Well-functioning work teams are critical to the success of any organization, especially those that specialize in manufacturing. Management depends on teams to develop new products, achieve cost reductions, improve quality, increase productivity and solve problems. This requires that teams, and the members of teams, achieve quality outcomes quickly and effectively.
This insightful program focuses on the team player as the cornerstone of a productive and successful team – and shows how team players can complement, challenge and inspire one another to new performance heights.
Based on the principles developed by Glenn M. Parker in the best-selling self-assessment, Parker Team-Player Survey, the program depicts the four primary team-member styles:
- The Contributor
- The Collaborator
- The Communicator
- The Challenger
The team’s primary objective is to make the most of each team player’s unique perspective. To accomplish this goal, team players must learn to: identify their own style and the style of other team members, avoid carrying their style too far, learn to acknowledge the value of others’ styles, use the appropriate style to maximum team advantage, and learn to switch their style when it suits the needs of the team.
