DREAM TEAMS: WORKING TOGETHER WITHOUT FALLING APART

Why do so many partnerships and groups break down—and why do a select few break through spectacularly?

We all know that the best teams are more than the sum of their parts, but collaboration so often fails to fulfill this promise. Studies and statistics reveal unambiguously that individuals consistently outperform teams in terms of efficiency and creativity.

Then there are the teams that defy the odds. This book is about those Dream Teams: the creative agencies, rap groups, social movements and ragtag armies that manage to pull off amazing things together, far beyond what any individual could do. Shane Snow takes us on an adventure through history, neuroscience, psychology and business to reveal what separates groups that simply manage to get by from those that get better together.

Drawing on the history of pioneering women in the FBI and law enforcement, Snow explains how to leverage team members’ diverse perspectives and experiences. He reveals why DaimlerChrysler, one of the biggest mergers of all time, flopped, while the Wu-Tang Clan succeeded—and the one factor that predicts failed mergers, marriages and partnerships. Through the example of the Wright Brothers, he teaches partners and groups how to fight with one another productive and he dissects great social movements throughout history to decode the science of becoming open-minded, from the integration of Jews into Argentinean society, to the acceptance of gay rights in America.

ALL ATTENDEES WILL RECEIVE A COPY OF DREAM TEAMS!

WORK THAT’S WORTH IT by Joe Mechlinski

French law mandates at least five weeks of vacation. Australia provides both paid maternal and paternal leave. Denmark breeds work-life balance into their culture.

So why is American so out of touch? In stark contrast to these balanced regimes, Americans continue to pander through the workday. We extend our hours, snack on sad desk lunches, and forgo vacation to get ahead. But science says there’s a fatal flaw in our system…

Today, 70 percent of the American workforce is disengaged. The rat race mentality has left us sleepwalking through life — and it’s time to wake up. Join Joe Mechlinski, New York Times Bestselling author and speaker, as he introduces science into the great work debate. Joe will show you how to become better in tune with your three brains (head, heart, and gut) to help reshape your thinking, motivation, and behaviors to find greater fulfillment at work.
