A team is a group of people working towards a common goal. ‘Team Building’ is the process of enabling that group of people to reach their goal. At Golden Tree CIC we believe that interpersonal skills are at the heart of a team’s ability to reach their shared goal.
It is vital that for effective team building to take place that teams are able to:
- Clarify the team goals
- Identify those issues which inhibit the team from reaching their goals
- Address those issues, remove the inhibitors and enable the goals to be achieved
Golden Tree CIC provides engaging and experiential days which encourage and support all participants to develop and practice their interpersonal skills. Our trainers have many years of experience of managing and supporting diverse teams of people to draw upon, and utilise this experience and knowledge to enhance the Team Building experience.
Within the workshops participants will learn about:
- Effective communication
Failures in communication are at the heart of many team problems. Our sessions look at ways of active listening and ways of responding appropriately. We also explore the use of Transactional Analysis (TA) in order to help people recognise and understand the ways in which they react impacts on the interaction they are engaged in.
- Problem Solving
Work is challenging, in fact we need it to be! Without challenge work becomes demotivating and we can feel ‘burnt out’ too much challenge though can lead to feeling stressed. Encouraging focus and utilising some simple techniques can help us resolve some of the issues we may face.
- Creative thinking
Linked to problems solving sometimes we need to think ‘outside the box’ but this is a skill. A skill that can be learned. It’s not about being unsafe. Far from it. It is about the ability to look for creative solutions to problems and sharing and engaging with others on those solutions
Having a positive sense of self-worth is essential to functioning as part of an effective team. Exploring stress management strategies and engaging in activities that support and develop that sense of self-worth is important for both our physical and mental wellbeing.
Participants will gain a greater understanding as to how their personal attributes, personality and skills contribute to workplace productivity.
