Creating Greater Team Cohesion


This course provides the opportunity for intact teams to explore how they work together – what creates cohesion and what is getting in the way? Team members gain increased understanding of themselves, how they are perceived by colleagues and explore their team dynamics through the use of a psychometric tool - the Strength Deployment Inventory (SDI) which is completed online in advance by all team members. 


By the end of the course we will have:


9:30        Introductions, Objectives, Agenda and Agreements for the day
What would make a great team environment for us?
What do we already have and what do we need to be different?
What causes teams to lack cohesion and fail to succeed as a team?


Emotional intelligence, trust and the importance of relationships within the team
Exploring the SDI – understanding different motivational values and the potential impact of these differences on team cohesion



1:45 Understanding others exercise
Recognising how we might ‘overplay’ our strengths in interactions at work
Sources of interpersonal conflict and recognising differences in how we behave when under pressure or are upset, using the SDI


Moving forwards – what do we want to happen differently?
What behaviours do we want more of and less of within our team, in order to become the team we want to be?
