Working is a Science Team Spirit is an Art!
In search of the team's "own goal"
To build upon an awareness of the individual's true self
who may then contribute to, and learn from the team. This
in turn ensures autonomous team development.
This is the first in a series of learning experiences designed
to create ownership of the lessons learned from the largely
self generated programme. The framework outlined below sets
the scene. As individual team members increasingly accept
responsibility for their own development the content will
vary within a democratic process.
The event is to be regarded very much as work as at the
usual "place of work", although the emphasis is
on the human , or "process" aspect of work as
distinct from the task or associated procedures.
Two days are spent as a team in "no frills" accommodation.
The event is not (necessarily) a reward for work well done,
but an individual investment of your time in your career
and the organisation . The goal is to build a working relationship
between the individual and the team based upon a mutual
promise to give and receive of your best.
This is the essence of team working as distinct from taking
what you can get . This will always be less than what you
can receive in good faith! Don't believe all you hear, --
experience it! Actions speak louder than words!
Each topic is an experiential learning event rather than
talk and theory. A simple learning cycle is offered at each
stage and suggestions given as to how this might be used..
The event uses "live" information in the here
and now, but is not contrived in any way. Nor is it a variation
on Sensitivity Training which is regarded as destructive.
Use may be made of the outdoors, by agreement within the
team. This will involve observation skills as distinct from
"body building" survival courses! We seek to build
inner strength in the heart of the team .
Let your light shine!
