I wish my team members got along better.

sociomap_samIf only my team members would talk to each other.  I don’t need to get involved in their own squabbles, they should just talk it out. I’ll just ignore it and hope that it will go away.

I have heard these statements from my clients.  They know that there is conflict within their team, they feel it, but they are reluctant to address it.  They are tired of playing referee or parent. They know that certain members of their teams do not work at maximum effectiveness. Individually, these team members are excellent contributors, they achieve results.  But ask them to work together and its a battlefield.

Usually the team leader ends up frustrated and drained when this situation happens. It is emotional and a waste of time. It doesn’t need to be.

Using Sociomapping® techniques, leaders can visualize the level of communication, decision-making, teaming, and cooperation within the teams. Through open and honest dialogue, with the help of a trained executive coach, sociomapping® provides a safe and non-threatening picture of the levels of collaboration with the team.

Sociomapping® has been around for over 20 years and most recently received the Innovation Award 2012 at the 24th IIAS International Conference for significant contribution to the field of sociodiagnostics.

Over the last 20 years Sociomapping® has been used in the research of communication of small groups operating in extreme situations like simulation of space flights or combat units. The process of group mapping has been also pioneered in Army units operating abroad in foreign missions. In 2008, Sociomapping® methods started to be used in commercial areas for mapping of management teams of multinational organizations.

Tired of working in a dysfunctional team? Are you ready to take your team performance to new heights, maximize the contribution of every team member and build synergies and positive collaboration among your team members?  Take your leadership and your career to the next level and build team effectiveness as a competitive advantage.  Contact me at liza@executivehrcoach.com or visit www.sociomap.com to learn more about the benefits of Sociomapping®.
