Being a good team player is a basic leadership skill. The two-day workshop will encourage people in research teams to perform their activities not only to a qualitatively high expert level but also in a versatile and creative manner vis-a-vis their communicative challenges. You will get the chance to clarify your individual team player/team leader skills and to compare them with those of the other participants in terms of similarities and of differences, becoming increasingly aware of your overall impact on team work. The workshop demonstrates to participants the most important and most typical processes involved in a diverse team’s professional work. Attention is drawn to previously ignored issues. Moreover you will have the opportunity to view teams from varying angles. Having gained this new perspective you will become more aware of your own potential as part of a huge team potential which may arise from diversity.This applies also for your peer group.
An increased level of mindfulness in terms of social group processes will be encouraged by directing participants’ attention to interesting group dynamics. By so developing further both the participants’ personal communication, and diversity-focused skills, you may develop an interest in contributing to an improved team spirit at your own work place. At the end you will be able to consider the ways in which you would like to develop yourself in the future with regard to your team work. This may result in the transfer of workshop experience to your day-to-day work.
With the aid of a strategy skill-test, of different team exercises, role-plays and feedbacks you will be able to define your individual role and position in teams. Are they rather important team players or do they possess attributes of a well-respected team leader? How can a team profit from applying their particular skills? You will thus attain a new, more all-embracing, view of yourself.
