Thriving Teams

Improve team communication and build more collaborative teams

Enhance team communication and foster a culture of collaboration with thriving teams!

Difficulties with colleagues and team members can often create stress in the workplace. The strength of a team can be the deciding factor between success and failure, with individuals either thriving or quitting.

Feeling connected and supported by others within a team is crucial, as it can significantly impact engagement and reduce stress levels.

At The Thrive Lab, we specialise in creating psychological safety, fostering connections, and improving communication within teams. Let us help your team thrive by scheduling a FREE consultation today.

Did you know that employees report being 7x more engaged and less stress if they have a friend at work?

How can we help your team?

What we have noticed with many of our clients is that teams are struggling right now…

> People feel disconnected
> People feel unheard
> People don’t feel valued
> People are having to build new relationships in new ways
> People are feeling more burnt out and under pressure.

All of this leads to STRESS, ANXIETY and FEAR. This means that people are not thinking at their best and feel less able to support each other.

Perhaps your business is seeing the effects with a rise in quiet quitting, grievances, sickness absences or people handing in their notice.

If this sounds familiar to you but you don’t know what you can do about it, then our Thriving Teams programme might be a good option for you.

Although the programme has been designed with teams in mind, it would work equally well with a group of managers, a project team or a newly formed team that is finding its feet. Perhaps you’ve got a new leader or there are other changes within your team that would benefit from the chance to come together?

I really appreciate that we were all able to input and be listened to, but within a structure so that I feel confident in our plans now. I don't think we'd have been able to do this ourselves quite so quickly and effectively in this focused way.

FAQs

Is this development online or in person?

This programme can be delivered virtually or in person. We will work with you to design something that fits your operational requirements best.

Will this help with the wellbeing of our teams?

Looking after the social wellbeing of your teams will help with your wellbeing strategy. Tension in a team causes wasted energy, in-house fighting, and mistakes that can cost your business. Teams that are more connected work better together. Research has shown that when we enjoy work, we are happier, healthier and more productive.

I have other financial pressures in my business at the moment, why should I invest in this?

You CAN NOT afford to IGNORE the WELLBEING of your team right now. 

People are missing human connection.

Burnout, stress, worry and loneliness are prevalent among employees, with burnout rates amongst remote workers higher than those who are working on-site. 

Employees who experience burnout are 63% more likely to take a sick day and are 13% less confident in their performance at work.

Teams are operating in volatile and uncertain times; 45% of people say that team connectedness has declined since Covid-19.

Won’t this add extra pressure to my team?

We understand that time is the most precious resource for anybody which is why we have created a programme around what suits your operational requirements. Working as a team, you can offer coaching to more people that will help them not only feel better, but more engaged and productive in the long run. This will ripple out across the rest of your business.

Why would I choose this over a training programme?

Delivering more training will not create the increased sense of connection and shared purpose needed for teams to thrive in uncertain times. Training is a completely different approach that will boost knowledge and understanding. This time together as a team will revolutionise how you communicate, how you understand each other and how you work together in a way that supports engagement and wellbeing as well as performance outcomes and targets.

I have good managers and leaders, why can’t I leave this to them?

You can if you want. We are certain you have many capable and excellent leaders in your organisation. However, many are already working incredibly hard and asking them to deliver a new approach to their team meetings adds to their workload. Also, they do not benefit from the experience themselves. 

It has been shown that burnout rates are higher where poor management practices do not support the wellbeing of employees. We have the expertise in coaching and wellbeing to help support your leaders and managers to create conversations that are supportive and foster personal growth and development. Having meetings like these will feel unfamiliar and challenging to most leaders and managers until they have had the chance to experience it for themselves and learn how to facilitate future meetings in this style.
