#1 Corentus Team Wheel: Nuts & Bolts

The Corentus Team Wheel provides a detailed map of the key factors contributing to a team’s effectiveness and performance, from common purpose to roles and competencies to mutual accountability. Leaders, coaches, and other team development professionals use this model as a detailed roadmap both for assessing a team (capturing its unique profile of strengths and challenges) and for helping it move forward (pinpointing the specific changes most likely to help the team grow, develop, and transform). In addition to a general overview of the Team Wheel, this series covers the core components of Common Purpose & Performance Goals and one of our most popular, frequently adopted Collaboration tools: Decision Making. The series culminates with a structured methodology for translating a team's purpose, goals, and decision-making practices into collective work products and role assignments.

Note: The Team Wheel grew out of the Team Fundamentals. Compared to that original framework, this variant has greater depth and a more integrated theoretical grounding, and has been better received by clients.

  • Common Purpose & Performance Goals

Series #2: Team Communication

Every aspect of collaborative teamwork—from decision making and problem solving to performance management and conflict resolution—relies on good communication. Team members must be able not only to speak effectively, but to listen effectively to one another as well. In this set of sessions, which may be taken either individually or as a full set, participants learn easily applicable communication skills that have a powerful impact on team functioning.

Note: Within the Team Wheel, Communication represents one segment of the Collaboration component. We have made it the focus of a full series because it is so complex and so central to effective team functioning. 

Series #2: Team Communication

  • Listening
  • Speech Acts
  • "I" Statements
  • Sociogramming

Series #3:  Team Effectiveness & Buoyancy

Accountability is a cornerstone of effective teamwork. Accountable team members generate trust and respect, drive performance, and produce results. This series explores several critical topics related to making and keeping commitments, maintaining active ownership and engagement, fostering and repairing trust, and ensuring that the work of the team is efficiently and effectively executed.  Note: Within the Team Wheel, Accountability, Ownership & Engagement, and Trust all fall within Mutual Accountability. The Effective Meetings tool falls within the domain of Collaboration, but is intimately connected with issues of Accountability and Execution.

Series #3:  Team Effectiveness & Buoyancy

  • Effective Meetings
  • Accountability Framework
  • Ownership & Engagement
  • Trust

Series #4: The Heart & Mind of Teaming

Managing a team's patterns of thinking and feeling is serious business. Research has demonstrated strong links between people's psychophysiology and their capacity to engage in flexible thinking, effective problem solving, and collaborative teamwork. Organizational climate is directly tied to bottom-line results, including business growth and profits. This series builds upon the latest theory of research on understanding and shifting state of mind and fostering coherence and resilience—with a particular focus on the impact of team leaders. Participants will walk away with a variety of practical, transformational strategies they can implement both with teams and with individual leaders.

Series #4: Mind & Heart of Teaming

  • State of Mind
  • Thinking Path & Neuroscience Overview
  • Stress & Resilience 
  • Coherence (including HeartMath)

Series #5: Team Life Cycle

Teams, like individual human beings, develop and change over time. The Team Life Cycle synthesizes the group development research of Bruce Tuckman, Susan Wheelan, and others into a comprehensive six-stage model. Life Cycle stage influences a team’s ability to effectively utilize each of the Operating Modes and helps determine which areas of the Team Wheel they are ready and able to focus on. Participants will develop awareness of the mindsets, capabilities, and challenges characteristic of each of the six stages, with dynamic applications to the teams they work with. Since teams tend to need the greatest support in Stages 1, 2, and 5, we will focus much of our attention on the issues that emerge in each of these stages.

Series #5: Team Life Cycle

  • Team Life Cycle Overview
  • Stage 1: Form & Connect
  • Stage 2: Storm & Clarify
  • Stage 5: Dorm & Drift
