead of the first team session showed an awareness for their insular state and a lack of “team spirit”. Their office atmosphere was described as being cool, quiet and contained.
The enquiry also showed a willingness for shift that would raise individual levels of wellbeing as well as productivity. The team aspired to become a more high performing team built on a basis of mutual respect and trust.
I am very pleased with the whole team development journey. I really think the team has made considerable progress.
