Signlines, within-group dynamics, raises questions such as:
- “How do we learn to see the bigger picture?”
- “How do I know where I fit into this whole system?”
- “How do I identify and build relationships with the people who are most significant to me?”
- “How do new organisations establish shared and agreed operating procedures – and then implement them quickly and effectively?”
The element of competitiveness that inevitably develops raises energy, which does not detract from the sense of ‘whole team’ which is sought due to the inbuilt review process.
