Current behavioral science and organizational research shows that when it comes to teams doing their best work what really matters is less about who is on the team and more about how the team works together.

At this 3.5-hour live online program, you'll learn practical interpersonal skills grounded in attention training, growth-oriented mindsets and collaborative behaviors that you can use to promote psychological safety, connection and effectiveness within your team.

Program Structure

This program focuses on three essential aspects of team dynamics that help create an environment of psychological safety for your team based on trust, inclusion, collaboration and performance.
  • The "I" in Team: leveraging mindfulness skills and building self-awareness of how our thoughts, feelings and behaviors impact others.
  • The "We" in Team: building awareness of others to enhance psychological safety, trust and empathy.
  • Communication Skills: working more effectively with others using clear communication and feedback.

By Participating You Will:

  • Deepen you self-awareness and learn how your thoughts and behaviors impact team dynamics.
  • Expand your awareness and understanding of others to develop empathy and manage conflict.
  • Build effective and non-reactive communication skills and learn to collaborate more effectively.
  • Discover how to promote interactions that create a vibrant high-performing team that is engaged, agile and effective.
  • Learn practical actions you can take to build a culture that fosters trust and inclusion and leverages diversity.

Vanda Sousa

I started my career as a pharmacist, with the goal of improving people's quality of life and I soon realized that this requires much more than medicines. During more than 18 years I worked for multinational pharmaceutical companies, going through different roles in sales, marketing and new business models. Being aware that personal and professional well-being is essential and based on the benefits I was feeling from my personal yoga and meditation practice, I started an ongoing process of study, research and practice in this area. In 2018 I became a SIY Certified Teacher and I am also a Conscious Parenting and Conscious Aging Facilitator. Currently, I am Co-Founder and Lead Mindfulness Instructor at The School of We, a community for learning and building new ways of relating in business, society and with ourselves. Since 2018 I am also responsible for the Mindfulness at Workplace programs at Ser Integral - Centro Português de Mindfulness.

While we do our best to let you know who your teachers will be ahead of time, teachers are subject to change.
