Day 2 @ 15:40
Cultivating a collaborative learning environment in groups - rapidly build high-quality connections to learn faster together
Social learning opportunities occur daily at work. For team members to learn from their peers, there is a need to connect well and be comfortable to seek direction, question current practices and share lessons learned on the job. With little time and resources, how can organisations build the capability in teams to rapidly form strong, supportive connections and psychological safety that are the foundations for collaborative learning? This workshop introduces strategies to support collaboration through the rapid building of positive connections. This session draws on findings from the field of Positive Organisational Scholarship and research into what leads to positive outcomes and extraordinary individual and organisational performance. It introduces evidence-based ways to connect well with others and feel more energised to learn and succeed.
