THE TEAM ALCHEMY
The Team Alchemy Life Cycle is a powerful visual tool that, when used in conjunction with the Diagnostic and Model, enables a team to visually plot and track movements in team performance over time.
The definitive goal of any team following the Life Cycle is the state of "Team Alchemy" - high performance. This is where truly outstanding business results are achieved.
Teams will move through the Life Cycle in a progressive manner over time.
The time it takes to move through the Life Cycle depends on the type of team it is, the nature of its tasks, and how proactive and successful it is (with the guidance of its Team Alchemy facilitator-coach) in managing its journey through the performance phases.
THE UNITING COMPONENT OF THE TEAM ALCHEMY SYSTEM
The power of the Life Cycle lies in the way it links and unites the components of the Team Alchemy system.
After the Team Alchemy Diagnostic measures team performance in each of the six elements of the Team Alchemy Model, the combined scores of each individual in the team is then used to plot a team’s current position on the Life Cycle.
When the survey is re-applied at regular intervals to a team its movement along the Life Cycle can be tracked and charted.
A VISUAL REPRESENTATION OF YOUR TEAM'S EXPERIENCE
The Life Cycle diagram enables a team to visually plot and track movements in team performance over time, offering an intuitive way for all team members to collectively understand how well and how quickly they are progressing.
Knowing where your team stands on the Life Cycle through the application of the survey makes it possible for effective planning of actions and behaviours required to move forward.
When team members can simultaneously see a visual representation of where they sit on the Life Cycle, it provides a motivational stimulus to work together using the elements of the Team Alchemy Model.
At each phase in the Life Cycle, there are critical behaviours that need to occur, and which your Team Alchemy facilitator-coach will advocate, in order for a team to continue their advancement towards high performance.
