Teaming models


I use an outdoor exercise in my team learning programs which brings outcomes like engagement, commitment to the task, big picture, team objective over individual goal, ideas sharing, handling disagreement, respecting members views, trust, recognising strengths,appreciation, celebrating small victories and achievement etc. After the experiences and debrief I often wish if I could use a coceptual model which can hold the outcomes and reinforce learnings for the participants.

Ideas and thoughts of all are welcome.

  1. Two methods
    The outdoor exercise sounds like an interesting activity to participate in.

    Two models come to my mind, so I share them with you as follows:

    1. After the exercises, get the delegates to create a mind map of the activity based on some questions you raise. For example where was the benefit, where was the failure, did they feel closer to other team members and so on. Mind maps are incredible in organisaing their thought and also helping them to remember the key concepts. Since they make the mind maps themselves, the retention should be higher as well.

    2. After the exercise, walk through the debrief as usual getting everyone to understand the theoretical aspects. Now repeats with another similar exercise this time expecting them to put what they have learned into practice. So if there was communication failure in the first exercise, they should address that in this one. This way, they get to try first and fail, learn theory, then try again and understand how to succeed. This model is known to be very effective in training.

    For similar concepts you can look into the design of our training materials which use a similar approach.

    Hope this helps.
