Facilitating Team Development in Embedded Organizational Work Groups
DAVID R. SEIBOLD
University of California, Santa Barbara
Over the course of more than three decades, working alone for the most part but occasionally with collaborators, I have formulated three methods that I use in consultations involving team development. I have employed these methods in interventions to enhance teamwork in embedded organizational work groups (Seibold, Hollingshead, & Yoon, 2014). These team development methods include “team process consultations” with one or more embedded work groups that take place over extended periods of time and include activities to develop teamwork along each of four dimensions and in a specific order; “team workouts” with single embedded work groups or cross-functional teams, or even with multiple groups simultaneously, that occur during relatively brief time periods and incorporate activities intended to aid members to identify problems in their unit(s) and how they will redress them after the intervention; and variations in these two team development interventions that promote members’ and my “critical praxis and reflexivity.”
