Managing team dynamics lessons

Introduction: Why teams thrive and fail

What’s the secret to successful teams? The answer lies in understanding what drives and motivates each of your employees. In this course, you’ll learn how to use science to understand, navigate, and improve team dynamics.

Lesson 1: Understanding behavioral drives

Behind our actions are core behavioral drives that are innate to who we are. And behind those core drives are needs that motivate us. Understanding these four core drives is key to understanding your team dynamics.

Lesson 2: Learn how your team's wired to perform

The fastest—and easiest—way to find out how your team is wired to work is through workplace behavioral assessments. In this course module you’ll learn about the PI Behavioral Assessment™.

Lesson 3: Leverage behavioral strengths within the team

Now that you understand how your team is wired to work, it’s time to figure out how to leverage employees’ strengths to maximize productivity.​

Lesson 4: Tailor your management style

Just as employees don’t work the same way, they don’t like to be managed the same way either. Learn how to support them in their preferred way.​
