A massive shift is taking place in the business world.
In most companies, up to eighty percent of employees are working in teams. And yet, most teams are nowhere near as effective as they could be. They’re often divided by tensions, if not outright dissension, and dysfunctional teams drain employees’ energy, enthusiasm and creativity.
Join Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton as they share proven tactics managers can use to build cohesive, productive teams, despite the distractions and challenges every business is facing. They’ll explore:
- The findings of their 850,000-person research study, outlining the most effective ways women manage their teams—showing fascinating gender and generational differences in the workforce that smart managers should consider
- Practical ways to address the real challenges today’s team managers are facing, such as the rise of Millennials, an increasing speed of change, a growing number of global and virtual teams, and friction created by working cross-functionally
- How to enhance individual engagement; ways to promote healthy discord and spark innovation on a team; and techniques to unify customer focus and build bridges across functions, cultures and distance
