MANAGEMENT: Why Your People Are Important
Recent Western Cape Business News
Are organisations taking time out to recognise that people are their most valuable resource? Judging by the 58 organisations that sent representatives to the Cape Town launch of Purposeful Teams the answer is yes.
The 58 organisations represented at the Cape Town launch ranged from Allan Gray, the Departments of Public Works, and Social Development, the Mandela Rhodes Foundation, Old Mutual, Petro SA, Portfolio Managers, Prudential, Telkom, the Universities of Cape Town and Stellenbosch, and leading retail groups.
Smart organisations recognise the opportunity presented by the current global challenges to engage people and ‘mine’ the wisdom from that valuable resource – a resource that requires effective leadership and teamwork now, and in the future. The question is how does one align individual actions and accountability behind the organisation’s strategic goals? Purposeful Teams™ does just that.
Purposeful Teams™ is a fast-acting and powerful intervention that awakens effective team performance. It places the team within the organisational context and leverages the organisational mandates into the purpose of the team – contextualising the reason for its existence. The fact that a strong common purpose is the common denominator and the most fundamental aspect for optimal team functioning, is often overlooked in team development.
Participants at the launch recognised that Purposeful Teams™ requires leaders and team members to take a step back and ensure that there is a clear mandate. The intervention accelerates the implementation of appropriate execution strategies and action plans, encourages high performance and rapid results, and averts potential derailing and adverse relationship issues. Learning outcomes include identifying key milestones, integration, and engaging team members in meaningful conversations.
