Team + Work = TEAMWORK

“Teamwork” can’t exist unless you have a motivated “TEAM” and are willing to put in “WORK”.  In this presentation, we will discuss how to facilitate a staff development session that demonstrates how important effective communication is in building a strong, cohesive and productive team that works together to reach common organizational goals. The best part is that you can do it with little to no money using supplies you probably already have in the library!

Communication is not easy…it takes WORK! A staff that communicates effectively understands that communication is affected by the varied personalities and temperaments of the individuals who make up the collective “team”.  It is key that team members learn one another’s communication styles and, more importantly, develop strategies for constructively articulating individual wants and needs while considering the needs and wants of other team members, so that they can collaborate together to further the organization. For example, think of the library as a giant wheel, and the only way it can move forward is if all of the individual gears inside of that wheel—all staff members from all departments—work together.

In this webinar you will learn four different games/activities that you can do with your staff during a staff development session that demonstrate the importance of communicating clearly rather than assuming that others can read your mind:

  • Salt And Pepper
  • He-Said-She-Said Game
  • Minefield
  • Googly Eyes

Finally there will be a culminating activity that will bring it all together and allow your team to participate in an exercise that will require them to work together and use effective communication practices.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn to facilitate a staff day on a shoe string budget
  • Discover ways to demonstrate to staff the importance of using effective, articulate communication skills
  • Learn an activity that will allow you to put effective communication and positive team work into practice
