Mastering Team Dynamics
Live Online Training
Registration now open for February 2021 cohort! Limited to 6 seats!
If you’ve found that, despite your actions as a coach or manager, your team just doesn’t seem to be able to get past their challenges and work as the high performing team you know they can be, this is the course you’ve been looking for. Learn what needs to be in place and how and when to intervene in order for teams to become high performing.
Mastering Team Dynamics is back!
This time online, for anyone from anywhere, and with an added focus on how to master team dynamics remotely. Taking place on 6 Fridays starting February 5th, 1pm – 5pm Stockholm time (CET/ GMT+1/UTC+1), we’ll go through the fundamental concepts and learn how to recognize the dynamics at play, how to intervene strategically, and how to lead in a way optimized for the stage for example helping teams get started fast, and helping with open (or hidden) conflict, and much more. We’ll cover everything you need to know in order to master team dynamics, but this time, there’s are added bonuses: a 1-hour personal coaching session with me for each and every participant, free open office hours during the course, and free templates and guides that will help you making team dynamics work in a remote working environment.
What will I learn in this course?
- How to create the conditions necessary in order for teams to become high performing
- How to recognize the team dynamics at play in your team.
- How to match interventions with your team’s real needs (not just their symptoms)
