Team flying – Where do you start with a team still flying paper aeroplanes
Introduction
[Visual of Red Arrows flying in formation, think bubble from person on the ground ‘Wow! what a team’.]
You too can get your team to ‘fly’ so it achieves far more than it ever could as a group of individuals.
Where do you start with a team still flying paper aeroplanes? How can you develop a team which rarely meets up? How do you sort out the conflict and come to shared decisions? And how can you work well with other teams?
You have a common goal that everyone subscribes to. You use simple methods to nurture your group of individuals into a performing team. You make sure you have a balance of roles and that relationships run smoothly. You maintain a team identity and learn to make decisions together. You look outwards to other teams you work with.
Into Action
Working through the four sections of this unit and their associated Into Action activities will help you to:
assess how effective your team is now
identify ways to ‘grow’ your team
find ways to provide missing roles in your team
plan to deal with a relationship problem in your team
identify ways to move your team closer to being an ideal team
review your links with other teams.
The Unit Into Action at the end of this unit pulls these strands together by asking you to identify three priority areas for developing your team, and to discuss and agree an action plan to address these areas with your team.
To start thinking about teams, answer these two questions.
1 What teams do you participate in:
· at work?

· outside work?

2 What is the goal of the team you lead at work?
[space to write about 3 lines]

We’ll be drawing on your experience of these teams at various points in this unit.
