Why develop your teams?

Professional training and development is a foundational piece of a company’s long term investment and growth strategy. To increase the success rate and consistency of how your teams operate, the key is effective training that changes behaviours while reinforcing a collaborative, results-driven culture.

Outcomes of Vivo Team Training

Heightens employee satisfaction & engagement

Employees are most satisfied when they’re given the skills and support they need to perform their duties with confidence. Our training is both theoretical and practical, meaning employees can apply learning and change behaviour right away.

Increases productivity

Implementing a successful system of training helps keep employees both knowledgeable and motivated. Well trained employees work more efficiently and are happier at work. Sharpening both their hard and soft skills is one key to maintaining their high productivity.

Provides integrated workplace analytics

That which gets measured, gets managed. Vivo Team’s data collection shows people what they’re doing well and what needs improvement. It’s the data you need to support the change you want: those who know what’s driving the training value it. When they can see what’s impacting their performance they’re motivated to participate and excited to be part of the shift.

Helps attract & retain talent

Effective training is a key retention tool, providing employees the opportunity to both learn new skills and hone existing ones. When businesses invest in their people, they feel valued and invest in the business in return.

Six key indicators of high performance

Business is about projects, and project completion is often a team effort. To consistently meet and surpass your business objectives, creating high-performing teams is crucial. Successful Team Development is both a science and an art. Research shows the best results are achieved when team leaders train alongside their team. Shared training means a shared language and skillsets producing a more cohesive and collaborative team overall. We work on team competence, motivation and collaboration within the context of six areas identified as key indicators of high performance:

Communication

Dependable communication strategies reduce misunderstanding, minimize work delays and enhance overall productivity. Critical to high team performance, VIVO Team provides communication models and a framework to identify mission-critical information, navigate conflict, make decisions with confidence and nurture a collaborative team culture.

Feedback & Feedforward

Feedback is about what’s happened in the past while feedforward is about expected future results. Both provide essential information used to make important decisions and ultimately improve performance. Vivo Team teaches how to give and receive the most effective feedback and feedforward.

Structures

Efficient and successful teams depend on a structure everyone knows and anticipates. Vivo Team will guide you in creating a unified and streamlined process for conducting work within your organization. Teams will learn best practices to get the job done and we’ll provide a framework for how to conduct meetings, make decisions, prioritize activities, manage time and engage in meaningful ways.

Emotional Intelligence

In a work environment, the ability to identify and manage your own emotions as well as those of others is an important skill rarely taught directly. Without sacrificing team productivity or engagement, Vivo Team teaches leader assertiveness and trains team members to express their own emotions while navigating the emotions of others with empathy.

Cohesion

A cohesive work environment not only increases the likelihood of employee satisfaction and engagement but cohesive teams are more cooperative and successful in achieving the goals they set for themselves. To inspire and drive teams to reach their full potential, Cohesion training teaches members to work inclusively, develop their expertise and how and when to lean on others. Individuals also gain awareness of when to lead and when to follow in a team environment, essential learning for creating a sense of team unity and psychological safety.

Accountability

Teams that hold each other respectfully accountable drive innovation, trust and productivity within organizations. Vivo Team teaches how to create a culture of accountability where team members support one another while addressing concerns immediately, directly and with courtesy.
