How to deliver an amazing training course on group dynamics. Join the ranks of Apple and HRD Gateway

We’re fascinated by how groups operate within companies.

But, from our perspective, group dynamics in most organizations are flawed and unplanned. Often, organizations just seem to let group dynamics simply emerge naturally with little consideration or awareness that they can dramatically determine the success of the company in question. Actually, we are a little dumbfounded that companies can’t see that this is an area that deserves continual attention.

So to add as much value as we can, we’re going to share training material that you now use to deliver a training course on group dynamics skills.

Let’s explore what content you can receive.

Course overview

In an effort to provide you with even more value, we’ll show you how we would use the content provided to deliver the key sections of this training course.

Group dynamics – So how should you go about teaching your audience to understand group dynamics better?

Well, the beginning is always the best place to start. Use the content provided to present a definition of group dynamics. And then explore the different types of groups that can exist in the workplace. Once your audience begins to understand the group dynamics that can exist, it will help them work more cohesively within workgroups.

Performance factors – Although identifying performance factors may sound easy, it isn’t always. Your audience will need to learn about group performance factors such as norms, size, composition, and how factors may help them. Use the content to discuss these areas and then continue by focusing on investigation, socialization, maintenance, resocialization, and remembrance.

Try to incorporate examples from your experiences with groups, as this will foster more engagement. Understand that if these examples and experiences might seem small, they’re hugely crucial to embedding learning. Your next job is to share the content on the Phases Of Socialization. And, to make this as concise as possible while still meeting your learning objectives.

Group cohesiveness – For most of us, when we find ourselves in groups that are not cohesive, we can tend to start to work more on our own. However, this is often detrimental to the overall performance of the group. Yes, we may be crazy busy, but we are also getting stuck in behaviors that are not favorable to the group. Use the content provided to explore the factors and consequences of group cohesiveness.

Communication – Group communication is at the center of the conversations we can have about workplace teams. Experience demonstrates that a group or team structure that possesses a robust communication avenue will be more successful. And at a group level, they will be more cohesive, better able to manage change and cope with disturbances in their work environment.

You’ve likely seen some experiences that you can share that have made you think about this as well? In a time when we’re balancing trying to maximize our communication, you should use the content to focus on the different types of communication that can exist within groups.

Stages of team development – How well does your audience understand group dynamics in the workplace? Experience tells us that a lot of people may be afraid of moving outside their comfort zones and trying something new.

Often this is born out of a fear of the reactions and possible non-acceptance of group members. Many will see this behavior with a particular understanding and even acceptance. But, this reaction can be challenging for some members of your audience to accept. Use the content in this section to outline teambuilding skills and the stages of team development – forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning.

Management team roles – Thankfully, at this stage in the course, you’ve shared most the contents – and the benefits to your audience should be emerging. This awareness will lead to an increasing sense of the power of group dynamics but always to ways team dynamics can be improved.

When it comes to team-building and teamwork, it’s the detail that often makes the most significant difference. Use the materials to explore Belbin’s management team roles and encourage your audience to share their experiences and opportunities for improvement.

“During the early days of HRD Gateway, a 40,000-member international NGO dedicated to excellence in HRD/HRM, I got to know Oak Training programs. I became one of his early customers. I had clients in Asia who wanted training in certain areas. Instead of searching through the net for material, I logged onto his site, found what I wanted, bought their programs, and customized them to suit my client’s requirements. The process saved me much time. Later, I bought the Oak Training full set of courses. Over the years, I saw Oak Training grow from a small operation to what it is today. That takes dedication and focus. Because they allowed me to download updates and new versions of these titles, I found I did not have to go to another provider for my raw material.”

G K Lim – President, HRD Gateway (NGO dedicated to excellence in HRD/HRM/Talent Management

“I have been using several Oak materials for quite some time. I found the content excellent with comprehensive details. These course materials are a well-structured series relevant to today’s HR professional. Information is well organized and easy to understand. Having the information available online speeds up cycle time and increases flexibility. Overall a welcome addition to any HR managers toolkit.”
