Want an awesome team that builds great products? Great teams don’t happen by accident. And they don’t have to take a long time to build.

In this session, Richard lays out the case for Continuous Teaming. Session participants will join in a flight of fun learning activity-sets. These will give you a taste of team awesomeness and how to start when you go back to work.

Richard builds on the work of Jim and Michele McCarthy, Google, Bruce Tuckman, Gamasutra, Standish Group, Peter Drucker, and Melvin Conway. His learning activity-sets activities are short games, using elements from improvisational theater, The Core Protocols, Extreme Programming, and more.

Who should attend? Anyone who wants to create a great team and build great products. You’ll leave having embodied the essential elements of accelerated continuous team-building and awesomeness maintenance.

Your team can be ten times better

What does that mean? That means your professional team can accomplish 10x more work, do it with 10x more quality, 10x faster, or with 10x less resources. Your family can be 10x happier. Your school can be 10x more effective at helping people learn. Your community group can be 10x better at making life better for the people it serves. Even you yourself can be 10x more effective at getting what you want.

In other words, you can be great. Your team can be great.

Greatness

Can you say these things about your teams?
  • My projects are completed effortlessly on schedule and in budget every time.
  • Every team I’ve ever been on has shared a vision.
  • In meetings, we only ever do what will get results.
  • No one blames “management," or anyone else, if they don’t get what they want.
  • Everybody shares their best ideas right away.
  • Ideas are immediately unanimously approved, improved, or rejected by the team.
  • Action on approved ideas begins immediately.
  • Conflict is always resolved swiftly and productively.
The Core Protocols are one way to make teams that have these characteristics.

Some of the things you’ll learn:
  • Results-oriented behaviors,
  • How to enter a state of shared vision with a team and stay there
  • How to create trust on a team
  • How to stay rational and healthy
  • How to make team decisions effectively, and
  • How to move quickly and with high quality towards the team’s goals
