Building a High Performing Self-Managing Team

This fun and highly engaging team building workshop to focus attention on:

  • Building upon the existing team's relationships
  • Understanding ourselves (this will assist with the SWOT analysis)
  • Understanding the impact our behaviour has on others especially when we are planning and implementing projects.

Build Your Team

The purpose of the team building is to create a positive mindset amongst the team:

  • Be open to new ideas
  • Be open to new approaches to enhance the working relationship between the members of the team
  • Awareness of the impact of our 'conscious and unconscious' bias has on the effectiveness of our working relationships

When evaluating how well team members are working together, the following statements can be used as a guide:
Team goals are developed through a group process of team interaction and agreement in which each team member is willing to work toward achieving these goals.
Participation is actively shown by all team members and roles are shared to facilitate the accomplishment of tasks and feelings of group togetherness.
Feedback is asked for by members and freely given as a way of evaluating the team's performance and clarifying both feelings and interests of the team members. When feedback is given it is done with a desire to help the other person.
Team decision making involves a process that encourages active participation by all members.
Leadership is distributed and shared among team members and individuals willingly contribute their resources as needed.
Problem solving, discussing team issues, and critiquing team effectiveness are encouraged by all team members.
Conflict is not suppressed. Team members are allowed to express negative feelings and confrontation within the team which is managed and dealt with by team members. Dealing with and managing conflict is seen as a way to improve team performance.
Team member resources, talents, skills, knowledge, and experiences are fully identified, recognised, and used whenever appropriate.
Risk taking and creativity are encouraged. When mistakes are made, they are treated as a source of learning rather than reasons for punishment.
After evaluating team performance against the above guidelines, determine those areas in which the team members need to improve and develop a strategy for doing so.

It is expected that the outcomes from the workshop would provide the participants with the opportunity to improve their working relationships resulting in improved communication practises between all stakeholders.

  1. Create an agreed and shared Vision and Team's purpose
  2. Create an agreed criteria for effective communication between stakeholders
  3. Improve pride within the department
