Introduction

Imagine a team development workshop that exceeds anything you have ever experienced.

Why do some groups perform better than others? What kinds of behaviours tend to characterize effective groups? And — perhaps most importantly — how can group members improve the way they work together to maximize the results of their efforts? Our team building and interpersonal skill workshops provides answers to these critical questions. Like people, groups have distinct “personalities” or their own “styles of interacting” or way of working as a team.

These “group styles” are reflected in the way group members approach the particular task, decision or problem and work with each other as a team. Groups are made up of individuals, the interpersonal styles adopted by a group are directly related to the styles exhibited by each of its members.

Like people’s personalities, group styles can be positive and effective, leading to high-quality solutions to which members are committed. Or they can be negative and defeating, leading to solutions of marginal qualitity and acceptance. Working effectively within a group involves assuming responsibility for your part in what gets accomplished. Success increasingly depends on one’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Our team building workshops help you positively influence these group processes.

Team building is the intervention of choice

Team building has come of age. While other types of training interventions have become passé, team  building — in a variety of forms — has evolved into a frequent “intervention of choice.” Managers in both profit-making and not-for-profit organizations recognize the importance of quick responses to crises, thoughtful planning, and the full use of human resources in solving complex problems. Moreover, organizational subunits are becoming more interdependent, requiring teams of managers and their staff to work closely together.

Our clients consult with Peak Experiences for their team formational and developmental needs around these four common areas:

  1. New Groups – Early Team Formation
  2. Team Improvement
  3. Team Issues – Difficulties
  4. Team Mergers or Rapid Growth
