360 Solutions Facilitator Kent Hutchison lead a group of 80+ Charity Champions in a session on teamwork early last month. Kent talked about building relationships before expecting members to perform well as a team.
Kent had participants draw their own “coat of arms” to share in small groups. Each person drew what was most important in their lives. Sharing helped build relationships by opening up about more than superficial topics.
Participants also took a short quiz to find out more about their specific personality type. Each of the four main personalities corresponded to types of birds: eagles (direct, leaders), owls (technical, analytical), peacocks (social, motivating), and doves (peacemakers). Once in a group based on their personality, participants put together presentations about how they could work better with other groups.
