Team Development and Assessment

Teams go through predictable stages of development. There are some characteristics that differentiate high performance from average or poor teams. Whether you are forming a new team and desire to establish a vision, goals, and clear roles, or you are a team in progress that you want to grow or develop, we can help.

The Caleb Consulting Provides the following team building processes:

  • Team Management Systems
    A proven method to learn 9 key competencies of team success and assess your team’s relative strengths and weaknesses. Since teams are a collection of individuals with a common purpose and complimentary skills, each individual on the team will better understand his/her own work preferences and how their unique personality contributes to team success. Teams will develop strategies to build upon strengths and address areas of development.
  • The Big Picture Simulation

The program lasts less than 1.5 hours and is designed for teams of 5 or greater (large groups can have multiple concurrent sessions.

    Using a survival scenario to communicate and make decisions as a team, the Manitoba Crisis allows a team to experience and discuss how they work together, what results they get, and what they need to do differently for future team success. Teams will identify four stages of team development and if an intact team, what they must do to move to the next level of development.
