High-Performance Teamwork

Most organizations get results and accomplish important tasks, projects, and strategies using teams and work groups. However, many teams do not function at peak levels, even though they have the potential to do so. We understand that effective teamwork can be challenging to attain. CMOE’s High-Performance Teamwork workshop gives teams or team leaders the skills and tools they need to address and overcome many common team issues:

  • Establishing clear goals and roles
  • Communication and information flow
  • Cohesiveness and unity
  • Trust
  • Innovation and creativity
  • Maximizing resources
  • Accountability
  • Productivity and efficiency

High-Performance Teamwork is a powerful, experience-based workshop that helps participants build and sustain a high-performance team, as well as helping the individual team member or leader develop teamwork skills. The experiential nature of the training, combined with sound adult-learning methods, ensures an exciting and memorable event where participants focus on teamwork skills that are useful and can be applied to their specific teams. Participants leave the learning experience with an integrated set of skills, knowledge, and plans to renew team spirit, enhance performance, and improve team leadership. When these skills are applied, teams become stronger, more productive, and more aligned in purpose than ever before.

Objectives & Outcomes

The High-Performance Teamwork workshop helps participants do the following:

  • Build awareness about the critical ingredients needed to build a highly effective team.
  • Diagnose the strengths and weaknesses of their own team and develop solutions to team challenges.
  • Explore strategies and tools that will enhance the effectiveness of their team.
  • Assess their roles as team members or leaders and their overall contribution to the team’s effectiveness.
  • Expand their interest in and commitment to the practices and principles of effective teamwork.

Our Approach

The High-Performance Teamwork learning event is tailored for intact teams, cross-functional teams, team leaders, or a mixed group of individuals. Each workshop is customized to address precise team challenges and needs. The experiential nature of the workshop exercises, case studies, assessments, tools, and discussions, combined with the program content, allows participants to focus their attention on the team’s opportunities for improvement as well as team strengths that can be leveraged. In this workshop, participants don’t just learn important team skills—they also spend time addressing real team issues and developing solutions and plans to improve the team’s performance. The comprehensive team assessment taken prior to the event supports the learning and pinpoints specific data about the inner workings and overall health of the participants’ teams.

High-Performance Teamwork is based on extensive and ongoing research and our book, The Team Approach: With Teamwork Anything Is Possible, which was written by Steven J. Stowell, Ph.D. (CMOE’s Founder and President) and Stephanie S. Mead, MBA (CMOE’s Senior Vice President).
