Your Brain At Work LIVE – S6:E08 – Power and Expectations: The Neuroscience of Group Dynamics

When people work together as a team, there are several “group dynamics” that determine how well they’re able to synergize, make decisions, and get things done. The factors that determine whether a team has a positive (or poor) group dynamic include power, relationships, status, fairness, the ability to put the interests of the group ahead of one’s own, and more.

How does your organization go through the process of team building? How are you being proactive in creating an inclusive environment that inspires team collaboration?

In this episode of Your Brain at Work, Dr. David Rock,  Dr. Will Kalkhoff , and Dr. Joy VerPlanck will explore the science of group dynamics. We’ll examine the differences between status and power and analyze how leadership, group composition, expectations, and participation inequities that can impact decision-making and work outcomes.
