I help organizations, companies, and academic institutions succeed by providing teams with the tools to reach their maximum potential.
Work teams are important to organizations and provide the impetus for success. Teams are interdependent; they work together with a common purpose and structure. It is vital that organizational team members have open discussions to solve problems, makes decisions as a team, are accountable to each other and work together to achieve desired outcomes.
Team members are often comprised of diverse individuals, which may result in misunderstandings. A study reviewed by Harvard Business (2016) revealed that diverse teams may outperform homogenous ones in decision making because they process information more carefully. Diverse groups are synergistic in that they objectively question groupthink and are more aware of their personal biases.
