Team Alignment Leads to High Levels of Performance

When everyone in the team is aligned, “on the same page”, all team members are clear about what they are doing and why they are doing it and are committed to fulfilling their responsibilities to achieve the team’s goals.  As a result, highly aligned teams become high performing teams.

This level of alignment can only be achieved when there is a high level of trust in the team, because only when there is trust will team members have the robust conversations they must have to achieve a high level of alignment.

The assessment will accurately pinpoint exactly which level of alignment currently exists in the team. Is the team in the bottom quartile (25% of all teams), the second, third or top quartile?  Our research has also identified the specific trust-building behaviours needed to increase alignment and move a team to higher levels of performance. 

High-performance teams outperform other similar teams and outperform what you would expect of the team given the make-up of the team.  A champion team will outperform a team of individual champions!
