Webinar Abstract

Learn how to create effective teams that grow your business, solve complex problems and innovate.

“We’ve found patterns of communication [team dynamic] to be the most important predictor of a team’s success. Not only that, but they are as significant as all the other factors—individual intelligence, personality, skill, and the substance of discussions—combined.”A Pentland. The New Science of Building Great Teams, Harvard Business Review.

As the research by Pentland has shown, team results are almost entirely based on how well individuals collaborate and work together.

As the problems we face become more complex we are increasingly reliant on teams to solve them. To solve complex problems, we need the combined expertise of many people.

Think of a modern-day surgical team. No longer is there one genius surgeon with many helpers. Now there is a group of highly trained doctors and nurses, each with their own speciality. If patients are to experience good outcomes the surgical team must combine their collective expertise in order to succeed.

The more complex and innovative a task the more dependent we are on teams.

Are you building the right kind of team that will solve the challenges unique to your business?
