4Pillars Team Coaching Programme

With over 25 years’ experience working with management teams globally, AD Consulting has a track record assisting leaders and their organisations create highly motivated thriving teams that achieve better performance and productivity

Extensive academic research has been carried out on the subject of team motivation and team effectiveness in recent years, but there is one particular piece of research we noted which we would like to share with you. It was carried out by Sprietzer & Porath in 2012, and from a survey of 1200 people across a variety of teams and industries, it found that organisations with motivated, engaged, and thriving individuals outperformed their peer groups in several areas:

  • 16% better overall performance
  • 125% less staff burnout
  • 46% more satisfied with their jobs
  • Lower health care costs as less staff missed work

Motivated thriving teams demonstrate different attitudes and behaviours with certain principles in play that significantly contribute to that team consistently achieving superior performance.

Our 4Pillar team coaching course including the team assessment diagnostics tool helps teams quickly benchmark themselves against these principles to highlight where their strengths are, and what areas could be stronger

Why is ALIGN important?

  • When a team is aligned, team members will have agreed common business objectives, and priorities, and will experience a strong sense of purpose and meaning around what they want to achieve
  • Team members will embody, and be acting out of a set of agreed core values, and behavoural norms
  • Communication between team members is more authentic with issues resolved more quickly
  • Team members want to know how they can help each other achieve their goals, as cross-functional collaboration and collective team goals are very important
  • Without alignment, the team is likely to be more disparate, with team members pulling in different directions, more focused on personal agendas, and rivalries, rather than on what is good for the team as a whole.. Cross functional collaboration is limited

Why is BELONG important?

  • Teams will experience a sense of real belonging and camaraderie when members believe they are working in a psychologically safe environment – a space where there is permission to openly communicate, where they are not afraid to say what’s not working in their areas of responsibility or in areas run by others who might be falling short
  • In a belonging environment, open communications can transform situations and enable deeper connectivity between team members because individuals feel valued, trust each other, are more prepared to take risks, and share ideas without fear of being ridiculed or interrupted – it can be the foundation for more innovation and creativity
  • Without this sense of belonging, team members are more likely to be disengaged, and will want to protect themselves from any political crossfire
  • They will be more unlikely to fully listen to one another, and be more interested in getting their own point across, or will withdraw from the process if they are not being heard
  • Individuals may also be driven by fear – fear of losing their job, fear of asking for help in case they are ridiculed, fear of being “found out” – recipes for talent churn as people look for ways to leave

Why is BREAKTHROUGH important?

  • There will be times when team members face personal challenges, set-backs, perceived limitations, or may display negative behaviours
  • Individuals in highly motivated thriving teams recognise and accept from time to time they will hit barriers, but the culture will encourage constructive feedback, and healthy conflict which they will perceive as a positive force for change
  • Team members will be more attuned and sensitive to what colleagues are experiencing, and will recognise that “clearing the air” can lead to new insights which in turn will lead to an even more deeply connected, supportive team.
  • Team members take responsibility for setbacks, and their part in any mistakes made. They will also have more clarity on how to fix problems they face as a team, because they will be more collaborative, and willing to engage in healthy conflict
  • Teams with no processes in place for constructive feedback or healthy conflict, are more likely to operate in a “blame and gossip culture” where individuals are not prepared to take issues directly to the source, and are more likely to be disengaged and withdrawn

Why is SUSTAIN important?

  • In times of business change, and uncertainty, toxic cultures can gain ground quickly as individuals start looking out for themselves more or start blaming others for problems.
  • How a team faces up to adversity will be determined by how team members respond individually and collectively to each other, and how they can support each other to sustain team performance and alignment of purpose, core values, and goals
  • Team leaders of motivated thriving teams will have prepared for these challenges with mechanisms in place like health checks, super charge protocols, and agreed norms to support them re-generate the team to better handle change.
  • Without these protocols and mechanisms, it may be more difficult to sustain a thriving environment, drive more creative thinking, retain top talent, and reduce absenteeism,
