Making Groups Work

Participants receive individualized feedback on their interactions with teammates during a real-time (in-person or online) group problem-solving session. The focus is on what interactions communicate implicitly about us and our approach to professional relationships. In the session, we explore how different ways of interacting can interfere with collaborative work. Through detailed analysis of the video-recordings of the interactions with teammates, participants will learn about how they manage the complex and often hidden interpersonal dynamics involved in collaborative work. They will leave the session with a framework to help them map and manage interpersonal complexity for the purpose of improved relationships and team performance.
• Duration: 1H
