Rapid Team Results – A Leadership Accountability
We will accomplish in 2 days what other consultants wish they could accomplish in 12-24 months!
We have data from over 20 years of experience
We have been implementing this systematic approach to achieving team results with hundreds of teams and have measurable results that have been achieved and sustained for as much as 14 years. For example, one of the most recent teams in a manufacturing facility had the following results:
Meeting effectiveness improved
Decision making improved
Keeping agreements improved
Resolving conflicts improved
More importantly, this manufacturing group went from being the lowest performing to the highest performing operating group in the division of that organization. This included lowering the amount of priority maintenance work orders in the units from 39% down to 7% – beating their goal to reduce it to 20%. In addition, schedule compliance went from 50% up to 75%.
NOTE: These results were achieved in 5 months with a cross-functional management/supervisor team representing 3 different functional areas and 30 people – breaking down the silo behavior that dominated this group prior to our implementing Rapid Team Results™.

Rapid Team Results™ is a “Working Session” NOT a Teambuilding
or Training Program. We assist the team in leveraging the three key areas directly linked to business results by changing fundamental habitsthat have blocked improvement in the following key areas:
- Execution – the link between people and teams to produce a result
- Relationships – the interactions between people to ensure trust, support and effective communication are in place to sustain performance improvement
- Deliverables – the operational goals and projects necessary to achieve business results
|Dysfunctions of a Team||Solutions Utilizing RTR|
|Inattention to Results||Correlated tracking & measurements for business results execution and team relationships|
|Avoidance of Accountability||Accountable meetings where individuals surface and resolve breakdowns that could prevent success|
|Lack of Commitment||Individual and shared accountability where team and organizational success supersede individual interests|
|Fear of Conflict||Success Factors of Execution™ develop new habits for managing conflicts and making decisions|
|Absence of Trust||Interaction Agreements™ build trust support and open communication|
- Assess Team Execution and Relationships related to current performance
- Discuss Personal and Shared Accountability – A Key for High Performance
- Develop an aligned and comprehensive Picture of Success for achieving breakthrough results (This goes well beyond your typical vision or mission statement)
- Define 15 to 20 Core Habits of Execution necessary to achieve the Picture of Success
- Establish meaningful measurements for each Core Habit of Execution and prioritize the top 3 to 5 for leveraging the change
- Empower task forces to implement 3 to 5 New Habits of Execution directly linked to achieving deliverables and business results
- Develop Accountable Agreements for improving team relationships and sustaining improvement
- Create high performance team meetings – focused only on surfacing and resolving breakdowns related to the most important deliverables and improvement initiatives
While many projects go through extensive chartering and planning processes, they lack critical elements that resulting in a breakdown of accountability when it comes to execution. Even “dashboard” processes to monitor results aren’t solving the issues that cause project breakdown.
Effective Project Execution™ ensures that there is an effective plan that focuses on cross-functional accountability in addition to the typical individual accountability of most project plans. In addition, a process is established to ensure proactive problem surfacing prior to milestones being missed. Rather than asking for forgiveness when milestones are missed, the problems causing missed milestones are surfaced early enough to keep the project on schedule. Finally, proactive recovery plans are established to address the “human” errors that undermines success.
