Get it Together

A fresh approach to team building.

Organisational change process often stop once the restructuring is done and the new roles are recruited, but that’s the point at which the work of building a team really starts.

If your team is going to deliver what is asked of it today, tomorrow and next month, you want to make sure it has not only the skills needed, but also the right team culture, a shared understanding of their goals and the contribution they make, and ownership of the future vision. This course will help your team “Get It, Together”.

What does Get it Together cover?
This one day workshop takes a fresh approach to team building, by placing it firmly in the context of your organisational realities and the broader context of the realities of the world in the 21st century. We’ll have fun, but we promise there won’t be any falling backwards off tables or being blindfolded. From the biggest picture of the ways the world is changing, we’ll consider some of the trends in your sector, and what’s happening in your own organisation and what that means for your team. Using a range of tools, the team will identify their skills, experience and preferences and think about these in the light of that bigger picture. The workshop provides a platform for the team to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of each other’s skills, to identify how they want to be as a team to meet the challenges facing them, and to let go of the past and look to the future strongly as one team.
