The Game of Teams Podcast, Episode 52

As part of my recent virtual book tour for ‘The Art & Science of Facilitation’, I made a virtual stop at The Games of Teams podcast studio, which is located in Dublin, Ireland. 

The Game of Teams podcast is a series of “Conversations designed to illuminate the Game of Teams from renowned Practitioners and Leaders worldwide”

Meet Tara Nolan, Podcast Host

Tara Nolan is the host of The Game of Teams Podcast, a podcast that was born out of her fascination with teams, her work with teams as a Team Coach and her interest in exploring the thoughts and thinking of others who have a role in making teams great. 

As part of this podcast series, Tara interviews practitioners and leaders to hear their stories, including failures in a bid to give voice to what is happening on teams. 

Many have written books on the subject. Her role is to help listeners to get massive traction to the things that matter most on teams.

The Art & Science of Facilitation

During episode 52 on The Games of Teams podcast, my conversation with Tara Nolan was centered around my new book

We discussed many points during our conversation, here are just a few of the show notes:

  • Systems Thinking. Dialogue, Structural Dynamics and Agile is the thinking I use to inform my approach to client engagements.
  • Dialogue and Structural Dynamics enable movement towards agility.
  • Many teams that I work with notice the groundhog or mini groundhog day conversations with which they are engaged. Dialogue principles and structural dynamics often provide the gateway to true collaboration.
  • So much of facilitation is an inside game. A good facilitator gets very familiar and comfortable with the 5 beliefs inherent in facilitation.
  • I make the claim that 21st century leaders need to become artful facilitators and coaches of teams.
