People understand teams. At a gut level we know that teamwork is good and that a team can accomplish things impossible for any individual. This doesnít mean that every group of people is a team or can become a team, especially not an effective team. Teams can form and mature to effectiveness via an unlimited number of mechanisms. Some teams form by chance, others by design.
Effective businesses usually canít leave the success of their teams to chance. Intentional teams, like most parts of a successful business are the result of an understanding of the team concept, discipline of execution, and of course, paying attention.
Teams have components that define them and set them up for success. Agovia brings an understanding of team dynamics and success factors to bear when working with teams in any stage of development. Particular moments when an outside facilitation is appropriate include:

Mature and Coasting Teams: Teams in need of a rejuvenation
Dysfunctional Teams: Sometimes itís just not working and action is needed
