Team Development

Unleashing Collective Strengths

Typical Challenges for Teams

Teams are facing more challenges than ever before. Typical issues that undermine team effectiveness include:


  • Problematic matrix structures
  • Collaboration failures – internally and with external partners
  • Working in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world
  • Rapidly changing team members and goals
  • Virtual teams – and often multi-cultural
  • Poor team processes
  • Insufficient attention given to team development

Our Facilitation Principles

Every team facilitation project is different. The objectives, the culture and the dynamics are essential factors for every team. The hallmarks of our work include:

  • Getting a strong understanding of all the relevant issues and stakeholders
  • Creating an environment where day to day issues can be put aside
  • Facilitation techniques that encourage and enable creative thinking and fresh perspectives
  • Threading creativity and fun through the day according to the subject in hand
  • Enabling everyone to contribute, challenge and collaborate in a safe environment 

Examples of our work

Board members defining a number of leadership behaviours for the organisation

Leadership team analysing the business issues and designing a major re-organisation

Bringing two teams together to agree on new working practices

Enabling senior teams in the public sector to plan for strategic change including mergers of regions and working in a collaborative partnership


It can be difficult to get a subjective view when you are living with the day-to-day issues.

Talent for Growth facilitated a highly effective team development event for the top team that enabled us to focus our discussions and create a business review tool that we still use today.
