Good Teamwork is like the holy grail: everyone wants it, everyone looks for it, nobody has it.
And if they do, it doesn't last forever.
Good teamwork does not have to do with structure, with feedback, or hierarchies... Sure, all those aspects matter, but they are additional to what's already there.
In other words: if you don't have a solid basis, the rest will have little to no effect - a weak person with a strong tool is still a weak person at the core.
And similarly, a weak team will remain one, regardless of what you throw at it, at its core.
So WHAT IS THERE at the core of good teamwork?
In a word: people. Strong individuals that trust each other, build on each other's strong points and want to stick up for one another, regardless of the external context.
THAT's the holy grail.
And after this workshop, you won't have the holy grail - but you will have the map to find it.
You will walk out of this workshop knowing what the right conditions are for a team to improve at its core and build from that point onwards. You will recognize what dysfunctions - if any - your team has and you will know instinctively how to intervene.
And because talking only gets us this far - we will be practicing good teamwork from the start, and give you a comparison tool to keep and use whenever needed.
