Your workshop is the main reason I came to this conference.
I'm focused on teaching teams how and why to embrace healthy conflict.
I offer customized workshops, both in-person or remote, and talks for your teams, too! Just get in touch and we can discuss what you need.
We Need to Talk
For most of us, conflict is often something we try to avoid. Yet, truly embracing “healthy” conflict is your team’s secret to building great products.
In this workshop, you how to leverage healthy conflict with practical, equitable, non-prescriptive methods, and craft the best possible version of your product, your team, and even yourself. Through exercises, worksheets, and facilitated discussion, you'll leave with tools you can put to use in your next hard conversation.
Magical Cross-Functional Collaboration
To build the best products and teams, it’s critical that you collaborate deeply with people both inside and outside your discipline to build a shared sense of ownership. This workshop focuses on building working agreements.
It identifies areas for you and your team to unlock the collaboration required to build top-tier products and break down silos you didn’t even know were there. Whether it’s someone who’s strongly-opinionated or extremely shy, you’ll learn how to engage both—and everyone in between—for a more meaningful collaboration.
If you're looking for a glimpse of what it's like to have me join you for a session, look no further.
