In this Talent Pulse research, we explore how and why teams are created in organizations and examine the practices that are the biggest contributors to positive talent and business results. Although the use of teams is nearly ubiquitous, organizations that report the highest performing work groups and demonstrate the best outcomes put three “I’s” in team:
- Intention – Meaningful team design with a clear purpose and unambiguous expectations.
- Interaction – Skills training to ensure positive team dynamics and productivity.
- Influence – Emphasis on internal and external team leadership effectiveness.
