Team Building Workshop with
Duration: 1 Day Course
A team’s unity stems from the common goals its members accept, but its potential to achieve those goals depends on their ability to work together and understand each other.
Using DISC® Profile as a pivotal tool, this team building workshop motivates teams to work towards high performance and cohesion.
An experienced facilitator will encourage and guide your team members through activities and discussions while they evaluate their effectiveness and define their values as a group.
- Understand your team's stages of team development.
- Evaluate team effectiveness to help you move your team forward.
- Understand different communication and behavioural styles to minimise tension.
- Be aware of your locus of control and how it affects your team.
- Recognise how effort, performance and outcome drive team motivation.
Evaluating your team’s effectiveness
In this team building exercise, the group reviews their current level of effectiveness in a range of areas, from purpose and direction to communication and relationships.
Assessing this can be an eye-opening experience that will begin to motivate them to think and plan for how they can improve.
Profile styles overview
Before receiving their individual reports, team members will be introduced to the DISC® Profile styles that group behaviours into four basic types:
This topic builds on the team effectiveness evaluation by showing how differently people think and behave – even when they agree on something – and helps people see the ‘why’ behind any gaps in their team effectiveness.
Profile individual reports valued at $148.50 per person
Online questionnaires are sent to each person prior to the workshop so that team members can receive hard copies and be guided through how to interpret their DISC® Profile reports in the workshop.
Having a qualified facilitator present at this stage is essential so that individuals understand what the profile does and does not say about them. The DISC Profile® is for observing and analysing behaviour and using this knowledge to improve relationships and outcomes. It is not about labelling people or focussing on weaknesses. It does not measure intelligence, knowledge or skills, and it does not classify people as "good" or "bad".

What causes tension amongst different Profiles
The key to managing tension is to know when to expect pace and priority problems and have a strategy to prevent or deal with these differences.
Understanding your locus of control
When it comes to what you choose to attribute successes and failures to, your choice of orientation or “locus of control” will have an influence on your long-term success.
Internal locus of control: People who develop a high internal locus of control believe that they are responsible for their own success.
External locus of control: Those with a high external locus of control believe that external forces, like luck, determine their outcomes.
Benefits and drawbacks of an internal locus of control
When you believe you have the power to control your own destiny and determine your own direction, you have a strong internal locus of control. In most cases, this is an important attitude to have if you want to be successful.
How and why to develop your awareness of self and others
Developing your self-awareness and emotional intelligence can assist with your own development and team success. However, it is not a once-off activity; it requires your commitment to a dynamic process of learning skills to understand yourself and others over time.
Understanding team motivation
Teams become highly motivated when they can see the link between the effort they put in with the outcomes they produce.
This topic will help your team to understand and apply the simple formula to motivate themselves and their colleagues.
