About the webinar

Most of us have been on teams that were great and others—if we’re being honest—that weren’t so great.  What are the characteristics and habits of highly effective teams?  What role do leaders play in getting teams to the next level?  And crucially, what actionable steps can leaders and team members at all levels—from team leaders to senior executives—take to support excellence while avoiding common pitfalls?

Between them, our experts Bernard Letendre and Tom O’Neill bring together the science of leadership research with real-life experience in senior executive leadership roles.  In this insightful webinar, they will share their wealth of knowledge and experience, delving into the intricacies of executive leadership teams, dissecting what truly defines a team, and uncovering the essence of high-performing teams.

Whether you’re a seasoned leader seeking fresh insights or looking to understand the dynamics of effective teams, this webinar promises to provide an enriching discussion that will leave you inspired and equipped with actionable insights.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please note that this webinar is offered by Humance free of charge.
