Team of Teams Webinar series

About the series

The ultimate goal of this webinar series is to help teams to work more effectively in an inter-disciplinary way to deliver mission success in a complex system. The challenge of local healthcare is in being able to adapt to the evolving and complex needs of a community, focusing on helping people stay fit and healthy rather than simply reacting to illness and injury.

The Concept

This concept of “Team of Teams” has been taken from the military and adapted for the heal and social care context. Teams can either be far more or far less than the sum of their parts. Within the complex system of community healthcare, great teams will not be like great machines, they will be like great organisms. The focus must shift from understanding parts to understanding the whole – the only context in which the parts make sense. It’s not enough for a team to perform well in isolation because this makes them mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive (MECE). Despite this, the fundamental principles of a high performing team are still essential to embed, in the same way that individual ability is still important within a team.

This is a series of 4 webinars:

Webinar 1: Team of Teams

In this webinar, we will be establishing the concept of “One Team” and what it means for us on a practical, psychological and professional basis while exploring practical examples.

Webinar 2: Connected Thinking

In this webinar we learn how to create a unified purpose to give us consistency in how we prioritise our goals, solve problems, make decisions, and visualise success.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Understand your Mission and putting it at the heart of everything you do
  • Create consistency in how you prioritise your goals, solve problems, make decisions, and visualize success

Webinar 3: Connected People

This principle is about enhancing lateral relationships between teams in order to build a culture of collaboration and trust.

During the webinar, you will have an opportunity to explore how to:

  • Enhance lateral communication between teams and building a culture of collaboration not competition.
  • Develop strong inter-team relationships built upon trust and working to your strengths.

Webinar 4: Shared Leadership

This webinar, explores the challenges of being able to influence one another towards the best outcome without formal authority whilst learning together with a healthy balance of support and challenge.

You will be exploring the challenges of fostering autonomy whilst supporting and challenging one another appropriately to drive performance
