Teamwork is vital in the contemporary workplace. Even with the help of modern technology, soft skills of human communication are essential glue that gets the job done – especially when settings are rich with diversity and require high levels of interaction.
The “Group Styles” framework provides a simple, powerful lens for reading group dynamics and individual behavior. Most importantly, it offers practical ways to understand and adapt ones own behavior in order to help groups succeed. In the training, everyone will identify their own dominant Style through a group process. We will explore ways we have learned these behavioral habits. Then, building on understanding of everyone’s strengths, we will then all see how we can adapt our behavior in order to improve teamwork overall.
