Emergentics - Crafting Team Norms and Rules of Engagement
Give Your Team the Edge with Powerful Success Tools and Strategies
Crafting Team Norms and Rules of Engagement is a fun and engaging workshop that highlights how when team members do not share the same values, conflict can arise.
For example, some team members may place a high premium on punctuality, while others do not. Without agreement on how a team should operate, seemingly small differences could result in frustration and impact productivity.
In a 2012 Google study of team performance, researchers found that team norms had the biggest impact on team success.
In our Crafting Team Norms workshop, teams collaborate on a four-step process to develop a set of operating norms, ground rules and we highlight the importance of:
Team norms and psychological safety
Emergenetics Attributes and how these play out in the work environment
Develop a process of crating team norms together
Work together to create an action plan
