At Potentials Realized, one of our main focus areas is working with teams We work with teams of all kinds - project teams, intact teams, virtual teams as well as groups that are being called a team but are really a group.
Teams usually don't naturally excel - like most living things they benefit from some care and attention. Teams also benefit from structured time focused on helping them get to know each other, their roles, styles and strenghts.
This year we've had a variety of posts focusing on team development as well as virtual facilitation.
Here are links to 10 of my favorite posts on things you can do with your team - from questions to actual activities:
