This training leverages the 5 modes of conflict from the Thomas Kilmann Instrument to help people understand their default conflict styles, identify when other options may be more appropriate and the skills required to effectively utilize these alternative styles. Additionally, a section on change management is included to help participants effectively communicate and lead change initiatives.
Effective teams are highly collaborative and built on trust. To create a high-performing, diverse team, an awareness of the group dynamics and individual innate preferences of the team members is essential. With this understanding, the team can optimize communication structures to create a high performing team. We use a variety of approaches to design team trainings and faciliate off sites that create the conditions for trust and collaboration that are required to build results driven teams.
