Pyramid’s signature Team Advantage™ is a proven team-coaching program designed to transform teams and convey coaching skills to leaders. The process has been called the “Accelerator,” a key to developing teams to go beyond what is typical to elevate and engage each other in new and more meaningful ways.
Team members develop their own “game” oriented around a stretch goal that is meaningful to the organization’s success. The role of a coach is to support the team leader as well as the entire team to move through the stages of team development from forming the team charter – and sometimes the new team – through storming, to norming behaviors with high-performing results.
During Phase 1, the team leader and coach begin their work together and assess the team.
Game Plan Creation
Phase 2 comprises a live, two-day workshop where the team creates their own game plan tied to a business objective.
Phase 3 is the differentiator between Team Advantage™ and typical “team building."
Phase 4 is when learning is embedded and accomplishments celebrated.
