Changing Behavior in High Stakes

Lead sustainable change, even when the stakes are high
Read the room and a system behaviorally, name the hidden dynamics and work with human behavior in crisis

We will explore how the structure of our language informs our behavior and shapes our reality. By deconstructing the structures that sit behind our reactions, it becomes possible to understand and change the disruptive patterns of behavior that can erupt without warning.

Using Structural Dynamics, we explore the range of powerful, but invisible forces which drive our face-to-face interactions when the stakes are high. This means being equipped to map patterns of behavior and understand how they show up at particular interfaces.

By participating in this workshop, you will…

  • Map behaviors
    across teams, organizations and wider systems
  • Work with the most challenging behaviors
    in high stakes environments
  • Work with visible and invisible behavioral dynamics to ensure durable change
  • Read reactive
    behavior
    in self and others and develop the ability to lower the stakes for self and others
  • Gauge an organization’s moral compass and design and lead dialogic team and organizational interventions
  • Great experience!
    This workshop gave me a language for being able to see and describe challenging conversations and team dynamics that I’ve experienced in the past and how I can change them moving forward. Great experience!

    Exceptional Leaders and Enterprise Behavioral Agile Coaches are skilled in self-mastery and making system-wide interventions often in the most challenging and high stakes environments.

    Agile Team Facilitation

    Facilitation is a cornerstone skill for successfully leading agile teams
    Design and lead engaging, purposeful and fun meetings

    …and achieve results every time.

    Agile is more than a set of principles and practices. It’s a culture — a culture of communication and collaboration.

    In this fast-paced, multi-day workshop full of hands-on opportunities for practicing new skills, you will explore the five cornerstones of successful facilitation so you confidently know what’s needed from you in any situation.

    By participating in this workshop, you will…

  • Transform the way you approach and design meetings
  • Engage collaborative processes that allow all voices to be heard
  • Learn how to consistently apply the facilitation mindset
  • Feel empowered to facilitate with real-time feedback
  • Lead collaborative meetings with confidence and ease
  • Stop spinning your wheels and wasting time. For Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches ready to break the patterns of dysfunctional meetings, you can’t just do agile. You need to help your teams be agile.
    When a team realizes true agility, they nurture creativity, motivate high performance, and ultimately develop better products faster.
    Valuable in both professional and personal ways.
    Literally every skill, model, theory and lesson is applicable to my day to day relationships and interactions.

    Resistance is a natural part of change. In this workshop, you are almost guaranteed to hit a wall on Day 1 as you start to let go of bad habits you weren’t even aware of.

    If you are not willing to grow and be challenged, this workshop is not for you!

    I am a better person after taking this course.
    I walk away from the course with a different perspective on how to interact with others. I have started to change my behavior in how I interact with my family and I am genuinely excited to try the new tools and techniques with my work teams.
