“The collaboration mapping tools we used with TBG gave us a bigger perspective of our organization and that allowed us to rethink how we do business. Our reality didn’t match our organizational chart and reporting structures. We reorganized ourselves in a way that we are able to produce our goals faster and better.”
“The high-performance team assessment called TRI (Team Resonance ImagingTM) provided us with a true scorecard of how well we were working together. The day of the offsite, when we looked at our results, was transformational for our team. That day, we committed to becoming a high-performance team, and with the help of TBG team, we had a roadmap for how to do it. We liked the systematic approach to team development that they took and the customization provided by TBG team to meet us exactly where we were.”
“We knew we needed more transparency but were concerned about how much transparency we really need. We liked the gradual approach of culture change proposed by TBG team. This allowed us to grow into it at our own pace. We can say with confidence a year later that culture change is not an overnight task but very doable using the systematic approach of TBG team.”
“Our new reporting matrix and transversal collaboration created a great deal of confusion and frustration. We no longer knew who was responsible for what. We had so many side projects that we had no time to deal with our primary work. Prioritizing was painful. Our performance results were dropping, and discussing these topics became very sensitive. We experienced finger-pointing and frustration.
We partnered with TBG to understand why we had these painful issues, how to fix them and create new engagement rules to move forward. TBG team helped us create clear communication agreements, expectations, clear roles and responsibilities, feedback loops, and a new way of collaborating together.”
“We were always frustrated with the silos in our organizations. We were surprised to see how the silos in our own leadership team were the root cause of the silos in the rest of our organization. We were even more surprised to see how our organization, by design, was structured in a way that made silos inevitable.
After mapping out our collaboration maps with TBG, we created easy access to resources and a communication platform that allows us all to work as one team. We were no longer subject to the old paradigms we’d inherited, but realized we had the power to create what we really needed. We felt free of our old cultural constraints.”
“We considered ourselves a strong team, having great relationships with each other, when we started working with TBG. What we didn’t see was that we were doing everything possible to avoid conflict and the risk of losing those great relationships. The cost to our team was huge in accomplishing business results.
In working with TBG we learned how to have the difficult conversations and hold each other accountable, and to provide constructive feedback in a way that elevates our team members. Now we produce better business results while having more authentic relationships in our team.”
“For the first time in our careers we took a day to explore the individual and collective leadership gifts of our team. We then aligned those gifts and talents with our roles and our responsibilities on the team. We were surprised to discover how much more talent we had on our team than we knew about.”
“The one hour we took to appreciate our leadership team members was transformational for our team. We realized that we hadn’t been taking the time to connect to one another in a positive way. We used to be filled with complaints and blame, which eventually made our team morale constantly down. We learned that our whole organizational culture starts with us, and that felt empowering.”
“We were struggling to quickly move important decisions through our leadership team. We hired TBG team to help us create an effective decision-making process. We expected a better process to come out of it. But we didn’t actually believe we would make three of the decisions we’d been sitting on for almost a year.
During a one-day offsite with TBG, we got to make all three decisions, and at the same time we created a custom decision model that has worked for us. We felt liberated.”
“We weren’t quite sure, at first, how to design new systems for our team, so that we could become a high-performance leadership team. Systems weren’t very clear to us. With simple initiatives created by TBG, we started to create new ways of working, new team agreements, and processes that allowed us to make quicker decisions and leverage multiple perspectives from all stakeholders.”
