Discover how psychological safety, constructive conflict, and actionable learning create a powerful triple helix to transform teams!

In this ground-breaking resource, three experts in the field of education and teamwork each present one of three strands that, when woven together, support teamwork and forge collaborative interactions into a transformative way of working.

Drawing on research and practical experience the authors identify strategies and tools that show how to:

  • Build psychological safety, where teams work towards resilient interpersonal relationships
  • Use constructive conflict as a powerful catalyst for team learning and transformation
  • Inquire into problems of practice to transform capabilities and produce actionable learning
