Team change is real, especially when your company is hiring like crazy and doubling in size. Your teams might grow and split - like mitosis. 20 people might arrive in one day. What feels like “tectonic shifts” happen as you morph structurally in an attempt to refocus work and people. How can we bring a humanistic stance to this dynamic reteaming? How can the people be empowered to own their own team changes? How do you integrate the new people in without losing your sense of “culture?" We will explore questions like these with an interactive format. Along the way, I’ll share case studies from 3 successful startups I’ve been a part for nearly 20 years.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will learn:
  • -Patterns of team change including: grow and split, mitosis, and load balancing across teams.
  • -Techniques for enabling people to choose their own teams.
  • -Activities encouraging teams to experiment and reflect on team changes that they design.
  • -How to provide support and coaching for people going through team change.
  • -Techniques designed to bring openness to large-scale reteaming events.
  • -Practical tips to help teams gel and get up to speed after they change.
