Teams, Groups or Mobs: Which One Best Describes Your Teams?

Friday 9:15 – 10:15 AM

Session Description

Teams don’t necessarily have synergy, and in fact, often struggle with decision making and implementation. Teams that are dysfunctional can have a significant impact on your organization’s ability to achieve your goals and objectives.

In this session, you’ll discover how individual behaviors can impact team dynamics. By recognizing those behaviors in others, as well as yourself, you’ll be able to build high performing teams with a focus on accountability, candor and results.

Learning Objectives

  1. Recognize your own behavior style in a team setting
  2. Gain insight into others’ behavioral styles —to create better team dynamics
  3. Learn tips for influencing others when you have no formal authority over them.
