People generally thrive in an environment that frees them to collaborate, but not everyone knows how to prepare for effective participation. Increased levels of change mean that work groups tend to evolve much more quickly and so need to be more flexible. Unclear reporting lines and divided loyalties may exist and collaborative working in virtual or fragmented teams requires additional effort to succeed. This participative programme reveals the secrets of working co-operatively with others, building group cohesion and working together towards agreed goals. The session recognises that not everyone is naturally affiliative and delivers a simple framework to help people relate to each other, share solutions and improve results. We explore all the characteristics of high performing teams and equip participants with the tools to respond and adapt in the face of changing demands.
Low on theory, this practical workshop, provides multiple opportunities to test the latest collaborative practices. Ideal for existing teams to help them work better together; for new teams to build greater cohesion and for individuals wishing to develop their skills in this area. You don’t even need to be currently working in a defined team to benefit from learning how to compete co-operatively, share expertise, pull together in the same direction, trust one another and celebrate group successes.
