Leading a team, especially for the first time, presents us with interesting challenges. Great! That gives us opportunities to grow, help others in meaningful ways, and discover superpowers we didn’t know we had.

Joost, Tom, and Brian take the opportunity of Tom’s new job to discuss how these opportunities take shape, how they challenge us, and which tools can help us succeed. We cover topics like leadership by example, dealing with organizational politics, and managing team (members’) performance. Enjoy! 🙏🏼

Key Topics

Setting expectations, intention, design principles, task relevant maturity, empathy, vulnerability, one on one’s, toxicity, multidirectional management

In some ways, this is an exciting time to be alive. Joost and Brian speak with Reinout Bosman, trainer, speaker, and opera tenor currently living in Florence, Italy. Together, we explore the idea that crisis brings change – we can either shut down or step up and follow new opportunities.

 

We discuss best practices for conducting classes or workshops online, social rituals like ‘Whatsapperitivo’ to stay in touch with friends, and how we can enrich our lives by confronting our confining convictions. Our journey passes along purpose, ventures into vulnerability, and careens around courage, creativity, connection, and love. 🙏🏼❤️

Remote workshops, Intention, design sprints, digital collaboration tools, love vs. fear, empathy, vulnerability, humanity, being present, facilitating
