As we continue to work through the complexity brought about by the current pandemic, our ability to collaborate with our teammates is paramount. Yet we all know how difficult it can be working with colleagues who do things differently to us, alongside continuing to perform when faced with new challenges. How can leaders overcome these difficulties and build cohesive and resilient teams?

On Wednesday 19th August we hosted the world-renowned team experts Prof. Suzanne Bell and Dave Winsborough to explore why self-aware teams win.

Discussing Prof. Bell's scientific research and experience working with NASA, this was a unique opportunity to learn how to build high-performing and cohesive teams. The speakers  discussed:

  • Why self-awareness is critical for team performance.
  • The impact of surface & deep team characteristics.
  • The importance of team composition.
  • How to building high performing teams.
