New Ebook from The Myers-Briggs Company Helps HR and Managers Identify Hidden Dynamics of Team Success
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — As organizations strive for success, teams play a crucial role. However, most teams aren’t high performing. The impact of hybrid working, organizational change, a longstanding emphasis on task-oriented approaches, and hidden psychological factors, are a few of the challenges today’s teams face.
The Psychology of Teams ebook by The Myers-Briggs Company aims to support people managers and organizations in establishing a culture that nurtures well-functioning and effective teams, despite the challenges.
“What most team development pieces miss are the hidden psychological dynamics within teams,” says Dr. Martin Boult, psychologist and Sr. Director of Professional Services for The Myers-Briggs Company’s Asia Pacific region. “What often happens is you get a group of people together who are all quite skilled and qualified, and leaders think ‘right, now we have the perfect power team. But that’s not usually the case.”
Visible vs. invisible team elements
The new ebook delves into teams vs. workgroups and why it’s important to know the differences, process and task management, conflict, constructive communication, and more. Additionally, it uncovers the psychological components, both visible (process, alignment and innovation) and hidden (trust/psychological safety and team orientation) – that teams must incorporate to perform at their best.
“It’s about making all the hidden stuff conscious,” says Dr. Boult. “Team members must learn how to leverage their similarities and differences, not just tolerate them, in order to achieve the best possible results.”
