Originally titled “The Five Dysfunctions of a Team”, this perennial Wall Street Journal bestseller has been re-branded to focus on the positive side and is now known as “Five behaviours of a cohesive team”. This team building work shop explores the fundamental causes of organizational politics and team failure.
This seminar is conducted in an online setting specially adapted for remote and virtual teams that are bound to working from separate geographic locations and across time-zones or simply prefer to follow a seminar online versus coming together in a physical setting.
• A summary customised team report of the Five Behaviors model and assessment of the team’s performance in each behavior
• A color report that instantly shows the teams areas of strength and weaknesses and provides clear actionable advice for overcoming identified team dysfunctions
• A simple and usable best practices and exercises section for leaders and facilitators to help encourage transformational change and improve team cohesion
• Facilitation instructions explaining how to effectively communicate and share the results with the participants
Teams will participate in a wide range of activities during the seminar designed to support the theory model going through the stages of trust, conflict, commitment, accountability and results. The event starts with a couple of ice-breakers.
Below are two example challenge instructions as provided to the teams during the activity:
“The goal of this game is to cross the minefield with the whole team first. Participants go from one side of the minefield to the other without talking and being blasted away by the mines. The minefield consists of a grid of 6 by 9 squares. One by one the team must cross safely, learning the correct route as they go.”
“The aim of this game is to move a pyramid of different sized blocks from one place to another. The challenge is to move the blocks one by one between only three places without ever placing a block on a smaller sized block.”
This event is staged online using a combination of ‘Zoom Meetings’ and a selection of other software and websites, all of which are easily accessible or free to download. We can send an invitation via email containing all instructions and links prior to the event. We highly suggest installing the relevant programs and using a desktop or laptop for full experience. Tablet and smart phone access is possible but will contain less functionality.
Scoring and a winning team is not applicable as this is not a competitive activity, however this may be implemented upon the client’s wishes to add another dimension to the event.
The event briefing takes place in the central video conference room. The briefing will include a short tutorial for how to use the Video Conferencing software and best practices for operating within a group video chat. i.e. muting microphones when not speaking, looking at camera when speaking etc. After the briefing, participants will be separated into teams and invited by the facilitator to separate chat rooms, then the lead facilitator gives further instructions and objectives for the activity. The de-brief takes place again in the central video conferencing room. Briefing and de-brief usually take around 15 minutes each but can be extended upon request for more in-depth analysis of team performance.
Starting with a two to four hour half day option, this activity can be expanded to an eight hour full day event.
