Group Dynamics

Reflect on how your team comes together using Opinion DNA. This model of cognitive self-discovery can enable your team to improve communication, conflict management, flexibility, adaptability, and their innovation instinct.

Parlia & Moxie are teaming up to offer a course that helps organizations understand their team's communication, conflict management, flexibility & adaptability, and their innovation tendencies.

Who is it for?

If any of these sound like you, then this course is for you:

  • Product, Operational, or Leadership teams
  • From newly formed to norming teams
  • Managers working on team cohesion
  • Teams looking to address internal conflicts, communication issues, or tension
  • Teams looking to radically improve trust, performance, & super charge innovation

What do I walk away with?

  • Discover your personal Opinion DNA
  • Understand why we think what we think
  • Explore how diverse mental models impact team performance
  • Map your team’s base cognitive models
  • Discover how to make conflict work
  • Increase psychological safety
  • Improve Trust and Mutual respect
  • Enhance Open Communication
  • Enhance innovation and continuous learning

What is the course format?

In this live course we use multiple exercises and methods so that you can experience the concepts rather than be lectured. At times that means we’ll work in pairs or small groups, on our own or a combination depending on the moment. We'll use Parlia so you can assess your Opinion DNA. After the course you'll be able to continue to explore your Opinion DNA in relation to others.


We want to make our services accessible to non-profit organizations - see the pricing variations below depending on your budget. If something doesn’t fit within your budget, reach out below as we offer scholarships.
