Teamwork in Talent Development
Develop Your Teamwork Skills
Teamwork allows us to engage in important work, and teams hold immense power. Those on teams share perspectives, brainstorm ideas, and produce results beyond what’s possible alone. With organizations relying increasingly on teams to deliver impact, teamwork skills are needed more than ever.
Part of the ATD Soft Skills Series, Teamwork in Talent Development is for talent development professionals who serve as team leaders or team members and wish to improve their collaboration abilities, build successful teams, and maximize their team performance for solving business problems, meeting learning needs, promoting culture change, and more.
In this book, you will learn what teamwork means, why teams and teamwork skills matter, and how to overcome common challenges related to teaming. Organization development expert Thane Bellomo introduces a model for how you can form teams and develop your teamwork skills. It starts with framing the work around clear and important goals. This positions you and the team to encourage curiosity and build trust while you embrace conflict and engage in (healthy) conflict.
Included are detailed takeaways and advice for applying the concepts.
