Develop a Positive Culture where People and Performance Thrive

You’ll learn and practice easy-to-do Interaction Interventions that invite your team and your co-workers to:

  • Notice and amplify what is already working well
  • Improve performance toward “positive deviance”
  • Engage with the others and their job and “lean in” instead of lean back
  • Contribute more and better ideas and energy to the team
  • Collaborate more and support others
  • Take ownership of their actions and outcomes
  • Align their values and purpose to the organization
  • Benefit from the art of dialogue
  • Be agile and ready to change if needed
  • See positive potential and seize opportunities
  • Learn from mistakes, experiment, fail fast and innovate
  • Ask critical questions to improve plans
  • Ask more, and assume and tell less
  • Be authentic, open, and trust the team

Next, you could transform your whole organization using Change Circles.

Nothing will be the same and your dashboards with metrics might dazzle you. It’s as Margaret Mead once said: “Never doubt that a small team of committed people can’t change the world.” You can do that in your organization!

  • Innovation, learning and creativity might increase
  • Collaboration and support may improve
  • Engagement and ownership might surprise you
  • People tend to have more fun, be faster and develop their potential
