For many project teams, the sudden shift to learning-from-home has shaken group connection, communication, and collaboration. Processes need to be rethought, accountability is less clear, and meetings just feel different on Zoom. Some groups are facing conflict, disconnection, or confusion, even as they sense a greater need to come together and find solutions to emerging challenges.
In this remote context, how can we find new ways of collaborating, relating, and creating? What abilities do we need to strengthen? What beliefs and habits do we need to let go of?
In this participatory Zoom workshop, join Juniper Belshaw and Jess Malz to explore the factors that influence project team effectiveness, and discover ways to nurture your group, even at a distance.
