Training content

Defining Teams

To get started, you will help participants define what a team is and what different kinds of teams there are. Participants will also demonstrate synergy through a simple exercise.

Establishing Team Norms

This session will look at some of the advantages and disadvantages of teams. Participants will also explore ground rules and team contracts.

Working as a Team

During this session, participants will learn how to use the Degrees of Support to help a team work through controversial issues.

Your Team Player Type

Next, participants will score their pre-assignment and identify their team player type. Participants will then work in small groups to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of their type and how to use this information to their advantage.

Building Team Trust

Trust is one of those mainstay virtues. It is the bond that allows any kind of significant relationship to exist between people. In this session, participants will explore some ways to establish and build trust on their team.

The Stages of Team Development

Every group of people, whether they are a team or just a group working together, grows and evolves. Participants will spend this session looking at Tuckman and Jensen’s five stages of team development: forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning.

Team Building with TORI

Another way of looking at team development is the TORI model, developed by Jack and Lorraine Gibb. Participants will experience this model through a fun exercise.

Communication

If a team is going to succeed, they must be able to communicate well with each other. This session will cover some basic principles of communication.

Becoming a Good Team Player

To wrap the course up, participants will think about ways to increase interaction among their team and build trust.

I have always been a big believer that you are only as successful as an organization as how your team works together. If your team doesn't work well together, the business will suffer. Fortunately our business hasn't had an issue with poorly performing team members, however, I did think it was important to provide this information to my team so ...
