The research behind Team Emotional Intelligence is peer reviewed and published in the Harvard Business Review. Leverage the power of these insights with proven behaviors from agile thinking to improve how your teams interact, collaborate and perform together.
Agile teaches how to drive the car but does not provide a “map” for developing the team.
Agile speeds team progress using a set of principles and processes. Although Agile often creates high-performance teams, the team has no “map” for how to improve the team itself.
As a result, teams may struggle for a while before finding a route to reaching their full potential; some teams may never find their way to high performance.
Team Emotional Intelligence provides the “map” but not instruction on how to drive the car.
Team Emotional Intelligence is a framework that provides such a “map” for building the team. TEI helps the team build a culture that allows it to energize members, remove obstacles to progress, and create psychological safety, trust, and team identity.
TEI has been shown to significantly boost performance; however, it does not provide a set of processes that teams can follow.
Emotional intelligence has a profound affect not just on team dynamics but also on organizational culture. In his research Steven Wolff has found that culture is often on the list of factors for team performance – but what is culture?
Says Wolff, “When you can affect the rules of behavior – the norms – you can change the patterns of behavior that you see and feel – which is the culture.”
