Part 2: Overcoming Founder’s Syndrome in Collaborative Teams
*Part 2 for coaches, business and cooperative developers and consultants, and those wanting a zoom out approach to addressing founder’s syndrome in a team.
April 5th at 1:30pm ET – Register here!
For mission-driven leaders, smooth collaboration between founders or founding members and their teams can be a lingering challenge. Conflicts or resistance can even happen between team members that have been in an organization for a while and the newer members. These conflicts can lead to increased turnover rate, staff silos or cliques, isolated founders (or founding members), and a lack of accountability. Getting past the common challenges that teams so often experience, enables teams to work better together while building stronger and more effective teams, leading to happy, successful, and fulfilled staff and more easily actualized missions.
In this webinar, Cecile Green and Alex Stone (from Cooperation Works) will examine the common issues that teams and founders or founding, long-standing members face from a zoomed out perspective. Then, we’ll dig into how to assess and take action on specific practices for supporting an organization or team with their founder’s syndrome issues.
