Team Effectiveness

BBS_students_2_7740

Please note that this workshop is part 1 of 2. Part 2 will take place as the last workshop on the programme in December.

Part 1 Key message: You don’t have to “like” the team you are in, however you have to work together to achieve your goal. If we can understand differences between us and our team members, we can utilise them to best effect.

Part 2 Key message: LIVE ESCAPE ROOM 28th or 29th November 2018

This session is about dealing with difficulty – as soon as you recognise that something is wrong, it is often most effective to deal with it openly.

Aimed at

Anyone at all wishing to develop their interpersonal and team building skills

Aims & Objectives

Part 1

  • Identify the purpose of a team
  • Identify your preferred role within a team (in comparison to the role we tend to take) (Belbin)
  • Define your organisation as a team (using the Blake-Mouton grid)
  • Identify your performance style and communication preferences using the Merrill-Reid inventory, and explaining how we may learn from other styles and better work with them.

Part 2

  • Identify what a good/bad team looks like and discussing the consequences of both
  • Explain the key dysfunctions of a team (Lencioni) and identifying ways we can (realistically) address them
  • Practice investigating problems within team using the “5 whys” approach (which often identifies more fundamental issues that a simple investigation would)
  • Use “Thinking Hats” (de Bono) to manage difficult discussions
