Strong high-performing teams are sustained by ongoing, authentic, dynamic conversations within the group. More than 20 years of research and group dynamic practice has revealed four conversations that every team and organization needs to have to ensure high levels of engagement and productivity. Mitchen has developed the right questions to drive these conversations.
Effective teams are eclectic: they use the right process or practice at the right time and place to ensure dialog is effective. Dr. Mitch Owen applies decades of group facilitation experience at all levels to deliver the methods, techniques and processes every leader needs to communicate effectively and ensure authentic consensus.
Mitchen’s Conversations of Effective Teams program blends the art and science of effective facilitated communication to develop a powerful training that gives leaders:
The confidence and ability to facilitate discussions at every level,
The knowledge needed to lead the right conversations, and
The ability to ensure high engagement.
Effective team conversations heighten performance, save time and lead to lasting consensus. They are just one component for The Elusive Leadership™ system.
