Session Description
We desperately seek out one another to collaborate over time. Yet our will to collaborate often weakens when problems arise that erode our trust in one another or in the system under which we are often forced to operate. This workshop is designed to look at what makes teams succeed and fail. During the session, we will discuss the requirements for effective teaming, the common interpersonal obstacles we often face, and leadership strategies for overcoming these barriers.
