Collaboration makes business happen. People working together can accomplish more and better outcomes than those operating in silos, and in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world, no one has all the right answers. Yet the dysfunctions and drama sometimes associated with teams can make HR leaders wonder, “Are they really worth the trouble?”
While teams provide a means of leveraging diverse thinking, experiences and perspectives – all of which can lead to a more balanced and creative approach to critical problem-solving – team challenges can often derail projects and initiatives, wasting valuable resources and leading to less than ideal outcomes. Developing high-performing teams that work effectively in our VUCA world is crucial to the success of any organization.
