A Community of Practice (CoP) is a group of people who share a common passion, set of problems, or interest in a topic and who come together to fulfil both individual and group goals. 

CoPs bring colleagues together in order to:

  • Create support networks
  • Learn and grow their skills
  • Share knowledge and join up related work
  • Share common approaches
  • Collaborate and innovate, and create better practices for everyone.

Come along to this session to find out more about how CoPs are being established and embedded at Cambridge, and the ways in which they could help you and those who you manage. There will be the opportunity to share ideas and concerns you have about the CoPs initiative and learn more about this exciting new area of development in the University.

It’s not about doing more work and it’s not about being the person who shouts about the loudest. It’s more about the simple and consistent things you do so your work is seen, heard, and recognised.

Throughout our careers we spend much of our time working in teams. Teams that are fluid and cross-functional with frequent change and people often working in different places and spaces. For teams to be high performing they need to develop high trust. A high trust team is one where there is respect, people are comfortable to be themselves and challenge each other, and where the whole adds up to more than the sum of the parts. In this session, we explore the key contributors to creating and sustaining a high trust team.

What you will learn:

  • A framework for assessing team trust today
  • How quality questions can create and increase team trust
  • How to create a prioritised team action plan for creating/building/sustaining a high performance team
