Leading and teaming in the digital economy requires more than technical know-how and the ability to get along with people. It’s as much about developing our dispositions for learning, building trust, managing mood, coordinating commitments and solving problems together as it is about technical brilliance or individual charisma.
Our 21st Century world of accelerating change and disruption has two features of strategic importance to any successful career. They are ‘hidden in plain sight’ and depend on thriving workplace relationships
To develop relational skills we need a deeper kind of learning: dispositional learning. It requires motivation, a great deal of recurrent practice, feedback and self-reflection.
That’s why V-Teamwork is entirely practice-based. It’s designed to cultivate your skills and dispositions for successful interaction: at first in the weekly team session, then in your workplace, where every conversation becomes your training ground and an opportunity to progress your projects and make your relationships flourish.
The V-Teamwork curriculum is designed to rapidly develop your mastery of leadership and teaming skills, so you can get breakthrough results in your workplace, leadership or enterprise, and continue to build on these into the future. Read the full program details here.
Teamcraft Foundations is a comparatively brief but highly practical introduction to virtual immersive simulations. A prerequisite to the other courses, TeamCraft Foundations builds the dispositions and practices needed to create a cohesive learning culture at work. With 8 contact hours spread over 4 weeks, it’s also the ideal introductory course for those busy professionals who want to test the waters of leadership development.
Core Skills and Core Skills advanced are more intensive programs to develop core competency in teaming and leadership. Building on the mindset and attitudes of TeamCraft foundations, they develop people into powerful leaders and collaborators, and include competencies in shifting the mood and morale of team, and delivering and receiving feedback powerfully, thinking interdependently, and adapting to change.
Teaming Dojo is an ongoing, low-intensity course for graduates of TeamCraft and Core Skills to maintain and strengthen skills in collaboration and critical thinking, in a community of like-minded professionals.
While we recommend following the curriculum as designed, the only prerequisite is TeamCraft Foundations, which, as an introduction to immersive virtual learning and developing team learning practices, needs to be completed before all other courses.
See the program details page for a full set of course information and requirements.
Each course is a potent blend of learning technologies to rapidly develop and expand your dispositions for leadership and teaming. All courses involve a combination of these key components:
See the program details page for a more detailed description of each course.
You will be working closely with your team to coordinate your time and accomplish the course work together (see Who is the Ideal V-Teamwork Participant to get an idea of the types of people you will be working with). Your teammates become a source of mutual support, encouragement, and focused feedback, as well as providing invaluable learning opportunities for discovering how to work with different people.
Most importantly, you will be expected to apply your learning week-to-week at work. This course is not for people just going through the motions; however, if you are committed to seeing your results manifest in your day-to-day business or workplace, you will surprised and delighted at what you can achieve.

V-Teamwork Core Skills is different from any other type of online or face-to-face learning that you are likely to have encountered. It’s not about knowledge acquisition, there are no multiple choice questions, webinars, case studies, capstone projects or research.
Instead, V-Teamwork is action-based group learning. You learn by doing projects with a team and a skilled professional coach in an immersive virtual environment, where you are free to learn from mistakes as well as from success.
Your learning accelerates because, whether you are succeeding or making mistakes, you are constantly learning from your teammates and they are learning from you. This supportive deep learning environment equips you with the skill and confidence to then put your learning into practice in real life: in the 10-20 hours you spend in workplace interactions each week.
In the 21st Century, the future belongs to those who can thrive on change and disruption by expanding their ability to learn and collaborate with others. The ideal V-Teamwork participant is someone wants to level up and work with others to create positive futures. Someone who understands that collaboration, leadership, and teaming skills are fundamental to success.
V-Teamwork is for leaders, entrepreneurs, executives, and managers: people who innovate, make decisions, design, build and get things done. Here’s a snapshot of some of the people who’ve already done the program:
Our graduates have worked for organizations like Autodesk, RioTinto, Effective Altruism, Nike, Leica, NASA, Apple and Facebook, as well as numerous startups and public sector organizations.
From millennials in their early 20’s to boomers in their late 60’s, they joined us from the United States, China, Singapore, Australia, South Africa, India, Canada, New Zealand, Germany, France, Russia, Poland and Ukraine.
No matter the profession, industry or job function, V-Teamwork is for leaders who thrive on change. It’s for people who want to expand their ability to motivate, influence and bring out the best in those around them.
