CONCURRENT SESSIONS

Forming Future Teams – Liberating Performance Innovation & Agility

 

Day:

Time:

Description:

Too often we are thrown into arbitrary teams and told to just “make it work” without regard for our innate abilities. Many times, this results in a lack of cohesion and we start to view our team members as either heroes or villains. We become so accustomed to this way of working that we do not realize how this environment zaps our powers and limits our collective potential for greatness.

There is a better way to experience “work that works” by energizing the “purpose-built” teams of tomorrow using the neuroscience of teams. During this hands-on session you will discover a new window into thinking, behavior, collaboration, and action to unlock the cognitive diversity of team members and achieve peak performance.
