Technology for Individual Transformations to Rework a whole unit
It is common in the workplace to experience clashes personally, creatively and directionally which is almost always guaranteed to lead to negativity, bad vibes and a workforce that is certainly not effective. Many co-workers end up in conflict as they do not understand the motives and methods of others and fail to compromise or see the other person’s point of view. In order for a team to be successful, there needs to be common ground and a mutual understanding of the goal and how to achieve it.
Five behaviours is software designed and tailored to give you and your team the means to communicate more effectively and strengthen your unit, bringing your team to a higher level of efficiency. You can now avoid wasting time discussing rights and wrongs, getting straight to the root and making better and faster decisions. Five behaviours uses a model that works to improve five key factors in team success; trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results. But how can it benefit you? The software allows you to learn about yourself and how you operate in the working environment, as well as understanding the actions and behaviour of others – providing clarity. This gives teams insight, the ability to overcome conflict as well as being able to compromise and see other perspectives. Having different angles in your team can really drive it forward to success.
Trust is the foundation and necessary ingredient of any successful partnership. Five behaviours opens up communication, respect and understanding of each other as well as helping to establish a direction that you all aim to move toward. As it is a personality assessment, five behaviours makes you aware of the personalities and motives of others which can help to further build trust. For example, someone who remains calm in times of crisis and seeks to calm others may be seem a lot more trusting than someone who is not calm and seems to make rash decisions and dismiss everyone and everything. However you may learn about this person that they are simply fixated and only interested in finding a solution to the team’s problem. In understanding others, trust can be built.
Understanding is also crucial in dealing with conflict. Often, people will clash and disagree due to a difference in personality, methods and a lack of insight and awareness when it regards the other person. It is often difficult during conflict to understand where the other person is coming from and what has made them behave and think the way that they do. Conflict arises when there is poor communication, dissatisfaction and sometimes even when things change within the workplace. Whether it is constructive conflict or destructive conflict, communication and understanding of each other can make all of the difference. Eliminating disagreement will allow your team to focus more positive energy elsewhere.
Having a clearer understanding centred on more positive energy will boost individual commitment. This also means that each individual within your team should be able to feel confident and able to share their opinions and ideas. When team members are able to have some input, they will be more likely to commit to ideas and decisions. Five behaviours aims to make people aware of themselves as well as others, presenting insight and the personal tools needed to contribute effectively to their team.
In a team, everyone contributes to the end goal and if an individual fails or falters, that can affect the whole balance and outcome. Five behaviours targets any lack of responsibility, improving the individual’s authority to act and respond to any purposeful or accidental consequences. This is presented in a positive light however as mistakes should be celebrated and recognised as opportunities to improve and a team should always be seeking to improve. Accountability ties in with trust, however this can also represent positive areas for your team were you have succeeded individually.
Results are acquired through high levels of efficiency, something which software can help your team achieve. In using the models, team members can work together in order to become a more effective and cohesive team resulting in high productivity and high functionality.
