Why We Win, When We Win, What We Win
Presenter: Vitaliy Fursov

How often do we look back at a problem, and wish we had picked a different solution for it? Why are some people and some teams best described as “lucky them”? What helps to build winning strategies and to choose winning solutions for any situation in life? These interesting and useful questions are the foundation of this interactive workshop "Why We Win, When We Win, What We Win." Through very effective facilitation by Vitaliy Fursov, participants in this workshop will discover the impact of personal intent and team power through a series of highly entertaining games. The goal of this workshop is to help project managers to discover the tools necessary for developing healthy working relationships within project teams, based on 'win-win' thinking.
