Team Development

A solid team always delivers a higher performance

Cooperation and team spirit at all levels characterise a successfully operating organisation. How does a manager keep your organisation vital, even when far-reaching changes take place? The Team Development training course teaches managers practical methods to keep a team intact. Team Development is not only of vital importance in the integration of departments and during mergers. A solid team always delivers a higher performance.


Team Development consists of four phases and is, where needed or desired, composed in co-operation with other parties that were carefully selected by Kenneth Smit.

1. Intake
During this phase, the trainer visits a company (in consultation with the management concerned). The aim of this visit is on the one hand “image” and on the other hand “company orientation”. This input is obtained by interviews with members of the management and the management team. At the same time, an objective is determined together with the customer that the team would have to meet.

2. Scan
By means of a coordinated self-research, insight is obtained into the characteristics of the different team members. Furthermore, there is a short meeting with each team member. With this, a picture is obtained from the internal image and all personal ideas present.

3. Gap-Analysis
All data obtained from phases 1 and 2 are processed in a Gap analysis. With this, the degree of imbalance is shown in relation to the vision with regard to “the perfect team”.

4. Best Approach
This phase concerns a document in which the findings from phases 1, 2 and 3 are put into words. The second part of the document contains a plan of attack (Best Approach). The Best Approach is about an enumeration of a number, selected by Kenneth Smit on the basis of preliminary examination, of modules with which the observed imbalance can be restructured in a very efficient way. The document will be the reason for a second meeting at management level. On the one hand, the results obtained till then will be evaluated here and, on the other hand, the proposed ‘Best Approach’ will be discussed.

In addition to a traditional training course, it is also possible to link the course to a humanitarian project or initiatives considered to be socially acceptable.

Module structure

Kenneth Smit is highly interactive. This especially applies for this team development, in which doing as well as thinking will play an important role. The first matter of importance is always: surprise requires inventiveness!
