Course Overview

In this 8-week intensive lead by Managing Director Chris Heuer, you will learn the critical components of team flow and how to create optimal conditions for unlocking your team’s potential. You will explore the six interconnected conditions that enable team flow through readings, discussions, and real-world applications, according to research by expert Jef van den Hout.

Based on research by our course co-designer, Dr. Jef van den Hout, the 8-week Team Flow Fundamentals course explores the six interconnected conditions that enable team flow. Connected and driven by a collective ambition, you’ll discover how a shared purpose and aligned values create momentum, created by psychological safety, open communication, integrated skills, audacious goals, and mutual commitment.

Each week builds on the last, arming you with the mindsets, tools, and techniques to unlock your team’s greatest potential. You’ll learn tangible strategies for establishing each condition within your team through readings, discussions, and real-world applications. Weekly live sessions will take place on Wednesday evenings, except during the week of Thanksgiving, beginning on Wednesday October 25, 2023 at 5pm PDT, continuing till Wednesday December 20, 2023.

The course will combine video presentations and class lectures you watch on your own, 2x per week group discussions, and simple projects you will be assigned with real-world implications for yourself and your team. Every participant will perform a quick team flow assessment with one of their teams, which we will review with you and support, as if you were doing a team flow facilitation project. So this isn’t only an investment in learning the materials and the language of team flow, but a chance at bringing this to life in your daily work.
