ClearWorth and Teams
There’s not much we don’t know about how teams work. Over the last 20 years we’ve worked all over the world directly with established teams, with newly formed teams, with cross functional teams, with virtual teams, with high performing and highly dysfunctional teams, with individual team leaders and with specific project teams.
Anytime, anywhere; from the Equator to way up in the Northern Hemisphere. We’ve used the outdoors, coffee carts and call centres, air conditioned hotels, mountain huts, buses, bicycles, canal barges, office premises and oases in the Syrian desert – we love a challenge.
We’ve designed and run company wide team surveys and feedback and we’ve developed and published our own models, approaches and exercises. Not all teams are real teams, some are working groups and some are not sure if they should be a team at all. Of course, no intervention has been exactly the same but some key principles seem to apply for a team or group or organisation to be consistently successful.
They need to
- Know why they exist and what is expected of them according to all who invest in them
- Understand and constantly build their relationship with customers, sponsors and stakeholders
- Deliver on their explicit and implicit promises and build a reputation for success
- Develop working practices which fit with the demands, timescales and pressures of their working environment
- Work closely together, deal with internal issues as they arise and remove obstacles to success
- Keep learning and developing by understanding and acknowledging feedback and the changing marketplace

Our interactive workshop and process for real teams helps set the agenda and create productive, intelligent conversations. Read More

Making the Most of Your Potential in Teams and Groups
Team stuff for people who don’t like team building events or psychological approaches. This is Myers Briggs with all the worry removed. We were asked to develop a quick, insightful approach that helped engineers, techies, editors and a few other sceptics think about their contribution. Using the MBTI™ framework this programme has helped hundreds…Read more
