What’s Really Going On with Your Team? An Observational Skills Workshop

Julie Wyman

When it comes to our day-to-day work interactions, there are many factors that pass us by simply because we’re not used to paying attention to them. The best way to become more observant is through deliberate practice, so join Julie Wyman for a brief introduction to themes and different aspects of interactions to start observing, followed by small group exercises to practice observing and to help understand what it feels like to be observed. The exercises will be followed by a debrief and full group discussion about how to observe thoughtfully and share feedback in a neutral, nonjudgmental way. You will leave with an understanding of the critical importance of being able to observe interactions at the individual, team, and organizational levels, and with ideas for how to observe using multiple senses. You'll go home with your coaching and support skills more aligned to your team’s full situation and needs.
