Workshop Details

Explore how to build and lead effective teams, even when working physically apart from each other.

In this workshop you will spend the day exploring team development models and what these mean in the workplace, including how to lead teams at all stages and how to use and apply feedback in the workplace.

Taking a hands-on, learning by doing approach, we’ll be building on established Hyper Island models to dig deeper and look at how these tools can really work in your teams and how to lead these processes. You’ll learn useful skills through a series of interactive workshops and talks, designed to prompt open discussion.

For those new to Hyper Island this is a unique introduction to our methodology and a chance to learn tangible tools and methods to take back to your workplace.

This workshop will be lead by Gabriela Triffiletti (Learning Designer & Facilitator, Hyper Island) and her team, supported by Dan Nessler (Head of UX, Hinderling Volkart)

The workshop will be held in English and online only.
