Limited Capacity seats available

Imagine your team has a new project and needs to work with Sally in Accounting. When you first approach Sally about the project, she wants nothing to do with you or your team. She tells you that a couple of years ago she had another project with a team in your department and it did not go well. For this new project, Sally wants to hire external consultants because she feels that way she will get what she wants. This relationship is much like that of estranged family members – something happened in the past that has driven a wedge between them. So how do you bring them back together?
In this workshop we will help you to recognize familial relationships in your workplace, identify the potential dysfunctions in them and explore techniques for getting Sally and your team working together.

Learning Outcomes:
  • How to identify family relationships in the workplace
  • How to identify specific dysfunctions in these relationships
  • Mediation techniques to apply to improve these relationships
