The amount of time spent on team functions at work (group meetings, phone calls or email) is now estimated to be over 80% of the employee’s workday.  Building effective teams has become a more critical business imperative than ever!

Selecting energetic, ambitious, and capable people is always a plus for the team, but team members typically represent different business functions, products, lines of business, or geographies – all competing for influence, resources, and promotion.

And while teams are the way business gets done today, teamwork is made even more challenging by the dramatic growth of hybrid workspaces, which often leads to disconnection and makes it harder to meet deadlines and produce quality outcomes.

Creating team effectiveness is not as simple as assembling a group of people and charging them with a business-critical project. It requires aligning around shared purposes, goals, and processes, as well as having clear agreements about how to be together and create high performance. This requires attention and intention to ensure the kind of optimal team functioning that leads to optimal outcomes.
