How Groups Work

Workshop title: How Groups Work

1-2-day workshop – Facilitator and 2 actors

Who is it for: – Anyone that leads a team or is part of a team   

Since no one personality or communication style works in all situations, leaders and team members need to, first of all, be able to recognise their own style and behavioural characteristics.  Secondly, they need to be able to understand the strengths and needs of all and as a result, make appropriate changes to their own style whether they lead the team or are part of the team so they become more effective and successful.

Number of participants – Max 15 (can be increased with extra resource)

Pre-work :- Participants will take the MBTi questionnaire online

Course overview: – In this workshop, participants complete a personality style inventory prior to the training that provides them with a clear insight to their preferred style.  The personal inventories highlight how each participant has differing styles and motivations.  One of the major failings of teams is to assume that everyone is influenced by the same motivations and have the same needs and this can lead to misunderstanding, lack of appreciation and conflict.  Being able to recognise these styles and motivations in self and others is a first step along the pathway to a highly successful team

All participants have an opportunity to discover more about themselves and their team members directly by taking part in an experiential exercise where they are organised into teams and are tasked with developing a project.  In this exercise, participants have the opportunity to choose a leader, develop team working skills, experience decision making, assess their own and others ability to successfully lead, appropriately delegate tasks, assign roles and responsibilities etc.
