We loved supporting the Danone Health & Hydration team with their journey to high performance and more collaborative working
A change of leader within Danone’s Health & Hydration team provided an opportunity for team development with a focus on building collaboration across three sub teams and performing as a cohesive, highly effective group of people.
Leading Edge was asked to design a Highly Effective Teams (H.E.T.) journey for the whole team, consisting of three senior leaders and 15 team members. H.E.T. is a flexible framework in support of team development, wherever they are on their journey.
Designing an H.E.T. journey begins with gaining a true understanding of where the team members are in terms of the current situation and the future desired situation. When teams need to come together under a new leader, it’s crucial that any team journey enables everyone’s strengths to be realised and valued collectively.
Lumina Spark profiling is a valuable start point. It helps team members to both explore their own personal strengths and better understand themselves and others. We included this self-awareness profiling in the journey to provide a common language for team discussion around strengths and open up opportunities to positively discuss differences and tensions, to understand why they occur, and to have better insight to help them positively move forward.
