Teamwork is defined as a co-operative effort by a group or team to achieve a common goal.
These Team Building training course materials have been put together to help develop participants’ team working skills. It will help them define a common goal, understand how they want to work together as a team and create an understanding of the behaviours required to develop better team performance. Therefore, it is relevant to all teams that require an element of teambuilding.
Training course contents:
In developing these Team Building training course materials, we did not attempt to create a ‘bonding’ session and we did not focus on team building as an ‘event’ that will leave the participants feeling positive about their work colleagues and sore from climbing trees! Instead, we have taken a pragmatic approach and focused on the actions and understanding we feel is important to help teams appreciate the benefits of a teamwork approach.
Having said this, there are plenty of activities throughout the team building session that will engage and enlighten the participants and ensure they enjoy the experience of learning about what makes effective teams. The Team Building training materials focus on the areas outlined below.
