The Team Canvas
The Team Canvas offers a comprehensive, 90 to 120 minute workshop template that helps teams to work through their group dynamics, to resolve conflict and align the members.
When to use The Team Canvas?
As a leader or facilitator, you experience moments when you need to bring team members together, clarify their goals, figure out their motivations and help them to be more aligned and productive. Use Team Canvas to start a structured conversation with the team and bring everyone on the same page.
Team Canvas works across multiple touch points:
creating a team;
clarifying goals and addressing overall team performance (e.g. when you feel stuck as a team, or when you need to get a lot of stuff done);
growing and onboarding new team members;
general alignment sessions (recommended every 2-3 months).
