Are you and your colleagues able to engage in critical conversations, ones that are vital to the health and effectiveness of your organization?
No matter what kind of work you do, authentic communication between real people in real time is the linchpin to the success of your enterprise.
It doesn’t matter if you are a Board Chair, Division Head or an Administrative Assistant: everyone brings their humanness to work. And humans need to practice giving and receiving feedback with authenticity, clarity and empathy. We teach these skills and create contextualized practice opportunities for teams, project managers, department chairs, new hires.
We help people build capacity for (a) communicating authentically, (b) navigating inevitable disagreements, (c) managing strong affects and (d) collaborating successfully. People need these skills to talk about what really matters.
While many people find group work frustrating and a waste of precious time, organizations that appreciate how groups function can make this maxim a reality: A group is greater than the sum of its parts. We offer a framework for understanding the dynamics in group life, and we teach skills that help people realize the full potential of working together in this format.
