A look at team dynamics from an evolutionary psychology perspective and how social intelligence makes a difference to how people behave and collaborate. People have behaviours with psychological roots, which evolved many generations ago to keep them safe from predators. Today, when working in teams and leading change, these behaviours can work against success. Those psychological factors that helped protect our ancestors from tigers now can hamper how effectively people in teams work, and how they engage with other stakeholders.
Identifying some key elements of social intelligence, this presentation will offer some thoughts on how to avoid the modern ‘tiger-traps’ and build stronger social intelligence skills for more effective collaboration.
