Faciliated Team Development

This programme usually occurs over two half days or two full days.

The word team can be traced back to the indo-European word deuk to pull; it has always included a meaning of pulling together. We define teams as any group of people who need each other to accomplish a result.

Facilitated sessions to highlight behaviours, stimulate dialogue and provoke change often include –

  • Setting up the environment for learning, trust and openness
  • The iceberg model of human behaviours
  • The importance of openness and good listening in relationships
  • Skilfull discussion and focussed conversations
  • Exploring Mission, Vision and Values
  • Team or Group?
  • The 5 dysfunctions of teams – Patrick Lencioni

Facilitated team development can also include incident debriefing and group reflective practice. Further sessions incorporating action learning can sustain the learning and development.

The programme results in positive outcomes for participants such as:

  • Understanding the difference between a group and a team
  • Development of a strong and closer group / team
  • More collaboration, with a much more unified approach and avoiding working in silos.
  • A shared vision and key priorities for the future
  • Group / Team to be in a position to positively move forward
  • A better awareness and understanding of each other and self
  • How learning can be shared better

For incident de-brief other outcomes include:

  • Incident is processed and evaluated
  • Learn from the incident and consider personal responsibility in relation to practice and policy
  • Staff to feel comfortable about building trusting relationships with the clients and colleagues again
  • Feeling valued and supported by the organisation in their roles
  • To be more aware of importance of reflective practice on own and with colleagues with clear methods to work with
