There is ME in Team

Jan 23, 2019

On April 5, 2019, The Standish Group will hold a Good Mate Workshop in Burlington, MA (USA), at the Scrum.org classroom and will run from 9AM to 2PM. 

Evan Sorensen and JimJohnson 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. 

For more information, contact Jennifer Lynch (jennifer@standishgroup.com), go to our event page or sign-up in our store

The Good Mate Workshop is sponsored by Scrum.org
