Team development

Team development is about managing human processes for the whole and being good at something for the individual.

A team is therefore dependent on both the individual’s talent for solving a specific task and the ability to combine talent in a way that most effectively achieves the set goals.

In every team, there are four basic functions that together form the human map we need to orient ourselves by.

Team development – growth through shared strength

Most outstanding achievements in both business and sport are built on the ability of people to complement each other.

We tend to focus on the unique individual performance because it’s 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 each position 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 the spirit – the sense of shared strength – creates the tremendous energy, will and insight that leads to victory.

The team development process

In a team, the meeting of the “we” and the “I” is central.

It is often a difficult meeting where conflicts, lack of loyalty, envy, etc. arise. Therefore, there are a number of basic prerequisites that must be met before we can even talk about creating a team. We call these basic prerequisites the TEAMs FOUNDATION.

The above should be seen as the “basic law” of all team development, and in the actual development process, there are a number of phases we must go through before we reach our goal.
In the clarification phase, we create a common knowledge and frame of reference about teams and development and we analyze the group’s starting position.
In the development phase, we set the team’s goals, competencies, tasks and success criteria and anchor them through a series of learning processes.
In the action phase, we test the environment, learn by doing, follow up, evaluate and feel that we are moving forward.

In the team, we develop each individual’s talent for the common good

The Teams Foundation

The basic assumptions of the we

  • We recognize that we are mutually dependent on each other
  • We recognize that together we are strongest and most effective
  • We have a shared vision and a common goal
  • We have shared values and rules of the game
  • We have clear responsibilities and competencies in relation to our goals
  • We have a common understanding of our success criteria
  • We know our opponents and are aware of the obstacles we face

Basic assumptions of the ego

  • I recognize that people are different
  • I know myself and my strengths and weaknesses
  • I know the strengths and weaknesses of others
  • I respect others for what they can do
  • I accept my role and function in the whole
  • I will constantly improve my skills in relation to my part of the task
  • I accept that conflicts are a natural part of getting better
  • I share responsibility for the relationships in the group
