Shape high performance teams

What are the characteristics of a high-performing team? How can you build one? This two day program answers these crucial questions for leaders of teams. The program is built on a research- based framework of team best practices. The session provides  practical tools and tacts for leading teams, practice conditions for experimenting and learning, and time to reflect on how to enhance one's impact as a team leader--all the while drawing on the lessons of honeybees. 


What can bees teach us about high-performing teams?

A single honeybee colony can include tens of thousands of bees. To the untrained eye, an open hive looks like complete chaos. Look closer and you will discover the secrets of one of nature's best examples of a high-performing team. There lies within the hive an intricate organizational structure, one with observable teams, patterns, designated jobs role, efficiencies, and incredible productivity. Building and leading a successful team is in many ways like running a successful hive, because there is indeed a beautiful order to be found in what initially might look like chaos.
