Building 1, Room E100D


Effective teams know team how they interact has a significant impact on their performance, and yet very few organisations know how to proactively manage this. Professional teams flourish when an open and “safe-fail” behavioural environment is fostered and there is an understanding of the performance drivers in a constantly changing environment. This interactive workshop introduces creative and pragmatic ways to engage participants through activities based on The Organizational Zoo metaphors. The activities generate an atmosphere of trust and fun, involving participants to experience the impacts of behavioural diversity and help them to be comfortable with uncertainty and different approaches and perspectives.

This workshop draws on a wide range of principles and tools to holistically develop participants’ awareness of the impact of team interactions on the development of trust, relationships and partnerships. In the workshop participants engage in action learning for professional and personal development by APPLYING proven theories and practices. By interacting with each other around the concepts they experience the benefits greater behavioural awareness brings to the way we make decisions and interact with others, making it a rich learning opportunity with impact.
