In this era when agile, collaborative, teams are needed to take on complex challenges, ongoing learn-ing is crucial for effective teaming. This interactive session will add to your knowledge base and your toolkit. We will start by identifying fundamental qualities of great teams by looking at recent scholar-ship and internal research by Google. We will then consider practical ways to encourage learning throughout a team’s lifecycle: when it is just starting up (a time that team learning is vitally important but often neglected), while the team is carrying out its work, and when significant projects are com-pleted or the team disbands. We will also consider real life examples of helping teams communicate and learn when they were having difficulties. A handout packet with tools and suggestions for fur-ther learning will be provided.
