Training content

Organizations Today

To begin the day, we will look at how changes in organizations have affected teams.

Types of Teams

During this session, we will define the word “team.” We will also look at some different team models, including traditional teams, task forces, and virtual teams.

Team Norms

In this session, participants will establish some team norms: ground rules that a team can use to help them work together.

The TORI Team Building Model

One way of looking at team development is the TORI model. Participants will experience this model through a fun exercise.

Beckhart’s Activities

In 1972, Richard Beckhart said that there are four activities a group should perform on a regular basis if they desire to grow into a team. Since researchers today still agree on these four activities, we will spend some time exploring each activity.

The Four Stages of Team Development

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

Characteristics of Great Teams

The 12 characteristics of effective teams were developed by Glenn Parker, who has devoted his whole life’s work to studying teams. We will discuss the first four characteristics in this session.

Civilized Disagreements and Consensus

This session will focus on the next two characteristics: civilized disagreements and
consensus decisions.

Open Communication

Next, participants will learn tips for open team communication, Parker’s seventh characteristic of effective teams.

Clear Roles and Assignments

This session is all about Parker’s eighth characteristic.

Shared Leadership

This session is all about Parker’s ninth characteristic. Participants will also explore shared leadership through a fun activity.

Team Player Types

During this session, participants will score their pre-assignment. Participants will then work in small groups to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of their team player style. This will address the final three characteristics of effective teams.

The Trust/Relationship Model

In this session, participants will look at how trust impacts relationships through a lecture and small group work.

Lateral and Vertical Thinking

This session will examine two types of thinking: lateral and vertical. We will also look at how these thinking models affect creativity.

Creative Team Thinking

During this session, participants will discuss various creative thinking methods, including brainstorming and brainwriting. They will also discuss Edward De Bono’s six thinking hats.

Team Shaping Factors

First, participants will discuss the four factors that shape a team during a lecture. Then, participants will apply the knowledge to a case study.

Solving Problems

Team problem solving needs a three-phase approach: problem identification, decision making, and planning and organizing. We will look at this model through a combination of lectures and group work.

Interventions for Team Leaders

This session will look at some common problems that teams face and some
recommended solutions.

Resolving Conflict

Solving conflict in a positive way is key for building a strong team. This session will look at tips for resolving conflict. Participants will also take part in a role play to demonstrate the concepts learned.

SWOT Analysis

Performing an analysis of the team’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats can be a great tool for development. We will discuss how to perform such an analysis, and then participants will work in small groups to complete a case study.

Developing Team Action Plans

To wrap up the course, we will look at some planning tools that teams can use to help them grow and improve, including improvement plans and action plans.

Being in an industry that experiences stressful situations on a daily basis is tough. Being a manger of a team of people who experience this same stress on a daily basis is even more challenging.
