Good Mate Workshop
Want to be more influential with your work mates and help make team projects more successful? Come to our Good Mate Workshop on April 5, 2019. It will be held in Burlington, MA (USA), at the Scrum.org classroom and will run from 9AM to 2PM. Evan Sorensen and Jim Johnson will present an overview of over 65 years of research from The Standish Group (on project team performance) as well as the Gottman Institute (on personal relationships). The workshop will highlight our new book The Good Mate: How Understanding Team Relationships Can Make You Happier and More Productive. This workshop is neither a team-building exercise nor a technical workshop. It is focused only on how individual team mates can develop better relationship skills for cohesive, productive, and happier teams.
In this interactive session we will explore:
· 10 Relationship Principles
· 50 Mechanical Relationship Skills & Habits
· Benchmarking Your Relationship Skills
· 3 Skills You Should Improve
· Charts from the CHAOS Database
The session will include presentations and talks from Ken Schwaber, Jim Johnson, and Evan Sorensen. Each participant in the workshop will also receive a free copy of The Good Mate Book*,a Good Mate Benchmark & Assessment, and a Life-long Learner Certificate.
The target audience for this workshop is team mates on Scrum, Agile, or self-directed/managed teams who want or need to improve their relationship skills. We recommend that you send at least two people from your team. And note: We’re not restricting this workshop to team members only. Based on what we learned in our last workshop, you may a find the experience also helps improve non-work related relationship in your life.
The workshop will be followed by a social hour that will allow all the attendees to reflect on what they have learned.
The fee for the workshop is $200. To sign-up go to our store.
