Good Mate Workshop

The Good Mate Workshops provide a platform for individual team mates to improve their relationship skills. In these workshops, Evan Sorensen and Jim Johnson present an overview of over 65 years of research from The Standish Group (on project team performance) as well as the Gottman Institute (on personal relationships). The workshop will highlight our new book The Good Mate: How Understanding Team Relationships Can Make You Happier and More Productive. This workshop is neither a team-building exercise nor a technical workshop. It is focused only on how individual team mates can develop better relationship skills for cohesive, productive, and happier teams.
