Case Study on Team Building Ideas and Activities:
One Example of How a Team Building Program Creates Organizational Success
A financial company was switching leaders between two departments. As result of the switching, transition issues, demanding goals, inefficient processes, long hours and competition were all creating poor performance and low morale in these two groups.
The following strategies were used to build the Emotional Intelligence within the groups, and a result, function better as inter-related teams.
* Individual coaching with each leader
* Group coaching with the two leaders
* Four facilitated team sessions with their combined teams
* Leadership Skills Assessment focusing on Inventory of Leadership Styles (ILS) and
the Organizational Climate
Survey (OCS): pre-assessment and post-assessment over a four month time period.
The teams identified various changes in work flow patterns which made their loan process more streamlined and customer-focused. In addition, the leaders were able to speak about issues that had previously been unclear. The leaders became: approachable, vulnerable, empathic and caring as to what their teams were experiencing. As a result, the team members felt heard, honored, supported and outperformed their
forecast for the quarter.
