Team Building for Everyone

Team Building for Everyone

Is your team WET or DRY?

Does your workgroup Work Effectively Together or is it does it use a DRY/Deliver Results Yourself (and forget about everyone else) approach? This workshop is designed for all members of the team.  It will discuss how teams — and each of their members – can thrive when colleagues have shared values, efforts focused on a common purpose and agree to work collaboratively in a healthy and trusting work environment.  

Participants in this workshop will:

  • Define the elements required to form a strong team foundation.  Describe the characteristics of an effective team.  Consider strengths and opportunities that may exist within their own teams.
  • Collectively, determine how the responsibility and accountability for ensuring team effectiveness differs between team members and the team leader.  Test assumptions using in-session exercises.  
  • Identify factors that can negatively influence team development and performance.  Learn how to prevent and mitigate these negative influences, with reference to take-away guides.
  • Explain the difference between disagreements and conflicts, including how each could impact a team and/or its members.  Practice giving and receiving constructive feedback.  
  • Learn and practice a number of effective communication techniques.  
  • Observe and discuss how DRY teams struggle to survive, due to their negative impact on clients, team members and/or the business.     
  • Prepare a SMART plan to either apply or share their learnings.
