Dysfunctional teams - How to stop the bickering and start performing

Anybody who has worked in teams has at least 1 experience where there was constant bickering, talking behind people's backs, lack of cooperation and very little gets achieved/delivered... tragically, this may be the norm in some organisations.

What makes some teams awesome to be a part of, and other a nightmare to endure?

This talk deep dives on how to turn a dysfunctional team around using an approach called "Radical Candor".
