SUPPORTING AND DEVELOPING (agile) TEAMS
Team development aims to calibrate and harmonise the interpersonal and task-related levels in working environments. This helps to create an atmosphere of ease and excellence where individuals develop creativity and enjoy their work, thus ensuring a productive work climate where all members of the team can (and will) bring in their specific strengths and align with the team as a whole.
Occasions for team development are diverse, for example:
► Leadership change
► Recombining teams due to structural changes or changed tasks
► Cooperation in agile structures
► Perceived instability of teams over a longer period of time
► Pressure on and tensions in teams that are experienced as severely stressing and possibly harmful to team members’ mental and physical health.
Team development provides a respectful, sensitive, clearly structured and de-dramatising approach that can explore the deeper functions of tensions in a team without blame. The aim is to revitalise the enjoyment of work in a team and build-up healthy team structures that can meet the demanding requirements of highly complex working contexts.
