Team building: ten carateristics of high-performance teams

Group of employees working as a team


Although teamwork can increase the efficiency and productivity of the group, it may also become a source of frustration and stress. Communication, interpersonal skills, and the ability to set and achieve work objectives are key to working in groups effectively.

This workshop provides participants with an overview of research-supported and applicable techniques for improving team functioning as well as the overall work climate. Participants will be sensitized to the different factors that make a team work well and its members happy and committed.

This workshop will be participative and will involve different applied exercises to ensure participants learn and apply the necessary team building skills and get to better know the other members of the group – all while having fun.

What you will learn


This full day workshop includes different games and activities to make the workshop interactive and the day more fun. It also includes a psychometric test to facilitate the understanding of team dynamics by better understanding member's personality and the individual differences within the team members. Part of the workshop can also be used to work on specific issues pre-identified by team members, such as tackling workload concerns, improving communication or work climate.

Psychometric test – Wave Focus

Saville Consulting Wave Focus Styles provides measures which efficiently assess individual motives, talents and workplace culture in a single questionnaire.

The new short questionnaire is based on the most important facets of the highly valid Saville Consulting Wave Model (as used in the Professional Styles questionnaires) to create a questionnaire that is both short and a strong indicator of performance and potential at work.

The Team Roles Report is based upon the Styles assessment, which explores an individual's motives, preferences, needs and talents in critical work areas. The results are based on a comparison with a group of 1,451 professionals and managers and are presented on a 1 to 10 Sten scale. Saville Consulting's Team Roles model presents 8 different team roles, each representing a different approach to working in a team. This report outlines which team roles Jo Wilson is most and least likely to adopt based on responses to the Saville Consulting Wave Styles assessment. Individuals who prefer different roles in a team can complement each other to improve performance. Outlined below are typical behaviours associated with each role, and the four Wave competency clusters to which they are related.


This workshop is addressed to groups of employees, professionals, managers that wish to strengthen the connection between colleagues.
