What is it?

A mindful team is aware of itself as a team. Its members are individually and collectively aware of the team’s purpose, its processes, its inner dynamics, its strengths and its problems – and they are willing and able to discuss all of these constructively and non-judgementally.

How does it work?

The Team Mindfulness process employs a variety of practical processes in interactive sessions designed to help participants discover more about themselves and their teams. They will explore, develop and enhance communication, listening and coaching skills and build insights that they will begin to apply in real-life work contexts right away.

Between sessions participants will inquire within themselves to pull together the story of the team: mapping how the team is and how it works. They will discover and explore their biases and unconscious assumptions, and learn how to gather the meta-data that enables them to take a ‘balcony view’ of the team as a whole
