Why teamwork often fails?

Teamwork, and how to influence it, has historically been one of the favorite topics of people interested in leadership and social psychology. Stable teams, who have learned working together for a long time, can be very powerful tools in the business or political world. Unfortunately, however, the rapid changes of today’s world, the intense competition, and unpredictable customer expectations, don’t any longer allow or support the formation of such teams. On the contrary, organizations are increasingly forced to put together short-term and randomly selected units that operate together only as long as the task is finished. It can also be that one employee belongs into several different teams, all with a different duration, strategy and working atmosphere.

Case study: Team Works at school!

The Mission

At a Secondary School in Singapore, there was a need to form ad-hoc, non-academic project teams for various events and initiatives. The school’s leadership wanted to know how to form more effective and efficient teams so as to maximize manpower resources.

They contacted Authorized Partner OTi Consulting (OTi), to address this issue.

New product coming out soon!

The biggest news of this year’s annual MindLab48 conference on March 26-28 is the imminent launch of a new Wiley product. We will have a chance to be among the first to qualify as authorized partners for The Five Behaviors of a Cohesive Team - an all new, proprietary offering for the EPIC platform based on the best-selling Wiley book, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni.

Current trends in human resource management

There are always challenges about the future that can’t be foreseen and which sudden emergence we can’t avoid. However, what we can do for being better prepared for the future is to be well-informed about world's current trends and prevailing key issues, to analyze and understand them. And therefore be more proactive in shaping future developments and more capable of influencing real life. The same principle also applies to the future trends of recruitment, staff management and development.

Info days in each Baltic State capital

This was the first time we decided to hold public marketing events in each capital (Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius), and to our surprise the interest was bigger than we expected! In Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania together around 45 people participated in the event, most of whom were HR personnel from bigger companies, or recruiters, trainers and consultants.

The power of introverts

Since the publishing of Susan Cain's recent book "Quiet: The Power of introverts in a World That Can not Stop Talking" there appears to be a lot of controversy on the topic of introverts and the debate seems not to end. The book itself has also received quite a bit of attention after sailing long at the top of several top-sellers lists. What even furthered the interest was Susan Cain's popular TED conference on the same topic.
