Teamwork and Team Building

Course Description:

For most of us, teamwork is a part of everyday life. Whether it’s at home, in the community, or at work, we are often expected to be a functional part of a performing team. This course will encourage participants to explore the different aspects of a team, as well as ways that they can become a top-notch team performer.

Research has consistently demonstrated that when clear goals are associated with learning, it occurs more easily and rapidly. At the end of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe the concept of a team, and its factors for success
  • Explain the four phases of the Tuckman team development model and define their characteristics
  • List the three types of teams
  • Describe actions to take as a leader – and as a follower for each of the four phases (Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing)
  • Discuss the uses, benefits and disadvantages of various team-building activities
  • Describe several team-building activities that you can use, and in what settings
  • Follow strategies for setting and leading team meetings
  • Detail problem-solving strategies using the Six Thinking Hats model — and one consensus-building approach to solving team problems
  • List actions to do — and those to avoid — when encouraging teamwork
