J. Richard Hackman spent his professional career researching teams and what makes the difference between teams that soar and those that flounder. After decades of research, he has some surprising insights into the sources of variation in team performance.
These sources of variation are probably not what you thought. The biggest source of variation is not coaching, nor the people on the team. It’s how the team is designed and how well the environment supports the team and teamwork. As a coach, your greatest leverage may not be interactions with individual team members (though that is very important). Your biggest impact on the team may come from assessing and adjusting the environment so the team has the support and conditions that enable great work.
In this session, we’ll explore how Hackman’s insights enable coaches to assess the team AND the environment, so they can take action to help the team soar.
Learning Outcomes:
  • *Understand the importance of the work environment in team success
  • *Ability to observe and apply a model based on Hackman's research
  • *One candidate action to take to improve the environment for teams
