Team detox does what it says on the tin; it clears the air and working relationships of the toxic elements that can foul up the works and make a team sluggish or downright dysfunctional.

Relationships need regular maintenance or they are likely to get into difficulty. The toxic combination of reduced resources plus increased pressure puts extra strain on working relationships because there is no time or opportunity to do care for them.

A team doesn’t need to be broken to benefit from routine maintenance. When I work with a team I show them five practical habits – I call them Team Tools – to clean up and strengthen team functioning. These are useful exercises in team development, but its real value is in helping the people in a team to relate and communicate. Once learned, they can be used regularly to ensure that your team stays healthy, robust and fit for purpose.

Think of it as an annual team detox which will strengthen the team and restore healthy habits. It will also remove the nasties that have crept in through neglect, overwork and inattention.

Used regularly my Team Tools improve collective functioning, raise morale, aid performance and encourage creativity. More importantly they also give value to individual contribution, foster dignity and respect within the team, and improve job satisfaction.

Trying to control the uncontrollable is unpleasant for us, and those around us.
