Limited Capacity seats available

Antifragile relationships provide the foundation & freedom for teams to benefit from conflict and be more successful!
Teams and organizations, at least successful ones, are based on relationships that "work." People need to be free to collaborate and interact with others on their teams and in their organizations. We should be moving beyond strong relationships to antifragile relationships, which benefit from adversity! We will explore this concept by learning about and practicing a number of tools you can use with teams you are on or working with (scrum teams to leadership teams).
Help your team(s) move towards a space where they can thrive. Tap into practices to continue moving your relationships to a more antifragile position to improve your results and success. We will practice building a team alliance and plan for potential conflicts in advance. We will also explore a number of common issues contributing to toxic team situations as well as antidotes. Like agile, antifragile relationships is a journey and mindset. The ideas we will explore will first focus on ourselves, looking at what we can bring to the table and what we can do and be. Expect to work individually and with others in this interactive workshop.
Learning Outcomes:
  • - Learn what it means to have an antifragile relationship and it's impact on team and organizational success.
  • - Learn and practice a number of tools to continue moving your relationships to a more antifragile position to improve your results and success.
  • - Go beyond simplistic behavior based team charters and learn to create your own Team Alliance (scrum teams, leadership teams, product teams, etc.) that focuses on what each individual will bring to the team.
  • - Build on your Alliance and learn how to create a Conflict Protocol provides a framework for dealing with conflict before it arises.
  • - Understand team toxins, the value of them, and how antidotes create ways to benefit from conflict.
