Description: Let’s face it: Teamwork can be hard. But it doesn’t have to be! In this session, David and Mary Sherwin will walk us through a series of hands-on, practical exercises that help teams get aligned on how they want to work together from the start of projects. They’ll cover how to set shared communication norms, get real about working hours, and unpack assumptions about how they can best support each other when things get tough. If you’ve ever asked yourself “How do we actually talk about how we want to work together?”, this is the session for you. It’ll help you enable your teams to set their own rules in a way that’s clear, direct, and useful.
