Once organizational decision makers have determined that a team (e.g., task force, committee, executive team, and board of directors) will best deliver the goals at hand, the next step in the process is to design or build the team. Given that certain combinations of employees are more effective than others, team composition and design is at the core of each unique dimension of team effectiveness. This session will highlight to some key areas that need to be attended to while designing teams such as team size, diversity, best mix of person characteristics, and common team selection biases. Attendees who apply the team design principles shared during this session can expect to boost morale, improve engagement, minimize disruptions, and maximize team effectiveness.
