A group should work as a team, but one team member doesn't show up at meetings, another is doing all the work of the others, and nobody in the team dares to give critical feedback. Usually these problems are handled by a supervisor. What if the team worked as a community-led team, without a supervisor?
Working in a community-led team challenges the team members to grow as people and to take responsibility for the whole group. The key word here is communication.
This book presents the model of a community-led team, which can help a team to learn step by step to work without a supervisor, and to further develop the team's previous working methods.
“With the help of this model, we started to understand what teamwork is about. We lacked many of the basics, and therefore we couldn't cooperate in a natural way around work tasks. By focusing on the right matters, we fixed the team's internal communication, and we are able to react quickly to changing situations.”
