When teams are geographically distributed across many locations, and rarely meet in person, ‘soft’ issues become even more vital. Think what it would mean if your team members were exceptional with virtual technology, rapidly gaining alignment and resolving conflict. Super useful!
Who’s it for?
It’s for distributed teams that need to improve their skills in online interaction and to conduct themselves more effectively when working remotely…but who are stuck in some way, perhaps with communication difficulties, so they are not fully delivering on team objectives.
What do you get?
Teams learn how to establish a supportive team environment where people are constantly working at their best. Participants will learn in the best way, learning in small groups and directly applying new ways of working together that are effective even in volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous situations.
“This has been one of the most impactful and energizing courses I have followed. I participated in the female talent development programme with very good trainings on how to be a manager. This kind of course was not part of it, but should be.”Alexandra Antoniadis European Commission
How is it delivered?
There are six online workshops, each lasting 2 hours. There’s pre-work and voluntary personal assignments between each module.
Each module is built around a tool from the Collaboration Dynamics ‘soft’ skills box (based on the precision communications methodology Clean Language).
- Workshop 1: Getting clarity
- Workshop 2: Being your best at work
- Workshop 3: Feedback that delivers
- Workshop 4: Overcoming obstacles
- Workshop 5: Creative conflict
- Workshop 6: Making choices that stick
Each module’s structure uses remote-meetings best practice. Elements include activities in pairs and small groups, group brainstorming, individual reflection and some casual ‘water-cooler’ time, as well as some use of simple online collaboration tools.
“I have learnt a wide variety of soft skills, which have enabled me to become an active listener, strong collaborator, conflict manager and constant feedback giver. On this journey of self-awareness, I have greatly benefited from in-depth information and diverse group exercises, which have anchored the theory in practice.”Ioan-Andrei Cursaru, European Commission
