Friction-Free Team Collaboration: Meetings and Beyond

Meetings. Email. Group chat. Direct messages. Notifications. Voicenotes…. &%#@!!

Meetings and other comms are essential to work in teams, but woah there - it’s got out of hand! Teams are burning out with the sheer volume of communication. And people are STILL not feeling clear and aligned.

You need to create your own collaboration system: how you make keep each other updated, spot problems, make decisions, hit milestones and learn together.

In this one-day workshop, you'll learn a simple system for streamlining your meetings and collaborating efficiently.

Course Overview

What you will learn

What you can expect to learn through this simple, human-centred way of collaborating:

  • You'll release 4-8 hours of previous wasted meeting time per team member.
  • You’ll learn new collaboration techniques, for meetings and other channels, that you can use to transform how you work together immediately
  • People will become empowered, taking responsibility for solving problems
  • Productivity will flow and you'll start hitting targets and milestones with ease
  • The team will become more positive, supportive and committed — and less frustrated and overwhelmed
  • You'll become expert at resolving to blockers to issues that lie outside the team

This workshop is for you if:

  • You lead a project or team and there are lots of internal meetings
  • You can influence how this team or project works together

This workshop is about transforming how your project or team works together — whatever the rest of the organisation is doing.

You’ll be harnessing insights from:

  • Agile and Lean
  • Open space technology and Unconferences
  • Lean start-up
  • Clean communication, radical candour and servant leadership
  • Managing Your Chimp with Steve Peters
  • The academic research and evidence on meetings and collaboration

We are able to offer both online or classroom sessions for private bookings. Please get in touch for availability.

Our approach to online delivery

The learning will be through a combination of interactive workshops delivered live through Zoom and self-guided assignments over the day.

You should reserve out 10am to 4:30pm in your diary for the learning. This will allow you to join the interactive workshops and have time to reflect and do the assignments in between. We believe immersing yourself in the content for a whole day will create deep learning and lasting impact.

Next steps

If you need help beyond this programme fulfilling your personal action plan, then we also offer 1-to-1 Executive Coaching which can provide you with an insightful and structured space to discover and develop yourself further in order to achieve even more positive results.

For Face-to-Face Live Online Learning

All learners will need to install Zoom on their machines. Full technical requirements are on the Zoom website. Your link will be included in your joining instructions once you have booked your place — if you haven't received this email then please contact our team.

You should reserve out 10am to 4.30pm in your diary for the learning. This will allow you to join the interactive workshops and have time to reflect and do the assignments in between. We believe immersing yourself in the content for a whole day will create deep learning and lasting impact. 

Learners should log into the training session 10 minutes before the start time to ensure that they have downloaded and set up Zoom correctly. The course will start precisely on time and it may not be possible to go back over material missed by late arrivals.

Your active participation is expected: everyone will be heard and seen throughout, just as they would be if we were in a room together. To be heard, hear and seen you will need a microphone, speakers and camera — if you have a modern laptop that’s all you will need. Remember, you’ll need a quiet place to call from and a decent internet connection is a must.
