ef provides development programmes for all teams — from self-managing cells and matrix-structure project teams to governing Boards. The ef approach helps the team focus on tasks and relationships.
The ef approach to team building and team development
Many team building events concentrate only on psychological or relationship
aspects. A complete team development programme must also look at the processes,
procedures, systems, outputs, standards and other “task” components of team
The ef approach involves affirming team purpose, goals, functions and targets to concentrate group energy on achieving results. Thus ef team development centres on task and relationship priorities. Just getting on well together is not enough — you must deliver the team objectives.
However, we might struggle to deliver the business if our relationships or dynamics are not right. You must look at the human dimensions in the context of the tasks to really improve effectiveness and efficiency.
How ef team development works
Through ef team development, team members can understand what makes them
similar or different from their colleagues. Through this greater understanding,
members can communicate more effectively, allocate tasks more successfully and
make more reliable decisions.
The ef approach to team development often uses a collective appraisal of team behaviours. These behaviours are characteristic of successful teams. Through asking “How are we doing?”, members understand how their individual contribution affects team success as well as their personal success.
