Description

For most of us, teamwork is a part of everyday life. Whether it's at home, in the community, or at work, we are often expected to be a functional part of a performing team. Having a strong team will benefit any organization and will lead to more successes than not. The Teamwork And Team Building workshop will encourage participants to explore the different aspects of a team, as well as ways that they can become a top-notch team performer. Your participants will be given the details and concepts of what makes up a team, and what factors into being a successful team and team member.

Designed for

  • Managers, Supervisors and leads.
  • Teams.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop, you should be able to:

  Describe the concept of a team and its factors for success.

  Explain the four phases of the Tuckman team development model and define their characteristics.

  List the three types of teams.

  Describe actions to take as a leader – and as a follower for each of the four phases (Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing).

  Discuss the uses, benefits and disadvantages of various team-building activities.

  Describe several team-building activities that you can use, and in what settings.

  Follow strategies for setting and leading team meetings.

  Detail problem-solving strategies using the Six Thinking Hats model -- and one consensus-building approach to solving team problems.

Getting Started

Just to make sure the experience is as smooth as possible we’d like to suggest a couple of things you may or will need to get on with the course:

  • While we are happy for anyone to enrol in the course, we suggest that you should be at least managing/leading a team (big or small) or preparing for a role that requires your leadership skills
  • Internet connection is a big must
  • Readiness to learn, remember this is about you and so you need to be ready to take time to yourself and motivate yourself
  • Maybe something to write some notes down or ideas, but don’t worry the course documents can be downloaded at the end of the course for you to review and use at any time
      Have fun!
