Two decades ago, teams were pretty stable entities. Today’s time however asks for dynamic teams: individuals and core teams who are able to engage in short term collaboration with each other, with experts or other teams to achieve results fast.
This core skill is no longer ‘team building’ but ‘teaming’: simultaneously working on the result ànd creating a context in which it is safe to share knowledge and experience, to innovate and experiment, to challenge and trust each other.
Two prerequisites enable teaming, the one influencing the other:
- individuals, who know their personal needs in collaboration, have the guts to express their needs and are willing to reflect on their personal behaviour and needs;
- a context that is psychologically safe: in which one can experiment, and asking questions, raising ideas and expressing opinions are normal ways of communication, and in which mistakes and failures are treated as lessons.
The Company is a divers party: clients, team leaders and (temporary) team members, and coaches and facilitators who live teaming and it’s conditions daily.
In Teaming Company we are in good company and enjoy challenge and inspiration to develop ourselves and each other, to make the world a better place.
Because that is what we strive for: making the world a better place by optimising the interaction between people. We develop the self-knowledge and self-esteem, interdependence and individuality, communication and teaming skills in a way that the individual can contribute in interaction with others.
In our view each collaboration starts with the individual, just as all beautiful things in the world – and the less beautiful things, which exist as well.
