In today’s fast-paced environment, organizations must quickly find optimal solutions to the challenges they face. As leaders, it's up to us to create an environment where our teams can discuss conflicting ideas, values, and outcomes to uncover the best possible solutions. This can be daunting—if discussions take a confrontational turn, productivity and morale can deteriorate and lead to poor team performance. It may be counter-intuitive to think that to achieve a high-performance organizational culture we need to increase organizational conflict. How can we be sure our discussions will improve team dynamics? Christopher Arnold explores ways of encouraging positive, healthy, and productive conflict—allowing organizations to achieve their fullest potential.
Join us at the Larimer County Workforce Center leadership series. Christopher Arnold will be leading an educational workshop: Why your success depends on creating MORE conflict.
Join Chris at ATD Northern Rockies Chapter for lunch at CB & Potts in Fort Collins as he shares his journey to build a successful consulting business.
Christopher will present Why Your Success Depends on Creating MORE Conflict as part of Larimer County Workforce Center's Spring Workshops. Participants will learn how individuals and teams typically deal with conflict, what to look for that indicates a team may be stuck in false harmony, and proven strategies for healthy, productive conflict.
Diana presents Meetings That Work as part of Larimer County Workforce Center's Spring Workshops. Participants will learn what types of work are best suited for meetings and what types are not, as well as different meeting structures to help they achieve the outcomes they want.

Join like-minded, values-driven organizations as we follow on the heels of the Small Giants Summit held in Denver. The Summit was amazing and we had a chance to share experiences with a number of other Small Giants as we hosted them for a Day of Mojo - a day dedicated to hearing the stories of other values-driven businesses in our local community of Fort Collins. We hope to build on this momentum as we discussed the need for a leader's passion and explore sound business models that work for Small Giant organizations.
This is a free event and Eventbrite registration is required.

Nathalie Rachline, an expert in organizational and change management and a friend of Trebuchet Group, will lead a discussion on how to keep your team motivated when a major project has to stop. Senior management sometimes must make unpopular decisions to keep an organization moving forward. In this situation, are emotional reactions, turnover, and a culture of uncertainty inevitable?
Quid Novi Innovations Conference: Finding and Sustaining the Courage Needed for Your Innovation's Success
Chris presents the keynote speech, "Finding and Sustaining the Courage Needed for Your Innovation's Success" at the Quid Novi Innovations' Annual Conference on October 17.
Chris is presenting at the 2015 BixPo event at The Ranch, in Loveland, CO, on September 17, 2015. Generating another team from scratch – just like the one in Fort Collins – on the other side of the country, is not easy. Come learn about the process New Belgium and Trebuchet Group used to ensure both teams successfully navigated the choppy seas of change – and arrived stronger than ever.
In this presentation, you’ll learn some models to expand your thinking about the 4-way test. You’ll gain insights into new ways to apply these foundational principles in business and personal relationships, as well as how to leverage your leadership in serving others.
These events are not your typical networking gatherings. While you'll have time to mix and mingle with fellow professionals, questions around a particular theme to guide conversations and increase the possibility of learning best practices from your new colleagues will be offered.
Chris will be speaking on strategic planning and team building for non-profit groups and the 4-Way Test.
