High performing teams take work. Whether a team is highly functioning and wants to take it to the next level, or a team is in conflict needing to understand the dynamics and begin to bridge the gaps toward high performance, team building is necessary and, maybe even critical, to sustained organizational success.

Working in teams can be hard. Everyone is different. Everyone has competing priorities. Communication, albeit plentiful, is at an all time low. Trust needs to be earned and in many instances can also be very low.

So why, if working in teams is so hard, would any organization want to invest in teams?

  1. Employees are any company’s greatest asset therefore worth investing in.
  2. High performing teams create synergy and often produce better results through differing perspectives, collaboration, distribution of workloads and responsiveness.
  3. High performing teams are focussed on results, have a shared commitment and have a stronger sense of purpose.

Teams are important, therefore team building IS important.

Team building does not have to be adrenalin pumping and scary. It simply needs to focus on the core needs of the team to trigger a real behavioral shift. At Satori we work with teams in across the continuum of team effectiveness. Some teams require an intervention to really dig into the root cause of the team dynamics or dysfunction while others simply need time to build on their foundation to keep it solid. Whatever the case, Satori Consulting inc. is equipped to support your team discover a higher level of greatness.

When it’s experiential, your team develops to teach itself – we help establish a team culture that breeds greater teamwork. Our team of training experts facilitate the process and practical exercises for maximum effectiveness and learning.

Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI)

The TKI is designed to measure a person’s behavior in conflict situations. “Conflict situations” are those in which the concerns of two people appear to be incompatible. In such situations, we can describe an individual’s behavior along two dimensions: (1) assertiveness, the extent to which the person attempts to satisfy his own concerns, and (2) cooperativeness, the extent to which the person attempts to satisfy the other person’s concerns. The TKI has been the leader in conflict resolution assessment for more than thirty years.
