What is the Team Time session?
Remember the archaeological TV show Time Team? Well, this is pretty much nothing like that, but it will help you unearth the ingredients of an effective team.
This session gives your team a common goal and ensures everyone knows their role. It will help everyone learn how they can best work together, as well as building a picture of who else might influence the team.
How do you run the Team Time session?
Use the following sequence of tactics:
Get the team’s imagination flowing and set an aspirational vision to work towards.
Find out what is driving your team, and what may stop you achieving your vision.
Establish the roles in the team, and what each member does, discusses and decides.
Understand what skills each team member has so you can work better together.
Understand all of the people who have a level of power and interest with your team’s project.
