Dear group members,

February’s topic for our monthly get-together is about improving teamwork skills.

Whether you are a master of one or a jack-of-all-trades, in today’s world none of them brings about success if you are unable to work as part of a team.
The need for effective teamwork is critical for any business, as most of our jobs involve interacting with others that are not even in the same line of profession. Yet, there are not so many training options about the topic outside the organisations.

The seminar will answer questions such as:
- What are the key factors for an effective, high-functioning team?
- How can you better perform as a team member/leader?
- What is your preferred (unconscious) behaviour within a team?

After a brief introduction on teams and team working, we will share our first-hand experiences as team member/leader. Then you will be given the chance to take a questionnaire to better understand your behaviour within a team and results will be discussed in plenary. Finally, a case study will be presented and you will be invited to role-play in a work simulation and given feedback at the end.

What you will take away from the event:
- acknowledge your personal teamwork strengths and weaknesses
- identify your areas of development when joining a team
- observe and appreciate other people’s teamwork strengths and weaknesses and use them to build mutually advantageous relationships
- recognise the potential for friction within a team and effectively manage conflicts
- plan and build your career on jobs that require the teamwork abilities that are your natural strengths.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
- The event will be held exclusively for InterNations and will be in English (as well as materials and presentation). It can be also held in Italian if need be.

- The price includes a contribution for conference room rental, one drink of choice and one finger food dish.

See you there!
