  4. 4. Team Dynamics • If you plan an effective teambuilding event, you should understand the 3 phases in Team Dynamcis: • Feel as a team: most companies tend to forget this important aspect. If people don’t feel emotionally connected, they will never perform as a team. • Act as a team: to act as a team, teammembers need specific skills like leadership, delegation, organisation, negotiation,... • Perform as a team: to realy achieve expected results, teams need to focus on clear objectives and have to keep constraints into account. • The Hercules Trophy has a strong focus on Feel as a team. We create a platform where people can connect easily on an emotional level. Hercules Trophy 2010 | October 28, 2009 | slide 3
