How can team performance be enhanced in spite of organizational hierarchies? What strategies, at the micro-level, such as “alternative scripts” have been shown to bolster employee engagement and improve social cohesion? This session underscores the vital differences between effective teams and good “teaming” and offers research-based insights into the attributes of high performing collaborators. Teams and teamwork are not up to leaders given teaming is fundamentally a group activity, but leaders create the conditions for thriving teams. This session details those elements for success and shows how well-organized teams evoke dignity and respect and bring joy and meaning to our work and work lives.
