How do teams work? How do people from different backgrounds, with different skills, work together? Join Lezlie Wallace (IDBE Cohort 20) to see the hidden dynamics at play in every workplace team brought to light.
Teamwork is frequently used in school and work settings. Behind the simple idea of bringing people together to achieve a common goal, many underlying forces are in motion. This talk reveals what those forces are, how teams can avoid conflict and work positively together, and why the end result can be greater than the sum of its parts. Examples from building construction, healthcare, and social sciences will provide basic insights that may be used by any and all teams.
