Effective Teamwork

Experience the potential of goal-oriented co-operation in a successful team

Can teams really achieve more than a group of individuals? There are many fairy tales, sayings and half-truths about teams. Many people have experienced effective co-operation in a team only in team sports – at school and during studies only the individual was important. Today, on the job or in your project you are dependent on others – and others on you. But how does a team really work?

Seminar Objectives

In this active and lively seminar we do not talk theoretically about teams, you experience teamwork directly in many concrete situations. We give you demanding tasks. You have to work in your team on the solution – under time pressure. Just like in real life. Thereby, we elaborate what is needed for a team to work effectively. You also get individual answers on the core questions of this seminar: What is needed to be successful in a team? How do you play your part in a team? What extra do you have to learn or what do you have to give up? At the end of the seminar, you are going to have a systematic and structured approach to successful teamwork at hand.

Your Benefit

In this seminar you continuously work on varied tasks which you have to solve in the team. So, you learn from your experiences. If your team has solved a task well, we have a look at the success factors; if tasks have not turned out well, we think about how it could work better. All our feedback is very individual. It’s not about how „somebody” could have made something better but concretely about what you personally can contribute to make co-operation in a team work. You not only learn about general team rules, but also a lot about yourself and the roles which you can take in a team. During the seminar you receive individual and personal feedback from the trainer and the other team members about your contributions to the team tasks and to the results. Participants will be awarded with 16 PDUs.
