“It is almost never about the best player in your team and almost always about the best player for your team. This is the essence of team culture”.

Team
Effectiveness

Personal Best designs 
and delivers programs that accelerate the development of team cohesiveness and reinforce the fundamental attitudes and behaviours adopted by high performance team members.

Our workshops are customised to each organisation’s needs and may include:

1. Team skills and knowledge
Provide an opportunity for team members to develop skills and knowledge about aspects of teamwork such as cooperation, communication and trust.

2. Individual and team awareness building
Increase individual team members’ awareness of how they function in a team and help them better understand the team’s diversity.

Help people clarify and develop an understanding of the team roles that must be evident within a team in order for it to be effective.

3. Assessment tools
Use assessment tools, such as the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation (FIRO B), to facilitate individual selfawareness and support improved teamwork.

  • Myers Briggs Type Indicator is used to help team members understand themselves and how they function in a team setting; identify areas of strength and possible areas of weakness for the team; clarify team behaviour; help to match specific tasks with team members; and supply a framework in which team members can understand and better manage differences and build relationships.
  • Firo B is a reliable and valid psychological instrument that gives valuable insights into the needs individuals bring to their relationships with other people in the team. It measures how much INCLUSION, CONTROL and AFFECTION are wanted and expressed by team members. Firo B helps individuals become more aware of how they can meet the interpersonal needs of team members.

4. Team building activities
Team building activities provide an opportunity for teams to experience cooperation in a light-hearted environment, improve relationships and team skills and understand team dynamics and team building processes by working as a team to achieve a goal.
