January 17–21, 2011, at the Westford Regency Hotel and Conference Center in Westford, Massachusetts
Working in groups, teams, or task forces to solve problems, develop plans, address issues, identify opportunities, and increase productivity is the way of organizational life. Most training for facilitators, consultants, managers, group leaders and group/team members provides tools, techniques and skills for applying problem solving models, developing agendas and staying focused on the tasks of the group. Still, many groups fail to reach their potential, or fail completely, most often because of unaddressed group or interpersonal dynamics. These are the maintenance issues of group process.
Leaders, managers and facilitators are often unaware of or unequipped to address this important dimension of groups and teams. This dimension is often the difference between success and failure. To be successful in helping groups to reach their potential, individuals charged with helping groups reach their potential need to understand and be able to help the group access their core issues, needs, and motives to unlock the group’s energy, creativity, and commitment. The challenge is to support both the task and the maintenance work of the group to help the group fulfill its purpose, build its capacity, and to further its development.
This workshop provides training in diagnostic and intervention models, builds an understanding of when and how to apply these models, and supports participants in developing the skills of group process consulting. The purpose of this workshop is to increase the skill and ability of participants to develop and enhance the performance and effectiveness of groups and teams through interventions which are powerful and appropriate.
