We are living in uncertain times. Old hierarchies and ways of working no longer serve employees and the organization to adapt to and handle challenges, or to proactively drive innovation.
New concepts like agility or SCRUM have emerged to deal with these challenges. A latest McKinsey study shows that agile teams & organizations excel in both stability and dynamism, showing a significantly increased level of performance for financial and non-financial indicators.
But these findings also raise further questions: How can we transition to agile and self-managed ways of working? And how can we assure that new team structures and fast-paced processes don’t lead to burnout, but care for the health of each individual?
How to get more done and have more fun
In this one-day, experiential workshop we will explore the importance of deep & intuitive listening as foundation for team building, and engage with different communication and team building techniques to form strong, resilient, healthy and agile environments.
Raquel Ark, communication expert and founder of ListeningALCHEMY, and Alexander Fröde, coach for team building, agility and storytelling, will bring together the two worlds of efficiency and care. Participants will learn how to create an innovative and agile working culture that puts people first, and how to nurture and sustain this environment over time.
For whom is the workshop?
The workshop is an introduction for coaches, leaders and changemakers. It will be relevant for everybody who is responsible for creating or maintaining a supportive and innovative working environment, as a team leader, CEO or external facilitator. We also offer targeted follow-up workshops and support to implement the learnings within your organization. In this case please reach out to the organizers for further information.
