Lessons from Mars: How One Global Company Cracked the Code on High Performance Collaboration

Presented by: Carlos Valdes-Dapena

“Lessons from Mars” challenges the prevailing orthodoxy of corporate team building and offers an alternative approach to enhancing collaboration within organizations. Based on Carlos’s 20-plus years of experience working with teams and six years of research specifically on Mars teams, he offers a unique view into this closely-held private company and how it has unlocked the power of collaboration. Carlos will share the highlights of his research, talk about why conventional approaches to teamwork often don’t deliver stronger collaboration and present the Mars Framework and few essential tools.
