Multi-professional Team Development

With the expansion of all-day schools and inclusive classes, the demand for cooperation in schools is increasing. Teamwork and team development are no longer limited to teachers, but also include special education workers, integration workers or educators. In this book, Elmar Philipp highlights the factors which make for successful multi-professional team development: clear role allocation, team culture as an attitude and set of values, regular training and, last but not least, communication and feedback.

This 2nd edition focuses more on the kind of mindset which helps to achieve multi-professional teamwork and, in addition to psychological security, includes ambitious performance standards and self-competence. A comprehensive section on methods provides some practical ideas and includes tools for self-reflection and impact orientation, questionnaires for measuring team spirit and guidelines for mindful communication in team meetings (mindful meetings).
