How to Do Appreciative Inquiry Team Building
Steps for running a successful Appreciative Inquiry based Team Building Event. Transform your workplace with a positive culture. The Appreciative Inquiry based teamwork approach supports the trend towards a more positive focus on strengths and what-is-working...rather than the old-style problem solving approach.
Make sure that the entire group is involved, from all levels.and make it clear that this is a POSITIVE process and negativity will not be entertained. Make it clear to everyone upfront that the focus and discussions will aim to build on strengths, past positive experience, and what is ALREADY working in the team, and what else can be done to enhance this. Make it safe for participation by everyone. Set ground agreements of what attitudes, comments and inputs will be allowed in the team building process – avoid naming, blaming and shaming!
Set up a trust-level scale on the wall and invite people to mark their present team trust scores on the wall and move them throughout the day.Talk about what impacts and influences trust levels, and what can be done to improve them.
Do a 5 minute imagining / visualisation "travel to the future" of what you'd like an ideal workplace to look like, based upon the info that came out of the previous DISCOVERY sharing.
Take action... Document and display Stop Start continues and regularly discuss how you are maintaining the agreements. Through regular AI based teamwork building activities you can begin to create a Culture Shift from negative to more positive environment. This brings more available energy into your teams and the workplace and create a more effective, attractive and appealing organisational culture.
Remember Employee engagement is controlled by Leadership and management – So get smart and get appreciative fast!
- Also Remember that Happiness at Work drives productivity and performance as much as leadership effectiveness – So help staff to BE “Happier at work” too.
- Make the learning fun, experiential and encourage participation and input from every person.
- Use fun activities in between sessions to create energy, connection, communication and build more trust.
- If a consensus arises about what needs to be done to improve some area....take visible action to rectify and improve it ASAP and keep on providing feedback. Regular and clear communication is important.
- It is a grave mistake to ask for input and then not act on it.
- It doesn’t take long for people to see that you don’t value their input, and thereafter just disengage Trust is Bust....again!
- Often the biggest challenge with staff and team building in the workplace is there is a lot of “TALK” from leadership and management, but very little “WALK”.
- Too many leaders think happy staff are more productive – this is not always true. Resilient, challenged, engaged and happy staff deliver exceptional results in a sustainable manner.
- But remember it takes time to rebuild trust. It takes time for the people to see that you are really walking your talk. It takes time to change old habits and entrenched cultures.
