Group work is becoming increasingly common in the business world.
But how do we make our work in teams and meetings as efficient and as effective as possible? Leading theories of organizational development offer multiple ways of viewing group dynamics. Together, they provide a set of tools to help foster better outcomes in all types of group situations. Examples of these tools include the chaordic design process, trust theory and process-oriented psychology.
Join us and be ready to discuss your thorniest group challenge. You’ll have the chance to work with others to see your situation from different perspectives. You’ll leave this interactive session keen to revolutionize your work in groups!
