Managers often work together for years without ever realising the full potential of teamwork. There is too much focus on daily tasks and it is hard to appreciate the diversity of expertise, experience and personal styles within the team.
Top Team Workshop
A team is much more than a group of individuals working on connected tasks. There is a shared goal, alignment, roles and the variety of personal views that can guarantee that the team will be smarter than the team members combined. But building such a team requires a careful assessment of the current situation and a strong commitment to shared team goals, values and working methods.
We help them discover the power of people with diverse viewpoints working together for a specific common goal, so they can unlock tremendous hidden potential and increase performance without the need for additional resources.
What does a typical programme look like?
We start by listening to the client's description of their business, the way teams presently work together, their successes and challenges. Before we set the specific goals for the programme, we conduct individual or team assessment using personality or behavioural tools, chosen either by the client or by Campanile. Finally, we choose the team(s) participating in the programme and set clear goals for the subsequent team workshops.
Top Team Workshop programmes usually consist of a workshop, or a series of workshops, where an existing team, such as management team or project team, builds awareness about the current diversity and culture among them, discusses case studies, role-plays typical team situations at their work and agrees on follow-up action. We also help team members form pairs of small groups that support each other in the long run. Each activity builds on the results of the previous one, and can be adjusted accordingly.
Without proper follow-up, the implementation plan that resulted from workshops becomes a distant memory after six months. We know how busy people are, and therefore we design our projects realistically. From simple reminders to refresher workshops, we offer a dozen ways to turn a single programme into effective and sustainable problem solving. We also work together with our clients to ensure that levels, units and teams within the company support each other's improvement.
