We focus on teamwork, because we believe effective teams are what separate the thriving companies from those that are struggling. Effective teams have effective leaders who foster and encourage teams to be highly collaborative. Engaged teams are celebrated in the workplace because they achieve goals and radiate a positive impact with all those they interact with.
If you think about your workplace, everyone is working with someone, whether it’s a team of two, twenty or hundreds. It could be a sales team, global team, admin team, engineering team or project team. An organization thrives when teamwork is at it’s best.
ECG was hired to customize The Team Energy Program to deliver to intact and cross-fuctional teams, many of them were engineering teams. Because of the great success of the program, we were asked to develop a management training program based on The Team Energy Program.
The management program was centered on energizing teams and leveraging employee and team strengths. As a result, Managers learned how their energy impacts their team’s productivity. And, how to manage it for a more positive impact. They gained awareness about their top 7 strengths and how to use their strengths to be a better manager. Managers also discovered their team’s strengths and how to utilize those strengths for greater productivity and team performance Because of this change, team members were re-engaged to achieve their team goals. The Team Energy and Management Programs have been rolled out to multiple teams throughout Sony.
“I just LOVE this course!!! The Team Energy Program is one that I highly recommend to any company that is looking to instill a new mindset and approach to how managers lead and also how teams can interact. I had the opportunity to run this program in two different companies and have found that in both of these diverse organizations, managers learned how they could better understand and communicate with their staff; and teams learned about their individual strengths (energizers), and they learned how these strengths showed up in their teams and discussed how the team could approach projects and initiatives in different ways based on this new information. This created high and positive energy each time teams entered into these discussions. In addition, I want to comment on how effective the training is on the associated activities and conversations especially about energy levels, overdrive and energy drainers; this is an eye-opener for participants because it helps to increase their self-awareness and explain why they “show up” as they do at their job. The understanding of your energy impact on your relationships and your strengths is one that has been a “game-changer” for managers and teams I have worked with. I strongly encourage your teams to be open to experiencing this change through this program.”

“Your efforts not only benefited the trainees, but also the people they support. As a result of this training we are establishing working partnerships that leverage the key players in our organization. I believe that Cobra Golf is a better company because of these efforts.”
“Michelle brought a dysfunctional team together to work as a unit, benefiting both the assistants and the teams they supported. She was very professional, yet at the same time was warm and friendly to everyone, making each experience with her enjoyable and memorable. She works equally well with management.”

“Your enthusiasm for what you do and the professionalism you bring to the job is unequalled. The Empowered Assistant met many of the needs with which the administrative professionals have struggled, and it shifted a few paradigms about how they think about themselves. We know that people’s behaviors are – to some degree – created by how they think of themselves. This shift in thinking has already produced some major changes and I am confident those positive changes will continue over time.”
