Identifying and Taming Elephants


The “secrets” to a healthy team are not mysterious or new, anymore than are the secrets to becoming healthier. Hmmm… eat right and get exercise. Who knew? Right?

Why, when we essentially know what we “should” do, why, so often, don’t we do it? And when it comes to teams, why do we allow the proverbial Elephants in the Room (poor performance, awful meetings, disrespect among members, etc.) to go unaddressed? What can we do to make it easier, systematic and routine, to identify issues early, and then find ways to manage them? 

Using brief lectures, discussion and a series of short activities, we’ll explore ways to make those team “shoulds” less scary and get those elephant out of there!

Learning Objectives:

Identify the Characteristics of Effective Teams.

Identify the costs of allowing important issues to go unspoken.

Identify several tools for uncovering underground issues.
