When teamwork turns toxic

It’s the awkward silences, the sighs, the rolling eyes, the raised voices, and the no-compromise clashing of ideas that makes if feel like a dead end with everyone on board. We’ve all been there. It’s no picnic. As that culture sets in, people either clam up, afraid to disagree, or start butting heads over every little thing. Shared momentum is lost, trust breaks down, and innovation dries up with needed ideas lost in the storm. But what if navigating that storm together could do the opposite? More momentum, more trust, and more innovation with a shared excitement that brings teams closer by being curious about different perspectives. Let’s shed the weight and dive in.

Dare to disagree

We’re erasing the battle lines, ditching the armour, and reclaiming conflict to be the healthy device for team progress that it should be. Putting together the data, facts, and tested actions you can take to create healthier conflict for teams, we’ll unpack how teams value each other’s strengths with the psychological safety needed to disagree with more ease. We’re opening up three crucial topics for curious, constructive, and more comfortable disagreement. What is healthy vs unhealthy and how do we spot it? How can everyone adapt their personal style based on those around them to make conflict smoother? And practically speaking, what can teams do to turn things around when teamwork turns toxic?

Turning the tide

None of us can get it right all the time, but having a simple and practical plan is where the magic begins. Across the session, we’ll be figuring out how diverse personal conflict styles can contribute to stronger decisions, better solutions, and higher team performance. Join us for an hour-long chat about the best way to talk out tough stuff with some fresh perspective awareness, loads of tips, and some practical hacks for helping teams work better together through conflict. Plus, you’ll have the chance to raise your questions with our expert speakers throughout the call and be the first to grab our new top-tips guide jam packed with useful data and practical actions you can take too!
