Healthcare Team Working Together

Humans. No matter what we might wish, we have to work with them to get stuff done. Unfortunately, when we join a team, it doesn’t come with a manual. Figuring out how to get things done and get everyone pulling in the same direction can be a nightmare.

But it doesn’t have to be! In this example-driven talk you’ll learn what a personality type is, you’ll learn some methods for communicating better with others, and you’ll dip a toe into the psychology of team dynamics - all without having to read a huge textbook or a bunch of manager-focused books trying to sell you something. You’ll come away with tools you can use to be a better teammate and to create a stronger team, regardless of your role. Let’s get started actually working together!

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize the difference between a working group and a team, and what benefits and costs teams have over working groups
  • Describe the process that teams and working groups go through as they form and start to work together
  • Identify a list of ways in which you can positively affect the process to create stronger teams and better outcomes
