Course Overview You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives. Organizations Today To begin the day, we will look at how changes in organizations have affected teams. Types of Teams During this session, we will define the word “team.” We will also look at some different team models, including traditional teams, task forces, and virtual teams. Team Norms In this session, participants will establish some team norms: ground rules that a team can use to help them work together. The TORI Team Building Model One way of looking at team development is the TORI model. Participants will experience this model through a fun exercise. Beckhart’s Activities In 1972, Richard Beckhart said that there are four activities a group should perform on a regular basis if they desire to grow into a team. Since researchers today still agree on these four activities, we will spend some time exploring each activity. The Four Stages of Team Development Every group of people, whether they are a team or just a group working together, grows and evolves. We will spend this session looking at Bruce Tuckman’s five stages of team development: forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning. Characteristics of Great Teams The 12 characteristics of effective teams were developed by Glenn Parker, who has devoted his whole life’s work to studying teams. We will discuss the first four characteristics in this session. Civilized Disagreements and Consensus This session will focus on the next two characteristics: civilized disagreements and consensus decisions. Open Communication Next, participants will learn tips for open team communication, Parker’s seventh characteristic of effective teams. Clear Roles and Assignments This session is all about Parker’s eighth characteristic. Shared Leadership This session is all about Parker’s ninth characteristic. Participants will also explore shared leadership through a fun activity. Team Player Types During this session, participants will score their pre-assignment. Participants will then work in small groups to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of their team player style. This will address the final three characteristics of effective teams.
