This lecture presents an overview of the most cutting-edge science on high-performing teams. We no longer have to guess or wonder why some teams seem to have that magic "it-factor." Through an understanding of the research, we can identify the elements that make a team truly high-performing. In an increasingly difficult hiring market, it is to every orthodontist's advantage to invest in building strong and resilient teams where turnover is the exception and patient care is excellent.
Identify your team on a spectrum of team performance and develop an understanding of key measurable metrics that contribute to the team dynamic they currently have.
Identify the communication patterns of your team with an eye towards identifying the kind of communication that is predictive of high-performing teams.
Apply the data from the most up-to-date scientific studies on team performance to improve the energy, engagement, communication, and overall performance of your team.
