Process of the Program

WSST Journey.png

Days 1-3

Forming

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.

Days 2-3

Framing

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.

Day 9

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.
