ESADE Alumni Careers invites you to a flash session about commitment in work groups.
One human psychological need is a sense of meaning, the belief that the things to which they devote time and energy are worthwhile. To find the meaning that helps people commit, it is sometimes enough to rediscover or update the reason why a venture was undertaken.
One of the best ways of creating a challenge is to set oneself a goal and draft a plan of action to achieve it. The challenge will be to achieve the goal using this plan.
This workshop will examine the three conditions needed to develop a model of teamwork based on consensus:
- Each team member gives the group their opinion as objectively as possible, separating facts from interpretation.
- The others listen to their colleagues’ opinions with a willingness to change their opinion.
- Everyone gives way for the sake of the team in order to reach a consensus.
Finally, in order to maintain the commitment achieved, the expectations agreed to by the members of a group will be reviewed.
Everything that is heard is forgotten.
Everything that is written down is remembered.
Only things that are practiced are learned.
