Basics of Team Building
Team Building is a process in which a work group examines how it is currently operating, identifies how it could improve its effectiveness, and implements the procedures and processes that enable it to get the job done in the best possible way. In this course, the participants will focus on how teamwork can impact positively on accomplishing tasks and on conflict resolution in work teams. They will define their roles in improving the quality of services/products that your company provides, and they will build teamwork skills.
The objective of teambuilding program is to
* Link team efforts to department or functional goals
* Recognize when a team is working well or not
* Use techniques for helping a team assess how well it is functioning
* Understand why people behave the way they do in groups
* Use tools that result in more effective meetings
* Create a plan for using the techniques they have learned on the job
Approach to learning
Experiential learning - participants will use a self-assessment exercise to better understand how they personally feel about working in a team, to recognize the issues affecting how people work together and how to handle conflict resolution in their work teams. Using their own experience, they create a tool and use it to assess the level of teamwork in their own areas.
Through a series of group exercises, interactive activities, case studies, and role plays, they will learn a variety of techniques for making their teams more effective.
The Nature of Experiential Learning
Experiential learning is both exciting and challenging. It includes a range of different processes such as individual or team problem solving initiatives, physical challenges, games, simulation exercises, structured processes, sharing sessions, guided visualisations, and structured interactions. In all these events, participants are actively engaged in the learning process and are able to generate meaningful, relevant insights from their experience.
The Nature of Experiential Learning has been defined as having four main characteristics:
The learner is aware of the processes which are taking place, and which are enabling learning to occur; the learner is involved in a reflective experience that enables the person to relate current learning to past, resent and future; the experience and content is personally significant: what is being learned and how it is being learned hold a special importance for that person;
There is an involvement of the whole self - body, thoughts, feelings and actions, not just of the mind. In other words, the learner is fully engaged as a whole person.
