High-performing teams aren’t the result of a happy accident. Research shows that they achieve superior participation, cooperation and collaboration because their members trust one another, share a strong sense of group identity, and have confidence in their effectiveness as a team. In other words, such teams possess high levels of group Emotional Intelligence.

No one would dispute the importance of making teams work more effectively. The only problem is that emotional Intelligence has been viewed only as an individual competency when the reality is that teams do most work in organizations.
