Team Building Workshops

A great team is not just a group of great individuals: research shows that how a team works together is actually more important than who’s on the team. 

A great team building workshop can be a really effective process to get team members working effectively together, aligned behind a clear purpose, with defined goals and roles.

Workshops often focus on a number of crucial areas:

Team Strengths

Help your team identify and build on their strengths, and collaborate better by recognising different working styles.
Z

Working Effectively

Prioritise and schedule work together, focus intently and be a master of meetings and project planning.

Sharing the Load

Each person’s ideas build on those of others, and everyone takes equal ownership of success and failure.

Team Communication

Establish rules and best practices for delegation, feedback and knowledge sharing between team members.

Trust & Psychological Safety

Build a safe environment where team members feel comfortable and confident enough to take risks.

Vision, Purpose & Morale

Achieve a clear sense the team is working on something meaningful, that matters and creates change.

Tailored to your team

I’ll work with you to design a suitable session that will benefit your team. If you’re a team leader, getting me on board as a team building facilitator enables you to experience the session with your team, rather than feeling wholly responsible for leading and driving the agenda. You’ll be free to bond and integrate with your team as much as you like.

Team building workshops enable team members to take part in a number of facilitated discussions and activities to explore the topics and challenges most relevant to your team.

The workshop can be weighted towards different topics depending on the specific areas you’re looking to develop.

“We gave James plenty of information about our objectives and goals. He used this information to totally tailor the programme around our team and the individuals in it.”

– David Knowles, ThinkBDA

“We found the day hugely beneficial and left with loads of practical actions to follow up on. The feedback from the team has been very positive.”

– Lena Koskela, Viasat World
