In-House Training Workshops

We can support your team to develop a deeper capacity for collaboration.

We offer a wide range of training workshops, which can be delivered online or in-person.

Effective communication is the foundation of any high-performing team. Building in more feedback loops in your team communication has many benefits: moments of interpersonal tension can be resolved efficiently, colleagues build greater mutual understanding and trust, and colleagues get better guidance in their professional development and career progression.


We will love to help you build a culture of open communication and development based on self-reflection and peer-support. 

Building A Feedback Culture

How to be effective and inclusive in decision-making? Can we be fast, and fair? Our answer: Absolutely! The problem is a common misconception: that team decisions are black or white. Either one leader dictates or the entire team deliberates until there’s unanimous agreement. We are here to challenge that myth.

In this workshop we will share with you how to use 4 different collaborative methods. We’ll distinguish Consensus from Consent, introduce the Advice Process, and discuss how to set up clear Mandates. We will show you to use them effectively, in which situations, and how to adjust them to match your context.

Navigating Group Decisions

Although conflicts are never going to completely disappear, we can get better at addressing them together with just a few basic conflict mediation skills. Developing your capacity to respond to conflict becomes a gift for everyone in the workplace when you can help your collaborators to:​

  • Find reconnection and restoration after breaks in trust

  • Transform conflict into sources of learning and take mutually agreed upon positive actions

  • Develop trust, courage, creativity and depth for more cooperative and productive teamwork

  • Develop skills for healthy communication and collaboration

  • Build healthier work relationships to save time and energy in your workflows and function more effectively as an organisation

Mediation Skills For Teams

Organisational design is complex. There are so many factors to consider: both the “hard” structures like policies & procedures, and all the “soft” stuff: your culture & interpersonal dynamics.

At The Hum we have  a simple lightweight framework that you can use to design the organising structure that’s right for you. The essential concept you need to understand is a rhythms-focussed approach to collaboration. Rhythm is about when, why, who, and how you meet as a team. 

In this training, we’ll support you to establish the 4 essential rhythms of collaboration: Connect, Plan, Work, and Reflect.

Collaboration Rhythms

Explore how Dynamic Roles can help structure an organisation for more adaptability and resilience. Where individuals steward multiple roles that can change easily, rather than having fixed job descriptions. This approach enables individuals to become more accountable and boundaries more explicit. Roles-based working enables a more adult-to-adult culture and is a key pattern found in progressive organisations.

Based on elements of Sociocracy and Holacracy, it’s a simple way to think about what your organisation, teams and individuals need to do their best work.
