A Lasting Business Investment

The business value of high energy working

The real impact of Team Management Systems is in helping you to maximise performance through coaching and team development using the Profiles, models and concepts that underpin our approach.

  • higher employee engagement
  • better talent management
  • higher retention levels
  • higher motivation and team energy
  • more effective restructuring and redeployment
  • better appreciation and utilisation of diversity
  • more resilient teams
  • better morale and less conflict
  • improved communication
  • a framework for managing and leading
  • agile, better balanced teams

Personal Success

Enhanced team performance begins with the development of the individual.

The unique contribution of the Team Management Profile is to lock personal energies onto more strategic business goals. And gift the individual with greater job satisfaction.

Most people don’t naturally know where their energies lie and waste valuable years finding their way. It’s the science behind the TMS approach that short circuits this process and gets things going.

If we can increase everyone’s performance by just a small percentage, this can make the critical difference between success and failure.

And that’s our aim - to tip the balance always in favour of success, starting at the level of each individual within an organisation.

Team Performance

The Team Management Systems approach offers a powerful framework to support the creation, resilience and success of great teams.

“No one ever forgets what it feels like to be part of a great team - there is nothing like it - the energy it generates, the fun and the sense of achievement when you reach your goal. You can overcome almost any difficulty with the right team.”

So how does the Team Management Systems approach take the guesswork out of teamwork?

  • There is some pretty good science to guide you.
  • You know instantly whether a team is balanced or not
  • You get a researched model of how people and work fit together
  • You can use the models and the language to actually get things done
  • There is a way to resolve conflict, solve problems and move on
  • You link together and communicate better
  • You have a process to guide change for the better

Leadership Development

The Team Management Systems approach brings new strategic business perspectives that are especially relevant for emerging and established leaders and with the development of Board Directors.

The personal Profiles contain revelatory personal details while the overall framework offers a real opportunity for big picture questions about critical issues.

At this level it is the quality of the conversation and its power to initiate significant action that adds real and lasting strategic value.

  • What does the science of high performance tell me?
  • What should I change as a result of that knowledge?
  • What have I learnt about myself?
  • Are we doing the right things, in the right order?
  • Can we tip the balance in favour of success a bit further?
  • Can we diffuse or disentangle the things that are holding us back?
  • How can we better handle change and uncertainty?
