Team Development - Cross Functional Working

HR Department in a Major Investment Bank

The HR staff had requested that a better and more cohesive way of working together across business and functional areas was developed.

Aims

The HR staff had requested that a better and more cohesive way of working together across business and functional areas was developed.

Action

The Success Group designed and facilitated a two-day offsite workshop for the HR Department. The event included re-developing the team vision and mission, agreeing the team attributes and actions that supported that vision and mission, and developing personal commitment to change. The MBTI was used to increase awareness of working preferences and illustrate possible sources of conflict.

Outcome

After the workshop the client leader saw better use of working time in meetings, reduced conflict around priorities and responsibilities and higher motivation.
