Cracking The Code Of High Performance Teamwork
On this edition of Business Connections Live Steve Hyland asks Nick Fewings is CEO of a learning and development company Ngagementworks about Cracking The Code Of High performance Teamwork and why effective teamwork is vital to the success of every organisation and even more so in times of political and economic instability.
Few organisations actually quantify what it is, how to measure it and how to achieve high-performance in teamwork. Understanding why one team performs better than another is hard to crack. Google has spent millions on Project Aristotle with inconclusive results. However, Nick believes he has cracked it with a combination of behavioural profiling and the Team DyNAmics© Model he created.
