Ever heard the saying 'two heads are better than one'? The idea behind building a team is to gather a skilled set of people in order to achieve a common goal. A team can brainstorm, make suggestions, give feedback to each other and create innovative strategies and solutions to problems as a unit. Team building, specifically, provides an enabling and facilitating pathway for the team in order for it to progress towards achievement of a set of goals.
There are three main stages of team building and these include clarifying the goals, identifying issues which may hinder the team from reaching the goals and then addressing these issues and removing the obstacles.
In order for any team to be successful, it is imperative that each inpidual within the team realizes that it is not possible to separate one's performance from those of others. A new paradigm in the work place is beginning to arise in which even management are encouraged to work in teams in order to create an atmosphere of interdependence, trust and participation. This movement from 'I' to 'We' at the work place is tremendously beneficial to both the company's productivity and to employer well being.
There are many different skills which are needed in order to build an effective team and to be a productive member of a team. One of these is communication in which both speaking and listening to others is equally important.
This course will pave the way for inpiduals to become more productive members of teams and to enhance their team building skills. The course will present information through slides, handouts and lectures while encouraging participants to enter discussions and take part in role play exercises.
