Numerous studies show that teams have better predispositions for innovation, identify mistakes and problems faster and easier, and find better solutions to challenges. At the same time, experience shows us that working in a team can be frustrating, exhausting and inefficient.
This workshop will reveal possible reasons for that and offer practical solutions and suggestions on how to create and maintain good team dynamics, which is very important not only for us and our associates, but also for the success of the project. Through a series of practical examples, the workshop will reveal what specific skills need to be improved in order to become a productive part of a successful team. At the same time, participants will be introduced to useful tools for planning, organizing and leading a process that involves a group of people who are together looking to create positive value, a good project or a functional service.
In the first part of the workshop, the focus will be on existing practice and common routines during communication at work, as well as on common mistakes that we all consciously or unconsciously make when cooperating with others. Some of the theories and possible reasons why we are often not productive enough, or we have a problem cooperating successfully with others, will also be presented.
The second part of the workshop will focus on practical tools that will help us more easily manage processes, people, time and resources in day-to-day or project work. Through several practical exercises, participants will have the opportunity to understand the value of each team member, as well as to better understand their role in any team.
