We work together in teams because teams work. When we collaborate, we are our most creative. We solve previously unsolvable problems. We get stuff done—the stuff that matters the most to us.
You’ve probably heard that the best teams in the world measure high on psychological safety and emotional intelligence. But we can’t just tell our teams, “do more psychological safety!” or “do more emotional intelligence!” These are outcomes, not particular behaviors that people can do.
This course is the how-to guide for building and maintaining great teams. You’ll learn the science and research about high-performance teams, the evidence-based underpinnings of great teams. More importantly, we’ll cover how to do it: we’ll learn the Core Protocols. The Core Protocols are a set of team agreements, concrete practices, and habits we can build together to get into that state of high psychological safety, high emotional intelligence, and high performance.
I’m Richard Kasperowski. I’m an author, teacher, coach, and speaker focused on team building and high-performance teams. I’ve written two books about teams, and I’ve been using the Core Protocols for quite a few years to help my teams be their best. These practices are so important that I include them in the course I have created and teach at Harvard University, Agile Software Development.
So join me in this course to learn about the Core Protocols and how to build the best team you’ve ever been on in your entire life.
