I was invited to Kuwait to run a STARS Team TIMEWhirlpool workshop. The aim was to facilitate a workshop for a group of women engineers in Kuwait. My host Eng. Bashayer Al-Awwad set up the workshop exclusively for Kuwait women engineers so they could learn modern methods of team formation (team building or growing depending upon your view), as well practical teamwork techniques. The event was sponsored by IEEE Kuwait section and I represented IEEE Region 8 Professional Activities in my role as a professional trainer and thought leader.
The workshop covered:
- The individual - STARS personal theme in brief.
- Thinking for individuals and in teams.
- The impact of knowledge.
- Differences between groups and teams.
- What makes a team.
- The 4 C's = vitamin C for teams.
- The roles in a team.
- Edward DeBono's 6 Hats run the STARS way.
- How shared goals in themselves are not the difference between a group and a team, but how the goals are set is! The STARS Team TIMEWhirlpool.
- Prioritizing goals using the TIMEWhirlpool
The workshop met the serious fun criteria as the photos show! When participants enjoy themselves, they learn and remember more.
