When work requires close collaboration, even the most extraordinary individual effort is no substitute for great teamwork.
In business, as in sports, the source of team spirit has always been something of a mystery, but team spirit occurs when people team with others to solve problems, overcome obstacles, and achieve common goals. In short, Teamability is the ability to connect with others to form a productive team.
There are many ways to measure skills, talents, and traits, but teaming metrics are unique. This webinar will examine the concepts and applications of Teamability, discuss recent and ongoing research, and will provide all participants with their own opportunity to have an online Teamability experience.
Join Dr. Janice Presser, CEO of The Gabriel Institute, creators of Teamability: The Technology of Teaming™, and Ronald Adler, CEO of Laurdan Associates, a human resources management consulting firm specializing in HR audits and employment practices liability risk management, as they discuss:
