The reality is that team based work structures are and will continue to grow in importance. In fact:
81% of Fortune 500 companies are building at least partially team-based organizations.
More than half of Fortune 500 companies use some formal work teams as part of their operations.
Managers spend 40% -50% of their time in team meetings.
As many as 17 million meetings occur daily.
While effective teams can produce extraordinary results, studies have found that an estimated 50% of self -directed teams result in failure (unable to meet goals)
Why do so some teams get excellent results while other, seemingly similar teams, struggle?
There are many documented reasons why teams succeed, and why teams fail. Most of them are based on a team’s ability to develop strong relationships, build trust and common vision. Studies have shown that teams are most creative and productive when they achieve high levels of participation, cooperation and collaboration- all interactive behaviors.
The webinar will share essential characteristics of teams and the key elements of high performing teams, focusing in on the critical components of:
Diversity to encourage creativity and innovation
Communication and collaboration
Trust and respect
Behavioral data can be a valuable asset to improve communication between team members, positively effecting trust and collaboration. The data provided from behavioral assessments can collectively identify the culture of the team and the impact on individual members. It can help to identify the “key difference” between a high performing team and one that is not meeting their goals.
