New Team Alignment enables teams to move into effective action
quickly by creating more trusting relationships and partnerships,
enhancing team and individual performance, supporting group identity that is
aligned with the company culture and supports the business strategy,
and developing a shared understanding of direction for the team members.
When new teams are formed through mergers or reorganizations, members
generally experience fear and distrust. They have many questions about
who their new leader and members are and how the new team will operate.
Our approach is to deal with fears and other issues up front; to create
shared understanding of team norms, leader and member roles and
responsibilities; and to understand the team's direction, objectives,
timelines, and deliverables. Alignment on these issues creates the
foundation for strategic planning and effective action.
