Alison Coward, Founder of Bracket
While the concept of ‘teamwork’ has been around for a long time, so many of us are part of multiple teams at once that now is the time to think about it differently. As we face more complex challenges and problems, our work is increasingly being organised around “fluid teams” to bring the right expertise together at the right time. These changing dynamics bring with them the need for a new understanding for how teams work: we need to be more responsive, innovative, and learn a new set of skills for leading and working effectively as part of a team.
In this talk, Alison will share insights and research that are informing the way we work together, the habits of successful teams, principles for designing new ways of working, and how to use workshops to build an effective team culture.
