TEAM BUILDING

 

Teams need tuned up. New teams need to form new relationships, develop team norms, adopt team processes for communicatinG and problem solving, assign roles and a host of other things. Old teams need their oil changed and their tires rotated so to speak. Actually they need to revisit roles and responsibilities, incorporate new members, and sometimes resolve festering interpersonal and leadership issues. Doing these things is often called "team building." The process of team building is not the same as team training. We have listed this topic with our seminars, but true team building involves an assessment of the team's current state and future direction and the selection and adjustment of the right tools to work on the team's unique issues.
