Process of the Program
Participants come together and create a trusting community.
The principle work for the team during the forming stage is to address lots of questions from the team, reflecting both their excitement about the new team and their roles. The magic begins from this wonderful space.
During these stage the team comes up with clear structures, goals, directions and roles so that the participants begins to build trust.
Also, during this phase, participants are trying to see how the team will respond to differences and how
it will handle conflict.
During the engaging stage, the participants start making a conscious effort to resolve problems and achieve group harmony. There might be more frequent and more meaningful communication among team members, and an increased willingness to share ideas or ask teammates for help.
Reflection and Celebration
The team may find that this is an appropriate time for an evaluation of team processes and productivity. Here, participants share insights into personal and group process and are aware of their own (and each other's) strengths and weaknesses. Also, this will be the time for celebration of the journey so far.
Action at Home
Some journeys never end, now the participants go back to their communities and here the participants begin their journey from self to society as active citizens. They will show the world 'change can happen through us, and not
just to us'. They drive the change themselves.
