Team Flow is an experience felt by the individual and team as a whole where every member knows where they are supposed to be, what they are supposed to be doing and is performing their function flawlessly creating feelings of positivity, connection, accomplishment, mastery and meaning. (Van den Hout & Davis, 2019).
When we are in flow, we are ‘in the zone’ and fully immersed. According to Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the psychologist who first recognised and named ‘flow’: “often hours seem to pass by in minutes… time seems to pass much faster”.
When people are in flow, they are at peak levels of performance (producing more creative work) and experience greater wellbeing (flow is linked to improved quality of life, increased self-efficacy and a stronger sense of self).
This is known as Team Flow.
Our TeamFlow programme is a series of learning interventions that helps teams explore their ability to create the essential conditions for team flow and build a more psychologically safe, innovative, and engaged team who balance wellbeing and performance in their every day interactions.
