How It Works
Creating Team Synergy gives participants a well-rounded learning experience, balancing facilitator instruction with private reflection and group interaction. Through the combination of two HRDQ learning instruments, two hands-on games, an adventure simulation, and small-group activities, participants learn more about themselves as team members and how effectively their team functions.
Have you ever witnessed a winning sports team, a well-rehearsed orchestra, or a synchronized surgical unit and felt the commitment and energy the team demonstrated? What you saw was more than just teamwork — it was team synergy, a phenomenon that occurs when a team achieves greater results than the sum of its parts.
Give your team the opportunity to experience that phenomenon with Creating Team Synergy. A complete one-day program, Creating Team Synergy focuses on 5 key issues that hinder team effectiveness.
Using experiential tools that include learning instruments, hands-on activities, and an interactive team simulation, teams gain a clearer sense of direction, clarify roles and responsibilities, improve operating processes, and bolster both interpersonal and interteam relationships.
- Pinpoint the team's current level of development
- Understand team roles and operating procedures
- Recognize team member communication styles
- Identify blockages to high performance
- Explore five factors to help achieve synergistic performance
- Define criteria for direction setting
