Nurturing teamwork

Constantly elevating performance: why nurturing teamwork matters

What does great collaboration look like? Before March 2020, it usually meant gathering around the boardroom table, brainstorming solutions as a physical group. But in the wake of COVID, everything changed – and businesses were forced to build new collaborative techniques, adapt their strategies, and think on their feet. 

In this episode of Smartsheet Sessions, we’re taking inspiration from the world of sport to discover how leaders can nurture teams to ensure collaboration thrives – no matter how difficult the circumstances.

Sustainable business growth: from aspiration to action

In the wake of COVID-19, the phrase ‘building back better’ is on everyone’s lips – but it’s much more than PR jargon. Gone are the days where rampant growth and profit margins were the only drivers of action; businesses must now consider climate risk, responsible business principles, ESG and CSR as fundamental influences in their decision making. 

So – how can businesses ‘grow greener’ successfully, delighting customers and employees, while avoiding accusations of greenwashing? Watch the episode to find out more.
