What do I do if my manager is the problem on my team?

Association of Experiential Education -- 37th International Conference in Montreal

Imagine a team skills workshop that involves sitting and listening to an "expert" talk about how to be a good team.  You might even hear this in the workshop "Please open your books and read the section on shared leadership between pages 129 and 157."

Now imagine a team skills workshop that involves engaging, hands-on learning exercises that create openings for dynamic and productive conversations that build on the collective wisdom of the participants - - all guided by a skilled facilitator who helps the group learn how to apply what they've experienced.

Which one of these workshops would you prefer to attend?

I'm going to guess your answer is workshop # 2 where you'll learn through EXPERIENCE.

All of the great teamwork facilitators understand the value of experiential education.

AEE_logo If you're new to experiential education then you need to know about the Association of Experiential Education (AEE).  This organization supports the work of experiential learning practitioners worldwide.  You'll find many AEE members who are teamwork facilitators.  I have presented at many AEE conferences on topics involving team and leadership development - - usually sharing strategies, tactics and tools for teaching team skills experientially. 

AEE is holding their international conference in the beautiful city of Montreal between October 29 and November 1, 2009.  CLICK HERE to learn more about the conference.

IATF members Michael Cardus of Create-Learning.com and Brian Capron of UNC Charlotte Venture Program will be leading workshops at the event.  Read the list of great workshops and workshop presenters HERE.
