Team chemistry—you know it when you see it, but it can be hard to define. In 2019, The Today Show dismissed Ann Curry as co-anchor. Many sources attributed the cause of her dismissal to “bad chemistry” between her and Matt Lauer. Shortly after, The Today Show ratings dropped, while its competitor, Good Morning America, saw an increase. Coincidentally, the Good Morning America team seemed to be having more fun—many would say they had better chemistry.
Chemistry can serve as a basis for understanding team development and performance. For this reason, people often use the word “chemistry” to describe an intangible, but positive effect on team performance. Choosing team members is like choosing elements for a chemistry experiment—they are the basic building blocks. Assembling team members together in the right way—leveraging strengths—is like creating a balanced chemical equation. Monitoring how team members interact is like observing a chemical interaction, and measuring team results is like analyzing the results of a chemistry experiment.
This virtual instructor-led training event will provide you with the tools you need to be able to create team chemistry. This three hour-program offers workplace tips, self-assessment exercises, real-life scenarios, practice activities, and more.
