Do your meetings regularly end with no decisions made, and leave everyone wondering what happens next? Do your team and stakeholders struggle to communicate well with each other? An indecisive team can be frustrating, but over time can lead to more complexity, lost productivity, and lost revenue.

Join master facilitator and team trainer Ben Crothers for a workshop that will show you a collective decision-making framework that is designed specifically for Agile teams. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to apply this framework to challenges that you’re facing, and how to use it to tackle tricky situations in Agile rituals and meetings (HiPPOs, analysis paralysis, biases, oh my!). You’ll also come away with sets of smart facilitation questions to help you in those ‘rabbit-in-the-headlights’ moments, and help you get your teams un-stuck.

Workshop outline:

  • Introductions and warm-up – all-in then small group intros
  • What gets in the way of smooth decision-making – small groups, a bit of root cause analysis and playback
  • Mapping the decision space – Success before, during and after; locating the problems that we’ve discussed
  • Setting up for success – scenario-based demo, then small group activity
  • Intro to the CAPPED decision framework – scaffolding group decisions, and avoiding the ‘decision cliff’
  • Using the CAPPED decision framework – scenario based demos, then small groups to apply it in different ways
  • Next steps – Everyone jots down one new thing they’re going to try in their team

Read more

Often we rely on our automatic responses to people and situations, but these have been shown to be unreliable. This workshop explores new models of human connection and leadership, based on Ali Walker’s original research.

Leadership is no longer about the leader who can impress. It is about the leader who can connect. The workshop will build your leadership capacity through experiential group work and discussions.

Workshop participants will learn:

  • To identify their connection style and the styles of others.
  • The five stages of group dynamics, from disconnection to flow/high-performance.

This workshop is suitable for:

  • Current and aspiring leaders wanting to gain strategies to build high-performance teams using empathy and connection.
  • Team members wanting to learn how to be the best team player possible.
  • Anyone interested in examining and improving their interpersonal skills and promoting positive connections.
