TeamUp

Feedback: the most normal thing in the world?!

Feedback is essential for good performance. Practically speaking, however, giving and receiving feedback is experienced as complicated or difficult. Because it is a sensitive issue, information can be withheld and not shared.

TeamUp trains teams to appreciate that feedback doesn’t have to be emotionally charged but can be functional and helpful, so everyone can experience the value of a strong flow of feedback.

TeamUp re-introduces the team members to one another in a new, positive and engrossing way. While playing the game, you discover each other’s qualities and challenges and start discussing issues that really matter to your team. Playing TeamUp ensures that feedback becomes a normal part of daily working practices and contributes to the team’s results. Consequently, everyone within the team and the team as a whole can work more powerfully and more successfully together.

“Everyone was always so “nice” to one another in our organization. Opinions remained unspoken or were shared behind colleague’s backs. TeamUp ensured that feedback was not seen as something unkind and complicated, but as a normal way of dealing with colleagues in a professional environment. Now, it’s impossible to imagine life without it, leading to cooperation and team results improving by leaps and bounds.”

How does TeamUp work?

TeamUp trains team(s) to recognize the effect of giving and receiving feedback in a variety of ways. Colleagues provide each other with feedback whilst playing a number of interactive games. The challenges increase as teams progress through the game.

TeamUp consists of a number of inspiring elements. The playful nature of the game encourages the team to share feedback freely and colleagues gain valuable insight into team dynamics and mutual cooperation through their experiences. For example, each team member has information that can be used to help others. If information is shared well, everyone can deliver the best results. TeamUp enables the transfer of insights to the actual work situation and to having conversations with one another about it. Learning from experiences, being successful together and seeing feedback as an essential part of that achievement.

Do your colleagues manage to keep giving each other information to help someone else win? And what can the team do to improve the flow of information and feedback to achieve more success together as a team?

TeamUp enables the team to transfer insights to the actual work situation and to have conversations with one another about it. Learning from experiences, being successful together and seeing feedback as an essential part of that achievement.

Good conversations in a safe environment
Your team gets to know one another better. Colleagues share personal information, give each other feedback and discuss the answers between themselves. InContext’s professional facilitator leads the conversations in the right direction, ensuring that even difficult subjects are put on the table and that they’re discussed in a safe environment.

Effective and powerful
Because of TeamUp’s unique design, your team will have high value conversations, get to know one another better and experience the power of feedback. During the game you’ll have regular moments for reflecting on the lessons learned, which you’ll then be able to put into practice. This creates a very effective learning circle which will allow everyone in the team and the team as a whole work together more powerfully and successfully….and, it doesn’t take up a lot of time.
