CONVERSATION, APPLICATION, REFLECTION
(3.5 – 4 hrs)
Our teambuilding psychologist facilitates a conversation about the attributes and behaviours required by members if they are to make up an effective corporate team. He discusses an aspect of effective teams*. The participants are assigned to teams, each of which is given a baking, decorating or cooking task. They apply the concepts covered in the conversation. The teambuilding psychologist observes participants’behaviours during the process before debriefing them (approximately 1 hour), engaging them in discussion around the characteristics of effective teams and his observations. He equips the team with the knowledge of how to enhance team performance and a take-away list of opportunities for improvement in the workplace.
(*An aspect of effective teams could be leadership styles, communication, mediation, conflict resolution, etc. The team decides beforehand which aspect, or combination of aspects, they would like to focus on.)
