In RMT’s Design a Right-Minded, Team-Building Workshop: 12 Steps to Create a Team That Works as One, the team-building facilitator and team leader meet early on to proactively identify potential issues that could keep teammates from achieving the workshop’s desired outcomes.
This discussion leads to creating preventions that the team leader or facilitator takes to help prevent those issues from happening.
The facilitator and team leader also agree on how to intervene in case the preventions don’t work. Much of the time, however, preventions do their job and make interventions during team-building workshops unnecessary.
