(link will be shared)
Whether organisations are changing business models, aligning to future strategic plans, or developing completely new capabilities to meet customer demands, it is no surprise that the best companies are constantly evolving and innovating. And with digital technologies drastically altering the working environment, building innovative teams has become increasingly critical for businesses because innovative organisations are created by innovative teams. Research has shown that high-performing teams outperform their peers by up to a factor of 2000 (compared to high-performing individuals who only outperform their peers by a factor of 10). And only 10% of teams are deemed high-performing, while 50% are deemed average and 40% dysfunctional.
During this webinar, our guest speakers will share their insights into how to achieve innovative, high-performance teamwork based on their experience in leading and developing teams with teams around the world.
What will be covered during the webinar?
