The teams in your organization have a great capacity for cooperation – if you setup the environment for that to occur. But culture eats strategy for breakfast! What we see time and again is dysfunctional cultures where competition between groups has created a win-lose scenario.
Leadership is the key. Leaders set the tone and influence the culture through their actions. Understanding the latest research in neuroscience and cognitive psychology can help greatly in setting up the processes and environment for your teams to work together to achieve the level of performance you need.
Team composition is far less important than team interaction.
Productive teams are at the heart of successful organisations. However traditional approaches to hierarchy and teams are giving way to a more decentralised ‘network of teams’approach. In the new team environment, do you know how to:
- form a highly functioning team?
- foster productive team dynamics?
- correct dysfunctional dynamics?
- deal with difficult “non-team players” in a team environment?
- conduct specific conversations that foster a culture of team excellence?
