High Performing Teams and tools you can use to get there
Stability, sustainability, and success in leadership are underpinned by your ability to work with colleagues, productively as a high-performing team. One key factor that can make a significant difference is your ability to build and nurture high-performing teams.
High-performing teams are engaged, understand and value different perspectives, work cohesively to achieve their goals and objectives, respect each other’s skills and capabilities, and celebrate successes.
Enabling high performance
High-performing teams are the backbone of successful organisations. These teams possess a unique set of characteristics that enable them to achieve exceptional performance results. They have strong collaboration, effective communication, shared goals, and a culture of trust and accountability. When leaders invest in developing high-performing teams, they invest in their ongoing success.
High-performing teams are more innovative and adaptable. They create an environment where diverse perspectives and personalities are respected, leading to creative problem-solving and supporting your ability to navigate complex challenges. In the context of Aged Care Reform, where leaders must constantly adapt to changing regulations and changing older person needs, having a team that can quickly adapt and respond can be crucial.
A high-performing team environment can create teams that are more engaged, motivated, and supportive. When you feel valued and supported within your team, you are more likely to feel committed to your work and go the extra mile. This level of engagement translates into higher levels of productivity, better outcomes for both you and your older persons, and a better work environment.
To enable you and your team to become high-performing, leaders can leverage Team Management Systems1 Tools such as the Team Management Profile (TMP) and the Linking Leader Profile (LLP) 360.
TMP helps identify the unique strengths and capabilities of each team member. By recognising and leveraging these strengths, teams can allocate tasks and responsibilities more effectively, ensuring that each member is contributing their best to the team’s goals and objectives.
The Linking Leader Profile (LLP) 360 is an evidence-based 360-degree tool.
360-degree feedback is a powerful enabler that supports you in becoming your best by providing a comprehensive and well-rounded view of your performance.
How can it help?
Unlike traditional feedback methods that rely on your self-assessment or the feedback from your immediate supervisor, the 360-degree feedback method gathers input from multiple sources, including direct reports, fellow leaders, and your supervisors. This diverse range of perspectives provides a more holistic view of your strengths and weaknesses.
