Where: Scrum.org Global HQ 131 Middlesex Turnpike Burlington MA
Do you ever feel like youre having the same conversation over and over again with no real progress? Do you ever feel like you are stuck in a disagreement and not sure how to move forward?
If any of these issues are standing in the way of your teams how you are having (or not having) the conversation is likely contributing to your challenges. Research consistently demonstrates that team effectiveness is highly dependent upon the quality of the communication between team members. Yet its easy to get into the flow of daily work and be really focused on the what in our conversations without much attention to the quality of how were communicating.
As a team leader one of the most important ways you can serve your team is to help them unlock the wisdom that exists within and have the conversations they need to have. Well explore a framework for learning to read the room using four elements for all face-to-face communication. Well do some live practice to apply the framework to a conversation and then identify some typical patterns of stuck communications that can lead to breakdowns in teams.

Learn the benefits of each element and the traps of stuck patterns
Learn techniques that can be used to create more effective conversations
