Great Talks at Medway – “Better Together” building teams and making them work

Over the years it has been observed that some individuals  fail to blend into the spirit of the group work and in some cases where the individuals are engaged in the group work it does not seem to be fruitful.  This is true both for formal study groups at schools and universities , corporate world and yes, the family life.  Some would say ‘they are set to fail from the start’ or ‘naturally some should fail’.  What is the reason behind this?  If such occurrence is natural, surely it can be recognised and/or predicted, and hence, can also be omitted.   This lecture will give an insight into the Belbin personality types and Myers-Brigs type indicators followed by an applicable framework that can be used to compile successful groups which will bypass storming and norming phases set to perform from the start.

The talk will be given by Dr Anna Romanova, a Senior Fellow of HEA who has been undertaking research in Teaching & learning over the past few years with direct interest in gamification, student group work and motivation.  She is a leader for BA Programme Portfolio at AEM and is committed to maintain high standard of student achievements in yearly Group Business Project competition where external clients take voluntary part.

Anna holds a BEng degree in engineering and management and a PhD in Engineering.  She is also a Professional Member of the Institute of Leadership & Management.  Anna has been with the University of Greenwich  since 2013 and prior to that used to work at Grontmij Consultancy delivering projects for the Royal Air Force.

The FREE talk is being held on Wednesday 13th February in the Wardroom in Pembroke Building on the University of Greenwich (Medway Campus) and starts at 6 pm, followed by light refreshments.  There is free parking on campus after 5 pm arrival.

Admission is by registration only and places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.  To register your attendance or for further information call 01634 883495 or email:  .
