Teams6 When Should Teams Be Formed? When complex, cross-functional processes are addressed When pooled expertise is needed When buy-in to change is critical When it is determined that shared leadership of a project is preferred to a single person When too much time is required of an individual When true synergy is needed to create innovative solutions When collective strength is desirable However, teams are EXPENSIVE!!! Don’t form a team when one is not needed!

Teams9 Meeting Management Techniques: Temperament Instruments Temperament - A set of inclinations each is born with… it's a predisposition to certain attitudes and actions. Temperament instruments (e.g., Keirsey Temperament Sorter, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) examine these innate facets of personality to arrive at an integrated picture of an individual Then, the “profile” of a team can be determined and team diversity can be understood and managed
Teams10 Meeting Management Techniques: Temperament Instruments The sixteen types (e.g., “ENFJ”) are based on the four pairs of personality dimensions: Extroversion (E) vs. Introversion (I) Sensation (S) vs. Intuition (N) Thinking (T) vs. Feeling (F) Judgment (J) vs. Perception (P) No single letter should be taken as naming a type of person; the letters merely suggest stronger or weaker tendencies of a person’s makeup No temperament or personality type is good or bad; what is important is that teams have balance
Teams11 Meeting Management Techniques: Brainstorming Goal: to generate a large number of ideas Steps Encourage creativity / no criticism Involve everyone Record ideas No discussion/ clarification only Combine only ideas that have the same meaning Number the remaining ideas Rank the ideas Note that it is best to begin with a warm-up activity! (and don’t forget about introverts!!)
Teams12 Meeting Management Techniques: Consensus Decision-Making The Recommended Method for Most Team Decision-Making Insures that Decisions Made Are Implemented The Method: Everyone has been heard The decision-making process was fair Everyone can (and will!) actively support the decision Everyone Does Not Have to Agree!
Teams13 Team Synergy Problem Or Opportunity Diversity Synergy (The Result) Synergy capitalizes on diversity, but requires a win-win attitude and empathic listening to be successful! (S. Covey) Listening Win-win
