The Situation

The neuro surgeon department at Aarhus University Hospital wanted to focus on world class teamwork. What is great teamwork? What is particularly important in a university hospital context? And how do you make great teamwork happen – concretely?

The Solution

A team of key stakeholders were introduced to a teamwork model aiming at giving participants a clear overview of all aspects of great teamwork. 3 focus areas: how to get ahead, how to get aligned and how to get along. This model made it easy for participants to relate to important teamwork aspects of their own jobs.

I presented the model to my audience and subsequently facilitated a dialogue and discussion on how the model might apply to their own situation. The result: an open, frank and inspiring discussion that give new energy, motivation and drive to setting high standards for team efforts. And it provided participants with a wealth of ideas on how to improve teamwork in concrete and practical ways.

“An incredibly inspiring workshop” – a comment from one participant representing the general feeling of the group.
