In Jobcrafting you take responsibility for making small changes in your work that result in more motivation and less energy loss.
All small changes are in your own hands. No permission is required. The adjustments are without disadvantaging colleagues, in line with organisation mission and team objectives.
An approach to expand perspectives on job design to include proactive changes that employees make to their own jobs

What Teamcrafting does for us?
Together, puzzling the division of work ...
In Teamcrafting you puzzle together your division of work by knowing each other's fit and unpleasant tasks and taking this into account. The solutions make the work a little better for everyone, taking into account the purpose of our team, the competences and the resources. The changes are co-created and can be implemented immediately.
... by knowing each other's type of tasks (FUELD) and taking this into account.
Teamcrafting leads to performing teams!

How I Crafted My Job
Meet Laura, 32 years old mother trying to balance her work with her family life.
3 things Laura implemented after doing Jobcrafting
Change the order in which you do your tasks!
Accept what you can't change,
Change what you can't accept!
Set up your small work experiment!
I used to start my day reading my emails and before I knew I was already half through the morning. I couldn’t finish what I planned to do and that frustrated me enormously. Now I structure my day into blocks of tasks and I start with a task which I need to be focused on.
It’s so simple.
I realized that for the last years I have been trying to do the impossible. If things go wrong, I now always ask myself: what is my responsibility and I’ll take it. But for things that are not in my hands I surrender and accept, …with a smile.
A huge difference!
You want to start a task; something you like or you are talented in? Set up the smallest experiment possible. Learn from doing it, or from the feedback you got. If it is successful make the experiment bigger !

How I Crafted My Team?
Meet Andreas, 45-years old struggling to supervise his team.
3 concerns Andreas had about Jobcrafting & Teamcrafting as a supervisor
is it not organising chaos?
Jobcrafting is not something that a team leader or HR needs to allow someone to do, simply because everyone is already doing it. It is only not done in a structured way. When you organise it the results will improve the way you collaborate and it reduces stress. People learn to take more responsibility for their own work.
When you touch the work of colleagues, are they gonna like it?
When you hold a dialogue about the division of work, colleagues have more understanding of each other's concerns, fears and goals. We see that afterwards they are more open to help each other in finishing the work.
But we have done a teambuilding!
Most teambuildings has been made to forget the work and to do a fun activity together in which we get to know each other better. It takes about 2 weeks and then the effect is gone.
When you hold a dialogue about the division of work, colleagues have more understanding of each other's concerns, fears and goals. We see that afterward, colleagues are more open to help each other in completing the work.
3 advices from Andreas to set up Job- and Teamcrafting
Get the right information
I had to attend a workshop to understand and overcome my objections.
During the workshop I did my own Jobcrafting exercise.
Organise a Jobcrafting coaching training
When you have tried to motivate people with performance appraisals you must have found out that this doesn't work. Using visual task analyses to understand peoples FUELD tasks has given me more insights then 7 years scoring people's performance. That is why you need to have Jobcrafting coaches.
Run a few experiments
We used the knowledge of an experienced teamcrafting facilitator. It was too risky and too time consuming to figure out how to do this ourselves. Moreover we now had a neutral observer.
