How We Do It
The Team Elements
There are 5-core elements in the existing of a team namely Vision, Leader, Followers, Process and Culture. Based on this principle, we design our team building modules and activities.
The 5 Team Elements
A team is just a group of people in an organization or a company. And defined targets are given to them. This is also known as organization or company’s vision. A person is appointed to lead the people towards the set targets. One of his critical roles is to inspire the people and get the people to accept him as their leader.
The leader shares need to achieve this target. The team co-creates a shared vision. The team seeks a “process” to achieve this vision. The team institutionalized an “agreed process”. The team explore common “values” to sustain it self. Finally, the team establishes a binding “culture”
