I love being down in the trenches with the team. I am constantly in a personal struggle to reduce my negative judgements. I find that when I work with a team is that if we appreciate each other and focus on what-is-working that the team does better than when we focus on fixing problems. So for the last few years, it has been my mission to break down the barriers of giving and receiving acknowledgement.
The key is consistency and starting off simple then progressing. For about 6 months I focused on new ways to acknowledge my teammates. We will practice how to make the instructions super simple and how create more complex games. This will be an experiential class where you both learn the new techniques and experience what the team will experience while going thru the process of building trust.
