Team Work: Getting and Staying on Track

Effective team work means getting everyone on the same track. But unclear goals, undefined roles, interpersonal issues and other obstacles can impair a team's abilities. This module helps build an understanding of the team development process:
  • How to get beyond the early development stages of team development
  • How unclear roles, goals and procedures impact effectiveness
  • Overcoming negativity, interpersonal issues and hidden agendas

This module is designed for members of teams who must effectively work together to obtain results.

This module can be presented in two to four hours, depending on participants' skill level and teaching objectives. The module includes:

  • Break out groups to solve team problems
  • Discussion on techniques for team development
  • Exercises and presentations
  • Practice sessions and role plays
The participant's workbooks contain reference text and exercises, are bound and three hole punched. The module is divided into three sections, one for each phase of training: the Pre-Workshop Assignment, the Workshop Material, and the Post-Workshop Action Items. Participant's workbooks can be used for classroom instruction or on a self-paced basis.

The leader's guide contains the same material as the participant's workbook, with the addition of a section of introductory notes, answers to exercises and explanatory margin notes. The leader's notes contain tips and techniques on setting up and administering the session, checklists, and other teaching aids. Other beneficial components include:
  • A listing of suggested videos which complement the material.
  • Notes which highlight key points, provide tips for training, and detail competencies to be gained.
  • Margin Notes on the workshop materials which guide the leader through the material and indicate when to ask questions, encourage discussion, use flip charts, break into groups, and refer to specific material.


By the end of this module, the participants will be able to:

  1. Identify the phases of team development.
  2. Recognize obstacles to team development.
  3. Understand the importance of clarifying goals, roles, and procedures.
  4. Understand the importance of resolving interpersonal issues and identifying hidden agendas to effective team building.
