What makes teams great?

In a recent study* 90% of employees say that they spend 1/3 to 1/2 of the day in teams. However, 86% of employees and managers complain about a lack of effective teamwork and see it as the main cause of mistakes and poor work results. Recent discoveries in the neurosciences confirm these findings.

Other studies show that psychological safety is the main criterion for successful teams.

Harvard Professor Amy Edmundson describes [this] as a “team climate characterized by interpersonal trust and mutual respect in which people feel comfortable”.

Building trust for each other requires attention and time, which is often lacking in everyday life.

Heidi Ahrens and Julia Kunz have developed the TeamBooster using the Whole Brain Method (HBDI®) **and the latest neuroscientific findings.

The concept combines brain-friendly team development and executive coaching in a compact blended learning format.

** Whole Brain® Thinking allows you to harness your teams’ thinking diversity for better results. It is the foundation for the highly validated Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument® (HBDI®), which measures thinking preferences of individuals, teams, and organisations.
