Business thrives on interaction, whether we’re at meetings, making presentations, coaching, or simply chatting with colleagues. Our work is increasingly team-based, a point underlined by a recent Harvard study which found collaborative activities making up more than 50% of work in business environments. There’s good reason for this, since teams and groups achieve better results than the lone genius (see James Surowiecki: The Wisdom of Crowds). Outside the world of work, team-focused learning is increasingly taking hold as the organizational model for universities, requiring students to better understand their own behaviors as well as those of their peers.
