  • In the groups formed for the activity ask participants to generate a one line definition of a team. Teach point: What is a team?According to Webster's dictionary, “A number of persons associated together in work or activity”. When one person cannot accomplish a task alone and several individuals must co-operate to accomplish a mission, you need a team. The better the cooperation, communication and co-ordination among the members, the more efficient the team. Why do Teams work? Often those at the top of the organisation are challenged by what changes are necessary within the organisation. Teams provide a valuable source of feedback. A team setting opens up new communication lines. Because of the necessity of communication within a team, members encounter problems and challenges in early stages and are able to head them off with greater efficiency and success. Each team member has specific talents. By combining individuals in a team, all of these individual talents are pooled together to work towards a common goal.

  • Activity: Envisioning the Goal
  • Expectation settingConventional wisdom says managers should specify the steps that employees need to take to accomplish a specific task. But great managers define the outcomes they seek and let each person use her individual talent to achieve them. For example, while great managers do not usually mandate steps to be taken, they do provide specific direction when accuracy or safety is involved, or when a company or industry standard is at stake. But even then they don’t let the steps obscure the focus on the outcome.Specificity is critical to purpose. Two questions have been developed that managers can ask themselves to ensure that they are using purpose as a lever to effect positive results. The first, is asking oneself if you are teaching your staff about a purpose. Secondly, ask if you are ensuring your staff follow through on the shared purpose.
