How do you build a team as rapidly as you can in today’s fast paced, cross-functional, digitalised, hybrid, highly regulated and hugely diverse complex world we all now inhabit? We’re told to form, storm, norm and perform or to build emotional levels trust which we now term ‘psychological safety’. Neither is the best way forward though.

This talk, based on George’s forthcoming book (endorsed by Amy Edmondson and Edgar Schein), introduces a ‘code’ that any team leader can follow, that science tells us, is the best way to quickly get a team performing at a high level.

Using the story of Ed Stafford, who made history as the 1st person ever to walk the entire length of the Amazon, along with his long term team mate Cho and several quickly formed teams of guides, George illustrates how the code works in today’s jungle of uncertainty, complexity and extreme challenge.

Packed full of real life examples, you will learn how to use the code in your teams, and what happens when you deviate from it.
