Reflection Cafe - 5 Ideas About Teamwork

Duration: 0.025 days
Cost: $0
Course objectives:
Topic Overview

Most people like the idea of being on a team—although working on a team can be another
matter. Not only can frictions create problems; the teams we work on rarely match up with
the ideal vision we have of teams. When we think of a team we draw on images from sport: a
small stable group of people working towards an important common goal. In organizations
we might be on several teams, they may have dozens of people, and not be aligned. And a
team may be virtual, so we may never even meet face-to-face.
In this topic, we will look at the world of teamwork and give some tips to navigate through
the challenges.

The objectives of this topic are to:

- Increase your understanding of the different sorts of teams
you might work on.

- Review some of the research on what makes teams work well.

- Identify something specific that you can do to improve how
the teams you are on function.
