Building Better Teams

Build­ing Bet­ter Teams

Teams have become a prin­ci­ple build­ing block of suc­cess­ful orga­ni­za­tions. This one-​day work­shop is a basic course for team lead­ers and team mem­bers, designed to focus on the char­ac­ter­is­tics of an effec­tive team player and the ele­ments of an effec­tive team.

Intro­duc­tion and Course Overview


You will spend the first part of the day get­ting to know par­tic­i­pants and dis­cussing what will take place dur­ing the work­shop. Stu­dents will also have an oppor­tu­nity to iden­tify their per­sonal learn­ing objectives.

Defin­ing Teams
To get started, you will guide par­tic­i­pants to define what a team is and what dif­fer­ent kinds of teams there are. You will also have par­tic­i­pants demon­strate syn­ergy through a sim­ple exercise.

Estab­lish­ing Team Norms
This ses­sion will look at some of the ben­e­fits and pit­falls of teams. We will also dis­cuss estab­lish­ing team norms: ground rules that a team can use to help them work together.

Work­ing as a Team
Dur­ing this ses­sion, you will have par­tic­i­pants look at a tool called the Gra­di­ents of Agree­ment. You will also dis­cuss how it can help them inter­act with their teammates.

Glenn Parker Team Sur­vey
Dur­ing this ses­sion, par­tic­i­pants will com­plete a sur­vey con­structed by Glenn Parker, a busi­ness con­sul­tant who has done a great deal of research on teams. This sur­vey will help par­tic­i­pants iden­tify their team player style. Par­tic­i­pants will then work in small groups to dis­cuss the strengths and weak­nesses of their style.

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 small groups, par­tic­i­pants will dis­cuss some basic 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. We will spend this ses­sion look­ing at Tuck­man and Jensen’s four stages of team devel­op­ment: form­ing, storm­ing, norm­ing, and performing.

Tow­ers
Another way of look­ing at team devel­op­ment is the TORI model. 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
There are some skills that par­tic­i­pants can develop to become bet­ter team play­ers. In this ses­sion, we will dis­cuss some Really Use­ful Atti­tudes and some Really Use­less Attitudes.

Work­shop Wrap-​Up
At the end of the day, stu­dents will have an oppor­tu­nity to ask ques­tions and fill out an action plan.
