Building a high performing team for many organizations is just a crapshoot. Business owners and managers often bet the house when they hire the “ace”- a top performing super-star - only to find out he or she doesn’t fit in with the rest of the team. Stephen Shapiro, one of the foremost authorities on innovation and collaboration, has just published a new book called “Personality Poker” that describes how businesses can turn the team building gamble into a sure bet. Join me for the next Workforce Trends Blog Talk Radio Show when my guest Stephen Shapiro reveals why: • Opposites do NOT attract and that leads into dysfunctional relationships • The person you like the least may be the person you need the most • The Golden Rule is wrong and how it may alienate others • Most organizations are “cults” that stifle creativity, individuality, and innovation. Learn how leaders can assemble a high performing team using each person’s strengths resulting in better outcomes, more efficiency, and higher productivity.
