We help teams perform together at a higher level—regardless if your team members are dispersed around the globe, or located in the same office.
Our Driving Team Performance learning journey is specially developed to determine and analyze core team issues and develop an action plan to drive a higher level of team performance with defined timelines and responsibilities.
Every individual who partakes in the Driving Team Performance learning journey begins by taking the GlobeSmart Profile survey, which determines an individual’s work style. Understanding how each individual on a team works is the first step to improving the performance of the team overall.
Team members take the Global Team Assessment, which determines team strengths, weaknesses, and priority areas for action. It allows for honest, anonymous feedback, which is crucial to uncovering elements that are holding a team back from performing at their optimal level.
Our consultants work with the team leads to debrief assessment results and co-create a strategy. Team leads help contextualize findings by providing further insight into team dynamics. The results of this debrief act as the foundation of the Driving Team Performance learning session.
Team members come together for a working session led by our expert consultants. This session includes: building a shared vision, developing cross-cultural competency, team building through various activities, co-authoring action steps to improve team performance, and creating support mechanisms to measure impact and enable sustainability.
6-12 months after the initial program takes place, consultants follow-up with another Global Team Assessment. The results of the assessment help team leads understand the progress made, and what still needs to be worked on to help the team continue to improve their performance.
The program has been a turning point for our team and also for me in understanding how I need to adapt to be the leader they need. This workshop really opens your eyes.

When leading a global matrixed team, there are many factors that can contribute to success. Cross-cultural competence and communication skills are certainly necessary components, but other issues could still derail a team’s hard work. Leaders – or potential leaders – of any global, matrixed, newly formed team should ask themselves, “Is this team set up for success?”
