How to Increase Organizational Performance, Communication, and Cohesion

The highest-performing organizations find and attract; train and develop; empower and support; and push and praise great people. They emphasize professional and personal development.

Elite teams promote shared ownership, individual responsibility, and collective accountability by clearly establishing each team member’s role, creating buy-in and believe-in with their role, and rewarding those that star in their role.

The key to raising organizational performance and building a winning culture is a result of how well your teams master these five fundamentals:

  1. Belief
  2. Unselfishness
  3. Role Clarity
  4. Communication
  5. Cohesion

An organization’s leadership team has one primary job: to find out what each team member does well and best utilize that skill set for the team’s benefit. They understand the power of “what drives you needs to be good for us, and what drives us needs to be good for you.” And they know that a motivated, happy, engaged team member directly affects other aspects of the business.

This program is a must-attend for any team that aspires to:

  • Empower each team member to be consistently exceptional
  • Emphasize the value of diversity, open-mindedness, and inclusion
  • Eliminate entitlement, selfishness, and complacency
  • Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of communication
  • Deliver honest, real-time feedback to heighten competence

This program is ideal for the team looking to improve their organizational performance and culture. (company-wide events, all-hands meetings, teambuilding events, leaders, HR departments)

Why this program really works:

Building a winning team and championship caliber culture is hard. If it was easy, everyone would do it! As your organization grows, it becomes increasingly more challenging to ‘win the war on talent’, put people in the right positions, and maximize everyone’s contribution. It’s vital to keep an eye out for low-performing individuals with unfavorable attitudes as they send a ripple of bad effects through your organization’s environment.

So many organizations today have team members that:

  • Stop taking pride in their work (or worse, do a form of Quiet Quitting).
  • Aren’t actively looking for opportunities to help their teammates.
  • Lack engagement – show up late and don’t actively participate.
  • Hold themselves back from fear of making mistakes.
  • Care more about their own quota than meeting the team’s goals.

During Alan’s tenure as an internationally renowned basketball performance coach, he observed firsthand the recipe for turning great individuals into great teams and how to create a culture that people want to be a part of (and don’t want to leave).

When team members believe in the mission of their organization and believe in their role in fulfilling that mission, you don’t just get buy-in; you get believe-in. This also gets every team member to think selflessly and care about not only their own needs but of the needs of their teammates as well. This ensures relationships are strengthened, balls rarely get dropped, and everyone feels the support they need from the group to do their best work.

Success Simplified: Alan’s Three Fundamentals of Organizational Performance

Role Clarity. Alan will show you why everyone on your team – regardless of title, tenure, or position – needs to know their role, needs to embrace their role, and needs to star in their role to the best of their ability consistently. He will also share the importance of respecting, valuing, and appreciating everyone else’s role.

Accountability. Alan will make sure everyone knows that holding someone accountable is something you do for them; not something you do to them. That holding a teammate accountable to a high standard of excellence is a gift and shows that you care (about them and about the team).

Communication. Alan will explain how you are always communicating – even when you aren’t saying anything.! As leaders and teammates, you communicate non-verbally (facial expressions, body language, tonality) and you communicate unconsciously (the messages that underpin what you say). Most importantly, we can’t forget that it’s not what we say… it’s what they hear that really matters.

Alan dissects these fundamentals with the expertise of a veteran coach that clearly understands the principles that turn great individuals into great teams. Your organization will face tough times at some point. Your ability to flourish and thrive will depend on your collective ability to stick together. Consistent team building, open and honest feedback, as well as taking time to celebrate progress is the glue that holds teams together as they work through challenges and change.

Teambuilding at Its Best

This program cuts right to the chase of how to build high-performing teams. Alan simplifies success by sharing proven principles with compelling stories and light-hearted humor. Attendees will be educated, entertained, and engaged.
