‘Every team requires unity. A team has to move as one unit, one force with each person understanding and assisting the roles of his teammates. If the team doesn’t do this, whatever the reason, it goes down in defeat. You win or lose as a team as a family’ Jack Kemp
It’s not easy starting a new job especially when a team understands each other so well.
How well do we really know each other in the work place?
What do team members really think of each other?
How do we communicate to each other what matters to me and how best to support me to help me the best I can be?
Solution to the problem: One Page Profile
I can’t take the credit for this genius and simple idea.
I have ‘pinched with pride’.
My good friend who works in another organisation shared her one page profile with me.
I in turn have shared this fabulous idea with others in my trust.
It’s easy and simple to use. ‘Does what it says on the tin’
One page profile can be displayed in the staff room, office wall – anywhere for other team members to read and understand YOU.
Ask new members of the team to complete this before they start their new role.
Ask well established team members to complete one as part of a team building exercise.
It’s also a great tool to use to prepare for your dreaded appraisal.
A one page profile can provide any individual an opportunity to reflect.
