Creating Results Based Teams – Anywhere, Anytime and with Anyone (Workshop)


Unfortunately due to lack of enrolment the Nov 30-Dec 1 workshop has been cancelled. We are hope to reschedule again in the near future.

Most professionals don’t realize there is a legitimate science and repeatable technique for building and leading teams. There is. Christopher Avery has been defining, applying, and teaching it for over 20 years as documented in Teamwork Is An Individual Skill: Getting Your Work Done When Sharing Responsibility

This workshop intensive is designed for you to…

  1. Know exactly how teams come together and how they don’t,
  2. Add the shared responsibility, shared leadership perspective to your skillset (if it is not already there),
  3. Learn a 5-step team orientation process proven to give a group the best chance of becoming a team,
  4. Apply 1, 2, and 3 during the workshop to experience being on a great team of your own, and
  5. Leave with the confidence you can apply this material the next day.

So many want to know: “How can I master cross-functional and collaborative leadership?”

Attention VPs, Directors, Team Leads, ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches, Project Managers, and professionals who work in teams to get things done. Now you can…

Confidently get more done with less stress and more fun

By applying proven, reliable, and repeatable step-by-step team leadership framework and practices that build cohesive, high-performance team dynamics and get things done under conditions of shared responsibility.

Double your team leadership ability fast, then double it again…

There is a legitimate science and repeatable technology to building and leading teams, and Christopher has been defining, applying, and teaching it for nearly 20 years.

Other Learning Goals

  • Discover why team member motivation is more critical to team success than technical skill and expertise so you can master peer motivation
  • Create contexts that drive healthy team dynamics of trust, respect for individuals, along with  goodwill and cooperation
  • Employ steps for cleaning up broken agreements and relationship mistakes so you can get back on track quickly without losing trust
  • Internalize formulas for breaking through conflict so you can remain calm and focused when facing the heat, turning conflict into breakthrough over and over again for higher levels of team performance

Bonus: If you send a working team you will have immediate value for your investment  as you will get back a much higher performing team. And, they will likely get more done in the workshop than in two days at work.

You will…

  • Understand why a team does or doesn’t generate a felt sense of shared responsibility
  • Have diagnostic and interpersonal tools you can use to build collaboration
  • Know there is always an effective action you can take to build any team, at any time
  • In Creating Results Based Teams — Anytime, Anywhere, with Anyone we show you exactly how to create great teams. Check out video testimonials from agile experts Ronica Roth, Jean Tabaka, and Ryan Martens.
