Advancing Team Performance

ATP is our virtual workshop that focuses on assessing and executing the five core strategies for successful teams, based on over 20 years of marketplace results.

Teams are the lifeblood of many organizations, yet many fall short in achieving their essential outcomes. Why? 

  • They get off to a poor start. Or maybe they get off to a decent start, but the landscape changes & they are unable to cope.

  • They are experiencing significant change and are struggling to adapt.

  • They flounder, resulting in delays, missed milestones, and lost focus.


In our experience, there are many reasons why this can happen: 

  • Purpose and/or goals are unclear or not accepted.

  • Unclear, redundant or missing roles.

  • Uncertainties or conflicts around scope.

  • No structure for critical thinking, issues analysis, or decision making.

  • Too much dependence on inferior forms of communication.

  • No system to hold team members accountable.

How does ATP work? 

During the ATP experience, your team will learn principles and processes to maximize your collective effectiveness. ATP consists of a series of online lessons followed by live virtual sessions, where your team will come together and complete the key elements selected for your group. ATP can also be delivered in person, for teams who can participate in face-to-face sessions. Timing and commitment depends on modules selected, number of team members, and virtual or in-person delivery. 

ATP is highly customized to the needs of your team. During the ATP planning process, you'll work with a senior FOCUS consultant to assess the team's current state in each of the five ATP areas of focus.
