The 2016 Dialogue Webinar Series
July 20th: If there’s no ‘I’ in team …Who’s sitting at the table?
Presenter: Dr. Meg Infiorati, Director of Standards, IPMA-USA.
It is no longer enough to have the job skills that make you perfect to perform a task. Today, the capability to be a high functioning team member is just as important. But unless you took psychology as an elective, and personality psychology specifically, it is unlikely that you’ve had the opportunity to understand how people function in a social group, in our case the group is a work team.
Organizational Psychologists (OPs) are common staff in large organizations, but less than 15% of all organizations in the US are considered large according to the US Business Census Bureau, meaning they employ more than 500 staff. Yet OPs typically work at organizations that are composed of greater than 10,000 employees, leaving us with less than 5% of all organizations having OP skillsets available. And many of those hire consultants as needed which can result in a higher learning curve for the OP to be of assistance.
This presentation will give you a few basics you can use starting with your next meeting to improve communications, expand the value that each individual brings to the table, develop into a more cohesive team, and shorten your meeting time while thriving with broader results.
