Virtual Event

Have you ever been a part of a great team? What about a 'sub-optimal' team? What was the difference between the two?

In the new world of work, teams are being used more than ever. Everyone is expected to collaborate effectively. But while it is easy to create a team and to tell people to work collaboratively, it is quite challenging to make it work. To crack the code on team effectiveness, we need to understand the Science of Teamwork!

Event Description:

In this interactive virtual event, we will learn what really drives Team Effectiveness and get a better grasp of the Science of Teamwork. Feel encouraged to bring questions about the teams you are involved in to anchor your learning to your reality! The goal of this session is to enable you to apply your newly acquired understanding about the Science of Teamwork to your teams and organizations, immediately after the session.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Recognize four common myths about teamwork you will want to avoid
  • Understand the psychological science underlying teamwork and related research findings
  • Know the seven proven drivers of team effectiveness
  • Learn practical ways to apply the science of teamwork at work
  • Learn about a simple, proven way to boost team effectiveness

NoteThis session will not be recorded; however, you will receive a reference guide after the session to review the material and resources covered.
