Often overlooked in favor of individual efforts, groups and teams are the building blocks of modern organizations. Despite the significance of teamwork, many leaders struggle to launch and effectively manage high-performing teams. Experts in leadership development, Hogan Assessment Systems and Dr. Gordon Curphy recognize the challenges associated with team functioning and provide the framework and resources organizations need to build better teams and improve business performance.

During his session at the World Business of Leadership Summit 2013, Dr. Curphy will illustrate The Rocket Model using research from the 2012 Rocket Model book to dispel common myths about teams. Dr. Curphy will answer frequently asked questions about teams and examine several case studies, demonstrating how to launch and create high-impact teams. Session participants will then diagnose a team they lead or are familiar with using the eight components of The Rocket Model. Participants will learn to apply the model to new, established, executive and virtual teams, as well as the different resources available to improve team functioning.

Executives, managers, and human resources professionals interested in learning more about groups and teams plus ways to improve business performance are encouraged to attend Dr. Curphy's session. To learn more and register, please visit: http://summit.wbols.com/summit/.
