Cooperation; teamwork

In productive teams and working groups each member makes his or her contribution and staff and managers take on the responsibility for common aims. Tasks and areas of responsibility are clearly defined, communication is open and respectful and any problems or differences of opinion are actively addressed.

Wherever people work together, crises may arise, despite the greatest efforts of all concerned, or bad habits may creep in. Trust and motivation may decrease. Often it is difficult to get out of a negative situation on one’s own.

We are well acquainted with the requirements of effective teamwork and with the dynamics of team processes and have the necessary knowledge as to how these processes can be reflected, properly influenced and, if necessary, redirected.

We take on the following tasks on behalf of our clients:

  • consulting and further training for managers in the development of teams, groups or working groups,
  • drawing up and presenting team development processes,
  • running workshops: defining the present situation; clarifying a mandate, roles, tasks and processes; examining current dynamics; conflict management.

«I have learned, and I am fully convinced of the fact, that as human beings it is in our nature to grow. For if we cease growing, we are either at dying or being suffocated.» Virginia Satir, 1916–1988

The content of this statement has deeply affected me. In my opinion it applies equally well to individuals and teams as to organisations. Throughout my work I do my best to encourage this growth, this kind of development.
