Of course, the team has to establish itself first.
However, as a rule, one is also very easily distracted from one’s place in the team, especially during intensive contemplation of the present problematic conditions. Very often the other circumstances of leadership and collaboration with other hierarchical levels or departments are cited as obstacles for one’s own better collaboration or efficiency.
Whether this is happening for reasons of suppression or whether it should actually be taken seriously and addressed – in every case, agile focus must first be directed towards one’s own responsibility. “How do I, or rather, how do we actually call ourselves into the woods of collaboration every day?”
For this reason, a myConsult Team Building (Agility) programme always deals first with the level of those who want to use it to grow more strongly together. One looks to oneself first and then, when one has gained appropriate clarity, one also has the opportunity to invite another department or hierarchical level for a second phase of Team Building (Agility). One then already knows one’s own pattern of team culture and no longer has to confront it in the presence of another level.
The option of adding another team or hierarchical level is a frequently used variant of team orientation. By consolidating one’s own team, one already has the strength and desire to create mutual understanding on a wider level as well.
