How can you engage your team to help you all function more effectively? The focus of our workshop is on team building through a facilitated workshop with a focus on building better understanding around team role contributions, team competencies and how to manage conflict. We also look to establish whether engagement issues relate to the team’s interaction or with the wider organisation and implement improvements such as establishing shared values, recognition and reward
Before the workshop, we use a range of tools to conduct an assessment that will help the team understand differing perspectives. Our off-the-shelf tools include Belbin’s Team roles, Myers Briggs Type indicators (MBTI), Type Dynamics Indicators (TDI) and Thomas Killmann’s conflict modes. We also use bespoke designed assessment tools such as The Engaged Team Assessment to get to the heart of the issues in your team’s specific context.
We will then agree with you the focus for the workshop and your aims. This format often includes:
- current position – the purpose, direction and current challenges for the team
- team make up – reflecting on any assessment findings around strengths, conflicts and opportunities
- team building – exploring how to make the most of the team’s strengths and opportunities that emerge from this
- team action planning – what actions you can take to tackle any emerging weaknesses and related threats to the team’s performance
