In episode three, we touch on team dynamics.
As the need grows to become better at being “social” in business, we make the point that there is something to be learnt about the dynamics between people. When people come together, something happens between them that can impact the effectiveness of their collaborative efforts.
In this podcast, we discuss the work of Wilfred Bion, whose descriptions of “what goes on underneath” can help shed some light on some of the mystifying dynamics within groups of human beings.
