“We’re way off schedule. Everyone is disengaged. No one is on board with the vision.” Sound familiar? What if you could create great products and services without all that drama? What if there was a secret to stellar team dynamics?

From “Ship It Days” to immersive onboarding programs, learn about curious, compelling ways that people from every role within organizations are creating inspired cultures. Drawing from her experience as a team member, team leader, and team facilitator, Teresa Brazen discusses what constitutes a “healthy” culture, how culture impacts design teams and what they create together, and tools and techniques for fostering environments we all want to work in. Along the way, you’ll discover how uniquely well-suited designers are to creating culture change if they adapt the methodologies already in their arsenal.

If you lead a team, want to lead, work remotely, build stuff, wrangle people daily, or just want to learn about invaluable techniques for cultivating inspired team culture this talk is for YOU.
