Making Groupwork Work

This module is a team-based activity, in which you will receive individualized feedback on your interactions with teammates during a real-time group problem-solving session. Our focus will be on what your interactions communicate implicitly about your approach to professional relationships and how your interaction style may affect the joint goals you are attempting to reach. Through detailed analysis of 360° video-recordings of your interactions with teammates, you will receive feedback about your interaction style: what it communicates implicitly about your approach to relationships, how it relates to the interaction styles of others, and how it can influence your relationships and team performance at work. You will leave the session with a framework to help you understand the often invisible complexity involved in team relationships at work, and some tools to help you manage that complexity in order to improve your relationships and team performance at work.
• Duration: 1H

Presentations

You will get individualized feedback on your performance during a class-presentation, including body language, tone, eye contact, verbal habits, and overall rapport and connectedness with the audience. You will receive precise, timely, individualized feedback guided by a framework that challenges you to consider the impact that everything you say and do in public has on the effectiveness and efficacy of your communication, and the persuasiveness of your presentation. You will leave the session in possession of a communication compass - a set of structured questions that will help you model and understand your intent and purpose.
• Material: a video of your team presentation

Advanced Presentations

Designed for students who have successfully completed Presentations, this module gives individualized, intensive feedback on the way in which you present, connect, relate to their audience and content and engage in the complicated landscape of public dialogue. The feedback is based on the video of the presentation made AFTER the Presentations module - and will therefore provide with guidance and feedback on the degree to which the changes made as a result of the first round of feedback are producing the results sought.
