  • Presenter bio and pass off
  • Possible to start with some kind of exercise where attendees reflect on their team experiences, and share something – e.g. what was the last time you had a good team experience, what made it good, what did you do that you felt good about; OR, what was the last time you had a bad team experience, what made it bad, what did you try that was ineffective, etc. – could depend on what’s planned for laterNot suggesting you use the though bubble – just a placeholder
  • After you’ve presented the definition, have them reflect back on their team experience from the beginning – type in chat - was this what was happening? Can you see how that team experience was good/bad from the point of view of this definition?
  • After talking through some of these – type in chat – can you think of others?
