People find themselves on common ground, regardless of title, when they
face unfamiliar tasks. The experiential-based challenges coupled with
post-exercise assessment and discussion provide a neutral context to quickly
surface team issues, enable the group to identify and work on their most
critical obstacles, and enhance team effectiveness. Our exercises include
exciting and fun indoor business simulations and outdoor adventure-based
simulations. Our use of experiential-based learning in team building has
proven particularly effective in broadening the competencies of individual
team members and in enhancing the overall effectiveness of intact work

Examples of team situations where High Performance Team Development is
Cross-departmental team building
Team assessment and feedback
Team leader coaching
Team development is an on-going process. We customize our team building
programs to address the unique developmental needs of each particular
client team. After assessing the team needs, we draw upon a wide variety
of resources to design and develop our programs. Our programs are as diverse
and unique as the clients we serve. Some programs may include outdoor
team development exercises while others may include an indoor team business
simulation integrated with a series of focused team discussions.
We believe that a
team's ability and willingness to apply insights and learning that result
from a team building program are directly linked to the amount of follow-up
support they receive upon returning to the workplace. VisionPoint plays
an active role in designing and implementing follow-up support processes
that you can manage internally or with our help. Follow-up ensures that
your efforts and investment generate the results you anticipate.
We help managers and their teams identify and clarify the team mission,
critical success factors, team values and unique strengths when they are
newly forming or re-establishing their identity and/or focus.
We explore the dynamics of cross-departmental teamwork-What constitutes
exceptional internal service and the actions or inactions that result
in poor service. Our program designs strategically focus on numerous issues
that can inhibit or support cross-departmental teamwork. These include
building (and losing) trust, communicating needs, sharing resources, and
listening for understanding.
We assess team effectiveness, (via team interviews, and/or surveys), for
teams to take a closer look at how they're functioning at a given point
in time. Feedback reports include team strengths, areas for development,
and recommended tools to increase team effectiveness.
Team leader coaching
We provide individual consultation and coaching sessions with a team leader
to help assess problems, and plan and implement a team approach.
