Teams are complex, adaptive systems made up of people (who are also complex adaptive systems) nested in other complex, adaptive systems, Most of what happens in teams is instinctive — members are not aware of the systems in play and how these affect whether and how they collaborate. The more clearly a team understands its own dynamics, the better decisions it makes and the more able it is to respond to change in its environment. In this thought-provoking webinar we explore how the team’s emotions, cultural, thinking patterns and narratives come together to create or hinder high performance — and the role that team coaching plays in helping the team see itself more clearly.
Teams are the cellular structures that make the corporate body work. Without teams, it would be next to impossible to organise large, complex tasks.
