Dr. Joanne Chu
The Collaborative Operating System™ (COS) is a dynamic and scalable approach to how work gets done in groups. This system uses the explicit principles of ownership and alignment as “currency” for how to more fully engage teams and build a culture of high-trust and transparency. Much of a team’s work occurs in meetings and yet they often are a source of frustration and under-productive time for participants. This workshop will illustrate how the COS principles are operationalized through the use of the COS Meeting Design™. After exploring the fundamentals of the system, workshop participants will use the meeting design template to design an upcoming meeting and exchange peer feedback.
- Learn about the COS Methodology – What is it, how is it used, what problems it solves.
- Practice designing more effective meetings – Through the template that is provided and group-work with your peers, you will have the opportunity to put the theory into practice by using the process to design an upcoming meeting.
