Among his numerous humanitarian endeavours is the goal of establishing five million coaches and mentors for children in elementary school.
Outside of work, David’s hobbies include the use of humour for social and emotional well-being, authoring children’s books, ice skating, and travelling to distant regions of the world. Each year, he sets a new learning objective for himself.
1. Help teams work through complex systems and adapt.
2. Improving team dynamics by opening up meaningful dialogue
3. How the team’s emotions, cultural, thinking patterns and narratives come together to create or hinder high performance?
4. More about team coaching.
Teams are complex, adaptive systems made up of people (who are also complex adaptive systems) nested in other complex, adaptive systems, Most of what happens in teams is instinctive — members are not aware of the systems in play and how these affect whether and how they collaborate. The more clearly a team understands its own dynamics, the better decisions it makes and the more able it is to respond to change in its environment. In this thought-provoking webinar we explore how the team’s emotions, cultural, thinking patterns and narratives come together to create or hinder high performance — and the role that team coaching plays in helping the team see itself more clearly.
Teams are the cellular structures that make the corporate body work. Without teams, it would be next to impossible to organise large, complex tasks.
