Learn the key to effective collaboration in just 2 days.

Agile Prague 2017

Over 2 years of research, 180 teams and some 1500 people, Google researchers studied the question “What makes a team effective?”

They discovered the 5 key indicators of effective teams at Google: impact, meaning, structure and clarity, dependability and psychological safety. But, what’s more, they found that psychological safety underpinned the other 4; teams without psychological safety were significantly impaired.

Our 2 day workshop explores each of the five key indicators with a focus on how you can apply Google’s (and other research) to your organisation.

After 2 days, you and your team will have a deep understanding of their own levels of psychological safety. And, most importantly, how it affects their ability collaborate effectively.

Focussed on increasing the student's awareness of safety (or the lack of it) and working with learners to help them create right environment in their work to deliver reliably.

Combining the latest available research with an engaging and energetic style, after 2 days you will leave with the knowledge you need to be at the top of your game!
