Advice for Parents and Carers

Team Building

Team building is geared toward improving cooperation, effectiveness and relationships within a team. Team building measures can provide support at various stages of a process: when a team is being newly set up, if there are conflicts within the team or if people have recently moved out of or into the team.

If you are looking to organize a development measure together with your team,
talk to us. We will advise you and put you in touch with an expert who can support the process.
