Team structural constellations and intra‐team conflict

Team structural constellations and intra‐team conflict Purpose – This contribution aims to evaluate structural team constellations (STCs) – a team intervention related to the better known family structure constellations. Design/methodology/approach – In total, 67 team members from 14 working teams carried out an STC. They were surveyed at three measuring points by means of a questionnaire on their evaluation of task and relationship conflicts and on their satisfaction with the therapeutic alliance with the constellator. Findings – Stable decreases were shown in both conflict variables. Participants who evaluated the conflict variables more positively over the course of time were also more satisfied with the therapeutic alliance with the constellator. Practical implications – Given the low time requirements involved, STCs can be considered recommendable compared with other team interventions . Originality/value – Although constellations are experiencing a boom in German‐speaking countries, there are hardly any studies in English on this method. This paper is one of the first contributions towards the establishment of the method in the Anglo‐American area. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Team Performance Management Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – This contribution aims to evaluate structural team constellations (STCs) – a team intervention related to the better known family structure constellations. Design/methodology/approach – In total, 67 team members from 14 working teams carried out an STC. They were surveyed at three measuring points by means of a questionnaire on their evaluation of task and relationship conflicts and on their satisfaction with the therapeutic alliance with the constellator. Findings – Stable decreases were shown in both conflict variables. Participants who evaluated the conflict variables more positively over the course of time were also more satisfied with the therapeutic alliance with the constellator. Practical implications – Given the low time requirements involved, STCs can be considered recommendable compared with other team interventions . Originality/value – Although constellations are experiencing a boom in German‐speaking countries, there are hardly any studies in English on this method. This paper is one of the first contributions towards the establishment of the method in the Anglo‐American area.
