Team vitality

A Workshop

September 17th and 18th, 2019

“I’m a leader with no previous experience of this field. I left feeling I’d learnt a great deal about about teams I lead and am a member of.”

Peter Newman

Who is this workshop for?

If you are interested in creating the conditions in which teams can thrive and are a member of a team, a team leader, facilitator, HR, L&OD or behavioural change change professional, then this workshop is designed to resource you.

Over two days you will get fresh and applicable insights into the geology that lies beneath the geography of teams you are connected to or lead.

If you are ready to broaden your view of teams and team dynamics, if you are interested in supporting flow and vitality in teams then these two days will bring you fresh clarity, energy and focus.

What will you take away?

This workshop will leave you with fresh insights but also a number of practical things that you can do with the teams you lead, are a member of or influence.

There will be several opportunities for you to bring your own challenges and questions connected to a team. You will be able to see what really needs attention to resolve apparently intractable issues, conflict or inertia. 

You will come away with practical actions you can take as well as an understanding of the importance and impact of the cycle of joining, belonging and leaving teams.

You will also get the opportunity to explore the use of systemic exercises, interventions and system-orientated language that creates lasting embodied change in teams. You will see what breaks the limiting repeating patterns in teams and how to identify them.
