About this workshop:

Cooperation and team building are key to successful projects and enterprises. Without cooperation and good team dynamics, disharmony and dysfunction will occur. The results are failed initiatives, wasted time and resources, and most importantly, erosion of goodwill among people with good intentions.

Zhuge Liang was famous for working harmoniously and effectively with colleagues, friends, strangers, and even competitive rivals. His ability to strategically forge cooperation and build teams led to success in the face of overwhelming odds.

What is offered in this workshop:

Whether you are involved in business projects, volunteer-based charitable work, or just running day-to-day activities in an organization, cooperation and team building are the foundation of successful operations. You cannot always work with people you like, or with persons who share your ideals. How do you build a team and make sure that the members will cooperate with each other?

This workshop is designed to train you in the strategies of cooperation and team building among friends, co-workers, strangers, and competitors, so that personal differences, grudges, and rivalry can be set aside for the greater good. Through presentations, tutorials, and work groups simulations, you will learn how to:

  • Balance virtue and pragmatics while making cooperative commitments.
  • Identify the nature of the cooperative activity needed to complete a project.
  • Identify the skills and abilities that are needed to form an effective team.
  • Work strategically with team members and partner organizations who are friendly, supportive, indifferent, or even hostile.
  • Create a work environment that focuses on cooperation rather than competitive rivalry.

What you will get out of this workshop:

  • Guidelines on how to balance virtue and pragmatics in cooperative activities.
  • Guidelines on how to identify and design cooperative agreements.
  • Tips on how to choose team members.
  • Thought banners that will stimulate further investigation of how to cooperate strategically.
  • Participants will receive Part 1 of Eva Wong’s book Mastering the Art of Leadership and Strategy.
  • There will also be additional materials on the effects of situation awareness and social awareness on:
    • Creating and drawing boundaries in cooperative relationships.
    • Implementing transactional agreements in team building.
    • Shifting awareness in the process of ever-changing working conditions.

Create an atmosphere of cooperation, not rivalry.

Successful teams lead to successful projects.
