Depending on someone requires behaviours and language that build trust and respect.
Probably the most famous teamwork theory is Bruce Tuckman’s “forming, storming, norming model” which recognizes Teams do not start off fully-formed and functioning, but require team building techniques to move from groups of individuals, to cohesive, task-focused Teams.
The most dangerous stage is Storming, with disagreement about objectives, strategies, communications and outcomes taking up so much time, there is little left to achieve anything.
And with disagreements and no commonly accepted rules about managing it, conflict grows.
If you want to build a team that is Engaged, Effective and Enjoyable (E3) or you are in or lead a team which is dysfunctional, we have a wealth of experience in helping teams develop the trust and practices they will need to achieve their full potential.

“The biggest communication problem is that we do not listen to understand – we listen to reply.”
All our courses focus on developing skills that improve relationships and most of them involve effective communication.
Our courses propose new ideas and approaches to communication strategy, an understanding of human psychology and motivations, together with highly practical language and listening skills, using demonstrations and supported practice to build confidence.
The majority are in-house courses, from one to three days over several weeks, to allow participants to use their new skills, then bring their experiences back to the next session to discuss and refine.
Usually run in groups of 8-10 people to maximise interaction, attendees complete pre-course questionnaires to identify individual skill development needs and bring examples of the issue they face so the training is relevant to their work lives.
As the time is split 50:50 between discussion and practice, we ask that attendees read the comprehensive course manual provided pre-training.
