Ordinary or Extraordinary? Why Some Teams Suck and Some Don't


Ever notice how certain team experiences feel exhausting while others enlighten you and help produce the best work of your career? If two-thirds of employees are disengaged (Gallup study), then even the most reliable team might appear moderately uneven and not very memorable. Yet, other team experiences can serve as career high points helping us to remember the reasons why we love where we work, lessons we’ve learned containing positive impacts, and teams we’ve performed with that produced outstanding outcomes. Research using the Extraordinary Teams Inventory (ETI) even exposes the reality that the average group contains roughly 15% of members who suck as employees and 15% who are genuinely extraordinary.

So, what sets extraordinary teams apart from the rest? Join author Kevin Coray and expert practitioners from the Extraordinary Teams Partnership, Sally Stamp and Todd Weinstein, for this practical discussion of what makes extraordinary teams tick. Discover how these experts incorporate the ETI and its research to help their clients make progress toward being extraordinary. Attend this webinar to look through the lens of exceptional teamwork and uncover how to coach your team to their highest potential.
