Team Building – Football Team


Part 1

A non league football club has been having a bad season.  Towards the end of season and with only a few games to play they have yet to win one match.  Obviously they are not a rich club and so have not had funds for providing the best strips, turf etc.

All team members are de motivated and see no reason for trying to win.  The manager and coach are both at a loss for ideas and feel that there is now no hope.  They have a match due in four weeks time with their greatest rival. A win may be the magic ingredient to put some life back into the team.

A local millionaire sponsor has offered to provide unlimited resources to help the team achieve the victory over their rival. 

You have been employed as motivational  consultants.  Discuss ideas and make list of ideas.  What can you do to give this ailing team a sporting chance?


Part 2

Now Take the list of ideas and identify a work situation to correspond with each e.g. change the strips might correspond with new uniforms that are more serviceable or more fashionable.

Part 3

Do you have any points that you may wish to raise to management and do you need to change your behaviour in any way to help the team win?


[ Back to Treasure Chest ]

".. one simple game contained in it practically all the lessons that one needed about teamwork, involvement, mutuality of respect, the ability to recognise contributions, no matter where they come from, the importance of multiple skills, and the need to stay together, and produce a solution which was good enough"
