Team Performance Practitioner with David Sibbet

Using Visual Tools for Commitment, Innovation and High Performance



In order to support teams to achieve higher performance, a clear model is needed. The Drexler/Sibbet Team Performance™ Model, the starting point of this workshop, explains the seven-stage process that teams encounter in their work. To resolve the challenges of each stage, specific questions need to be answered by the team. When the questions of a particular stage remain unresolved, the team's attention is not available to focus on the next stage, and team performance remains low. David Sibbet, the co-author of this model, will explain the ideas and the process theory that underly it.

The Team Performance Check-up will also be introduced in the workshop. A powerful assessment tool, the Check-up is a 50-question online questionnaire that addresses the seven stages of Team Performance. After every member of the team completes the survey, the report provides an overview of the stages of the team-building process and which ones are resolved or unresolved. This gives coaches, facilitators and team leaders insight about where to focus on in team-building activities that will support the team to achieve best results.

The third part of the workshop is training in the strategies, interventions, exercises and visual tools that will prepare you to support teams in resolving each of the seven stages. Several of these tools will be demonstrated in the workshop.

Upon completion of the workshop, participants become certified Team Performance Practitioners and can use the Team Performance Check-up in training and development of the teams they are working with.
