Virtual Team-Building

When your team’s spread across the globe, what happens to collaboration? How can you build a team that works creatively together when you rarely, if ever, meet up? Thanks to improving technology and economic pressures, distributed teams are now the norm - but common team-building approaches don’t address that reality, instead demanding an expensive physical meetup. In this session we’ll explore creative team-building strategies that have
worked well without a physical meetup, and the principles behind them. I’ll share the detail of one specific approach that you can use with your own distributed team.

Workshop—Uncovering Your Team’s Unknown Knowns With Clean Language

How can you and your team uncover information, thoughts and feelings from just below the surface - the things people don’t know that they know - without breaching trust or invading privacy?

Clean Language offers a straightforward process to do just that, supporting clear communication and effective collaboration while preventing those “Why didn’t you say so?!” scenarios. 

This interactive half-day workshop will provide specific tools to share immediately. For best results, bring a colleague!
