A good team needs a diverse group of people and the different views that they bring. A good team needs a considerate leader that can encourage cooperation and create a resilient environment where people can operate at their best. A good team should be built on strong social bonds that hold tight even when their only point of contact is a phone or a computer.

But how does this work and how can psychology help us better understand how human groups function?

Join leading experts from the worlds of evolutionary psychology and business management, Tracey Camilleri, Samantha Rockey and Robin Dunbar as they talk us through the ‘social brain’. They will explore what these ideas can teach us about the relationships between human groups and how to create great, high-performing teams.
