Episode #62: Innovative & High Performance Teaming with Amy Edmondson

There’s a big myth I want to dispel right now.  It’s the idea of the lone genius.  The person that creates and develops amazing ideas and brings them to life alone, as the hero in the story.  It’s simply not true.  

The big successes in organizations, in communities, in life … they are almost always in the presence and with the help of other people.  It’s called teaming.  Today’s episode won’t discuss the myth, but I will talk all about teaming with the world’s best expert on teaming … and that is Amy Edmondson.
