What you'll learn

  • Learn strategies for building an open, outward-facing team


It takes time and trust for a team to learn to work together well, and if you’ve achieved that, it’s not surprising that you want to keep it that way. But unexpected events can disrupt your team’s equilibrium: people leave to take up other opportunities, wider priorities and strategies shift, and organizations restructure themselves. Change is guaranteed, so how do you handle its impact on your team?

You can equip your team with an understanding of their context and empower them to work productively in times of uncertainty. Jenny Duckett shares practical steps you can take as a leader to build an open, outward-facing team whose members take ownership of their work, help each other learn, and embrace new challenges.
