Our approach

Discover our high performing teams framework

  • Team mind

    Team mind refers to the ‘shared thinking’ within the team. In high performing teams, members know how their team works best together. They are able to read new situations and apply existing knowledge. To keep improving, teams need to learn and, and just like individuals, a team’s ‘mind’ needs to be stretched.

  • Team emotion

    Team emotion refers to how team members feel about each other, and their team as a whole. High performing teams have high levels of mutual trust. They feel fully engaged with the team, successfully resolve conflict and make superior decisions as a result of capitalising on knowledge held by all team members.

  • Team process

    Team process refers to what the team does that allows them to continuously adapt and perform at a high level. This is despite changes in the internal and external environment. High performing teams effectively share information, distribute workload and anticipate the needs and actions of other team members.

  • Team leadership

    Team leadership refers to the formal and informal leadership capabilities within the team. In high performing teams, leadership responsibility shifts from formal leaders to informal leaders according to the task and skills of team members. Team Leadership captures the vision, support and challenge provided.

  • Team edge

    Team edge refers to the team’s ability to perform under pressure. Resilient teams can perform in the most difficult circumstances by remaining collectively confident, focused, determined and controlled under pressure. These teams build on positive momentum or change direction when the team is in a downward spiral.
