    "Companies know that they derive greater creativity and innovation from teamwork - but what, they wonder, makes a great team?"  -Margaret Heffernan

    The research is clear: High performing teams are extremely rare, but their ability to impact an organization is limitless. If we know this is what we're aiming for, why is high performance so elusive and how can organizations and leaders create environments where it can flourish?

    In this unique session, participants will have the opportunity to observe and interact with a high performing team (live and in the flesh!), discuss what makes them a great team, and learn about the various roles that make them who they are. Through performance and a facilitated conversation, the Ars Nova Chamber Orchestra (ancoselfconducted.org), Washington DC's premier self-conducted orchestra, will offer insights into their organizational dynamics. You will observe and discuss what makes them tick and take away practical examples of how you can supercharge the teams you work with or coach.

    • Is your team performing, but not succeeding?
    • As a leader, do you ever ask yourself, "why don't they seem to care?"

    If you answered yes or even, "yeah, maybe" -- then you may have a challenge with engagement. It may not be a problem of a team working hard or even working well together, but it may simply be a problem of finding challenge in their work or a lack of clear vision around what they are trying to accomplish -- all of which are driven by a lack of Purpose. Purpose provides the connective tissue between the organizational strategy, product goals, and team motivations. Ultimately, an organization's Purpose sets the tone for their culture. As leaders, and sometimes as change agents, it is our responsibility to help teams learn and establish the Purpose of their work.

    It is important that we create an environment where our teams grasp why. In this session, we'll explore why Purpose is important and how it drives vision from the organization to the team to the team members. We will look at the science of Purpose, and the power of it -- how it enables engagement, improves team morale, and can improve performance. During the session we'll leverage some simple facilitation techniques that you as a leader or team member can help clarify your Purpose.
