Section 1: Getting Back to Basics

Everyone needs lessons in teamwork

No matter how strong a leader you are or how effective your team is, you will never be able to abandon teamwork training altogether. It is critical that you continue to reinforce the importance of teamwork among employees as well as offer team members ample opportunities to improve their teamwork skills. Use the advice presented in the following pages as a refresher course in basic teamwork values for all your employees—even the top performers.

If you are leading a new team—or striving to turn around a low-performance team—the basics presented in this training kit offer you a foundation on which to build a high-functioning, high performance team. Without these basic principles and core values, your team may function, but it won’t be truly successful.

  • Ways to show employees respect
  • Tactics for building cooperation

  • Methods for managing tricky employees

In Section 2, listeners will learn:

  • The difference between “groups” and “teams,” and why teams are more successful than groups

  • Defining the core value. A brief summary of the value and why it is a critical component to teamwork
  • Signs that the core value is lacking among team members. Learn which behaviors or actions indicate that your team could use some training in the core value. This section will help you prioritize your training needs. If your team indicates all of the signs in a given area, you know to start there first.
  • How to improve teammates’ skills in the core value.This section provides you with tips for addressing negative behaviors, increasing knowledge and skills, and making necessary changes to ensure that everyone is committed to teamwork.
  • Exercise. Complete these exercises with your team to teach employees the 12 Core Values of Teamwork and to reinforce your message that teamwork is an expectation of yours and the organization.
