Team development

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 is therefore dependent on both the individual’s talent for solving a particular task and the ability to combine talent in such a way as to achieve the set objectives most effectively.

In any team, there are four basic functions that together draw the human map by which we should orient ourselves.

Team development – growth through collective strength

Most outstanding achievements in both business and sport are built on 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 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 that spirit – that sense of shared strength – creates the tremendous energy, determination and insight that leads to victory.

Team development process

In the team, the meeting between ‘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 conditions that must be met before we can even talk about creating a team. We call these basic prerequisites the TEAM PRINCIPLE.

The above should be seen as the “basic law” of all team development and in the actual development process there are a number of stages we have to go through before we reach the goal.
In the clarification phase we create a common knowledge and reference framework about the team and development and we analyse the group’s starting position.
In the development phase, we define the team’s goals, competences, tasks and success criteria and anchor them through a series of learning processes.
In the action phase we try out the environment, learn by trying, follow up, evaluate and feel that we are moving forward.

As a team, we develop individual talent for the common good
