Team Building

Teams and other work groups are often at risk of

  • Feeling overwhelmed by the pressures of work
  • Loosing sight of success
  • Being prone to high levels of stress and sickness
  • Becoming pre-occupied with detail and losing sight of the big picture
  • Falling prey to interactions between staff which make matters worse.

  • Team building can run the risk of either

  • Perpetuating low morale by create action plans which are too demanding and so are not followed through
  • Disappointing staff and wasting their valuable time by being novel but unconnected to the changes which need to happen

  • Solution Focused Team building, in contrast, helps groups to

  • Identify what is already working
  • Identify how to keep this going
  • Identify small doable changes which can make a big difference
  • Identify interactional patterns which help to keep progress going

  • Solution Focused Team Building can be done over the course of one or two days.
