Team development is often associated with team-building games. Images of exercises on the high ropes course, rafting or other outdoor activities arise in the mind's eye. This may work. However, our approach is to focus on improving teamwork and improving communication, working through conflicts, talking about the team goals and aligning the team's expectations of the leader and the leader's expectations of the team.
As soon as we have a feeling for what goal is to be achieved with the team workshop, we consider which methods we can use to approach the goal. We take into account the culture of the team, previous experience with team development, openness to this form of working, seniority, playfulness of the team and much more.

The art is to implement the agreed topics from the workshop. Which brings us back to the topic of "personal responsibility". A workshop is not a miracle cure and we are not magicians. We see a workshop as a kick-off for a change process. Changes need time and the will to do something. We see ourselves as companions of these processes and are happy to support you with advice and action.
The team (IT support) had the desire to work better together. Due to the diversity (age, seniority, qualification) and the high workload, conflicts and illnesses were increasing. The goal of the workshop was to build more understanding for each other, but also to find concrete approaches for better cooperation.
International sales team: The aim of the workshop was to work out a common (team) goal, to improve cooperation and to strengthen the image of the department into the company. The challenge with this request was: we only had three hours. Sometimes it is amazing how much you can achieve in so little time. :-)
