Harnessing the Power of Your Team >>

We’re not always in control of who is “on” the team, but that doesn’t mean we can’t help lead and influence the team to a healthy dynamic. We can be helpful team members and influence those around us to adopt the characteristics of a high-performing, psychologically safe, effective team, from any seat.
