Building Better Teams:

Engage, Empower, Unite, Deliver

“The team development event really opened our eyes to the latent talents in the team. We can’t thank you enough for really challenging us and helping us to break some age old orthodoxies that were holding us back. Understanding and maximising the benefits of our strengths and creativity has really helped us to smash our self-imposed ceiling to take the business to a whole new level.”
Alison Bowcott-McGrath, Managing Director, Bo-Concepts

Our team development interventions are renowned for being engaging, revealing and for helping teams to truly challenge. "the way we do things around here". Too often, teambuilding days are little more than ‘edu-tainment’ centred around a range of activities, designed to let the participants let off steam and have a bit of fun. Within a week, most of what’s been learnt has been left in the conference room, with little impact being made on the culture of the workplace or the performance of the team.

Ants working as a teamAt Morgan James, we only deliver team development programmes for organisations that are truly committed to change. We recognise that developing a high performing team takes commitment from the top and from the team itself. It takes courage to expose your weaknesses. If you have a true desire to learn and grow and a willingness to focus on group success rather than individual glory, then we’d love to help you.

Our bespoke programmes help you through that transition and will support you to:

  • Build a greater awareness of your individual and team strengths and how to play to them
  • Clarify, and work towards, delivering common goals and objectives
  • Develop a more effective and flexible communication style
  • Learn how to negotiate and influence others effectively
  • Understand the team development process
  • Understand the importance of paying attention to all 3 agendas: Strategic, emotional and behavioural, to develop a truly engaged team
  • Positively support and challenge each other to deliver exceptional performance

We draw on a wide range of tools including: 360° feedback; behavioural profiling; climate and team engagement surveys; high impact interactive business simulations and simple, practical models to ensure that the learning is captured and applied back to work. We’ll also ensure that you develop an action plan and schedule review sessions to cement the learning and apply it back in the work environment.
