Team Cohesiveness

Cohesiveness Interventions

The risk of cohesiveness challenges is ever present where individuals interact. Not to be left out, even the schizophrenic has internal conflicts. On a serious note, a lack of understanding and cohesiveness is a major drain on productivity and job satisfaction in the work environment. Many organizations fail to count the cost of mis-communication, disengagement, open conflict, mistrust and a lack of shared commitment in their entities.

Over the past several decades, the DISC-based framework and its refinements have been shown to be not only the most easily understood and implemented solution but it is also the intervention that guarantees lasting impact on participants.

The “Success with People” framework is the highest refinement of the Jungian DISC principles. Invariably persons involved in Success with People (SWP) interventions come to “So that is why!”, “Now I understand” and “That explains it” conclusions. They quickly recognize that the challenges that they are having in relating to some individuals is directly linked to differences in behavioural preferences. Simultaneously, they also learn that no behavioural style is better or worse than the other, they are just different.

These distinctions are based on the learning of the language of behaviours. Armed with this new language, communication is dramatically improved as people are now communicated to in a tongue and tone with which they are comfortable. Even chronic trouble-makers are stopped in their tracks when the “Success with People” framework is used to smilingly point to their use of an inappropriate style.

SWP is as much fun as it is effective. It is guaranteed to significantly improve team cohesiveness and to reduce the level of mistrust and other productivity sapping behaviours. The principles resonate to such a great depth that participants cannot help but apply them in their lives. This is guaranteed without exception!

The SWP intervention is underpinned by the use of Extended DISC solutions for managing individuals, teams and organizations. This includes completion of the Extended DISC Personal Analysis. The unique Extended DISC Team Analysis with its Name Map and Scorecard features add objective rigour to the process.

The consistent experience is that once the Team Maps are shared, team members immediately drop their defences and huge opportunities for breakthrough coaching become available to the Success with People trained experts who lead the interventions.

Logistically, team members take 10 – 15 minutes to complete their Extended DISC Personal Analysis online prior to a “Success with People in Teams” workshop (7 contact hours). This is followed by a series of 2-hour coaching sessions. (The number of sessions depends on the issue and responsiveness of the team).

Success with People Team Cohesiveness interventions are guaranteed to produce immediate, identifiable behaviour modification. E-mail now for a FREE consultation: trevor.smith@extendeddisc.com
