Case Studies

Rebuilding Trust in a Geographically Dispersed Team

The Situation:

Trust and relationships had broken down in a team whose members were in three different locations. A series of events had resulted in staff refusing to speak with one another or cooperate on important organizational projects. The team’s work was critical for the organization’s operations, and the situation was beginning to have a wider effect across the organization and its partners.

Presentations

Unleashing Results for Groups Tackling Wicked Problems
We introduced our experience working with groups that don’t always (or often!) agree with one another, but have to find a way to get together in order to address the complex, messy (“wicked”) problems that are facing them. We shared lessons from our work with one group of organizations, which has resulted in international recognition for what they achieved together. We also described the practical tools that everyone can use to help their groups develop shared understanding and commitment on the way to achieving breakthrough results.
