Team Development
Essential Competence No. 3: Believe in Others

For teams and departments that work with each other during extended periods of time, it is important to improve the collaboration in the long term. This is possible when one openly talks about what has worked well, and about what has not worked so well thus far. We create a safe environment where it is possible to openly address conflict and problems. At the end of the workshop, specific arrangements for further collaboration are made.
