About the Solution

This workshop enables teams to have courageous conversations, which stimulate healthy conflict and robust discussion, ultimately leading to better decisions, and improved team performance.

Ideal for teams who are newly formed, or who recently come out of a restructure process or teams who are about to undertake a new challenging project or goal.

In this 2 hour workshop….

  • The team learns why courageous conversations are the ignition point of healthy conflict and how this leads to higher team respect, trust and ultimately performance
  • The team understands why courageous conversations can be so difficult and learn how to use a bystander intervention strategy to overcome these difficulties
  • The team creates agreements for how to ensure courageous conversations can be nurtured in the team
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not run this workshop if there are particular team members that are in conflict (where trust is absent). Please refer to the Conflict Resolution Playbook

This really is the ultimate team building workshop for unleashing a team’s awareness and capacity for healthy conflict and robust meaningful debate – it is rich in contextual understanding and brings a whole new spin on courageous action through using the bystander intervention process. A workshop that will change the very core of how you view conflict in all aspects of life.
