Purposeful Teams Intervention™

arrow down image

Purposeful Teams™ is a powerful and participative team development intervention that moves teams to purpose-led execution. The intervention is applicable to natural task and project teams at every level of the organisation, utilising a team building process that adapts to the organisation's and the team's context.  

What will be covered?

Through the Purposeful Teams™ intervention process, teams are able to establish and internalise the reasons for their creation. Individual members and the team as a whole are awakened to the characteristics of an effective team and the significance of their roles, resulting in activation around purpose and the unearthing of key commitments required for team effectiveness. The intervention consists of a two-day workshop followed by two half-day review processes, all of which are facilitated by a member of the global network of Level 1 WorldsView™ Facilitators.



The Purposeful TeamsTM intervention fuses organisational development and traditional training in a workshop format. It delivers team effectiveness by supporting the team in anchoring their purpose, refuelling team motivation, identifying milestones as well as integrating task, relationship and process into a conversation-based delivery format to create committed, effective teams and team members.

The Purposeful Teams™ Intervention examines the team's context, mandate, milestones and members in the realms of Head (knowing), Heart (being) and Hands (doing). It brings participants together repeatedly, to explore and cover all aspects of the team's purpose from the organisational perspective, the team development perspective and the individual perspective.

Understanding their individual roles within a team enables members from different backgrounds to function coherently as a unit, boosting team effectiveness and improving the overall performance of the individual as well as the team. This in turn encourages team motivation, as individual members of a team are able to see how their involvement impacts the organisation as a whole.
