Team Devlopment

It’s really not that difficult

Team development – deliver it successfully!

The Team Development Concept from IPA Nordic, you will be trained and certified in the use of tools for developing effective teams.

We have put together a series of tools and coupled them in an intuitive and logically structured process that you can deploy in your own teams, or teams you help. You will be trained in the use of the tools and can concentrate on facilitating in-depth team development processes.

The tools give you both structure and content in the processes, so that your role as facilitator is to support participants’ reflections on themselves and their own role and function in the team.

The Team Charter – growth through collective strength

Most outstanding achievements, in both business and sport, are created on the basis of people’s ability to complement each other. We tend to focus on the unique individual achievement because it is easier to identify with the person who scores the decisive goal, but in the vast majority of cases victory is a product of the collective spirit and ability to staff individual positions with the most suitable people.

A team is a group of people where the whole is stronger than the sum of its parts, and where that spirit – that sense of shared strength – creates the tremendous energy, determination and insight that leads to victory.

Team development is about managing human processes in relation to the whole and about being good at something in relation to the individual. A team thus depends both on the individual’s talent to solve a particular task and on the ability to combine talent in order to most effectively achieve the goals set.

This is what a typical process looks like

A typical team programme consists of a number of tools and processes which together create a deep reflection for the participants. Participants become both more aware of themselves and their own role in the team, and more aware of the common conditions for the team’s success.

Step 2 consists of a basic introduction to IPA analysis, where each participant is asked to prepare his or her own IPA personality analysis.
Step, where all team members complete an IPA team analysis, which reveals the way the team functions.

Structured process that includes a comprehensive suite of process tools that together provide you with a roadmap for delivering high-impact team development.
