Ep 21: What Makes a Dream Team?

Podcast Episode Cover Art Post ( × px)

If you could build your dream team, what key elements would you need to create magic and have the most impact? In this episode, we discuss what makes an effective team.

Tonya explores research released by Google that identifies five keys to a successful team.

Key Takeaways:

  • Creating a healthy work environment and how people engage with each other is just as important as who is on the team.
  • Make it easy for new people to integrate into the team by verbalizing the team norms and rules of engagement.
  • An effective team doesn’t need to be composed of friends or people who spend time together outside of work.
