2017 Alliance Skills and Leadership Conference Plenary

Dipping below the Waterline: Diagnosing Team Dynamics

Leaders today navigate through a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous work environment. It has never been more critical for today’s leaders to think systemically. Even the most dynamic and high-performing teams run into periods of lower function or dysfunction, and diagnosing the problems requires systems thinking. You’ll leave this interactive session with a concrete tool to help you see what’s happening on your team in a new light.
