Framed

It’s not comfortable being framed. But sometimes you just have to face up to what you have,
or haven’t, done. Still, you can always behave better next time.

How?
Ask students to use this simple table to record their observations of the group’s behaviour.
This might be the result of feedback from Observer Servers, or might be based on a video or
audio recording of the group at work, or just from memory. The rule is: record specific
behaviours, don’t name names.

What I see myself doing that helps the group What I see myself doing that hinders the
group

What I see other people doing that helps What I see other people doing that hinders

Following some discussion, it should be possible to recognise the behavioural changes


needed for the group to operate more effectively. The aim of the second stage is or
everyone to agree on a few general changes, for example: everyone will speak one at a
time.

Individuals can then be encouraged to make personal changes, for example: I will ask
people what they think more often.

Both the corporate and the personal agreements can be recorded on the Team Action Plan
and, after a couple more sessions, an assessment of progress can be marked with a cross
on the right hand side of the sheet.
