Videos: Teamwork 101
Build a foundation for better collaboration with Prof. Thompson's four-video series
A team is only as strong as its people — and its leader. Professor Leigh Thompson created the Teamwork 101 series to improve individuals' leadership skills so they can maximize the strength in their numbers whether they're in the boardroom or brainstorming with the group.
Each of the four video toolboxes provides step-by-step best practices and strategies for building strong teams, examples, cases and the research behind each set of recommendations.
