A do-it-yourself workshop to create awareness of toxic conflict behavior as a necessary first step to eliminate and replace it with healthy, productive communication patterns.
How does this help your team?
This workshop aims to help teams and organizations identify and address the toxic behaviors and communication patterns that can damage relationships and hinder productivity.
During the workshop, participants learn about the various types of toxic behavior that can arise in a team setting, such as defensiveness, blaming, contempt, and stonewalling. They also learn strategies for recognizing and addressing these behaviors and techniques for improving communication and building more robust, productive relationships.
The workshop is designed to help teams and organizations foster a culture of respect, openness, and collaboration and minimize toxic behavior's harmful effects on team dynamics and overall performance. By addressing these issues proactively, teams can improve their ability to work together effectively, communicate clearly, and achieve their goals.
The concept of "team toxins" is based on the work of Dr. John Gottman, a psychologist, and researcher who has spent decades studying relationships and communication patterns.
This workshop's inspiration comes from Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC). Barry Overeem helped me to make it even more engaging and impactful using Liberating Structures.
