Teamwork: Leading Effective Team Reviews

This is where you get your team together to assess how your team working is going and what changes you can make to improve it.

LESSON NOTES
============
Review your performance as a team against your goals, objectives and plans.

But this ‘task focus’ will not be as valuable as a focus on your team process in your team reviews. This is where you’ll be able to identify sustainable team maintenance and improvement opportunities.

Facilitate a conversation about how well your team is working together.
Things to consider include in your team review:
1. Interactions and respect
2. Goal, task, and role clarity
3. Collaborative behaviors
4. Communication modes, quality, quantity
5. Meeting effectiveness
6. Skills gaps and overlaps
7. Work and task allocation
8. Conflicts and grumbles
9. Issue handling and problem solving
10. Decision-making
11. Obstacles, blockers, and constraints from outside the team
12. Elephants in the room

Two Great Team Review exercises:
