Cross-functional teams usually need some time to work together in a truly agile and collaborative way. This is not a question of the methodology, which is usually quickly understood and adapted, but of the way the team members think and behave - as shown in the iceberg model. The following exercises are designed to help you as a coach to minimize misunderstandings caused by misdirected communication, hidden agendas, etc. and to make issues obvious that are swelling beneath the surface. You can understand the exercises as small interventions that playfully bring your team back together as a team and thus, enable real collaboration and co-creation.
As a coach, you are strongly challenged in these exercises - it strongly depends on your moderation, side coaching and guidance for reflexion how strongly the team understands the existence of behavioral and mental hurdles and how these can be overcome together. Together with the team, try to collect the experiences you have made with these exercises and try to establish the learning from them as a kind of team manifesto "how would we like to work together and develop". It is important that the members of your team work this out themselves but under your guidance leading them there by asking specific questions and giving them hints to discover toxic behavior. So let's get started!
