Team conflicts and all that jazz...

Mistakes you should avoid when putting together a team.

When a team is functioning well, it can move mountains. An example of a well-oiled, smooth-running team is professional sailing team Brunel, which performed an unprecedented feat during the Volvo Ocean Race 2014–15 and came in second place. So, what's their secret? A clear vision and mission, goals that have been set in advance, and clear roles and ways to deal with conflicts. In this learning journey, you'll learn about what you have to focus on to have a successful team. And, more importantly, where things can go wrong in your group. Let's delve into the world of teams and team building, because you, too, can get on the road toward success!
