Health and wellness of an organization's or project's performance can be relatively simple. In a snapshot we can know a lot: dashboards and metrics tell us about how well our work is progressing, what milestones we're reaching, and what color-coded alert state of panic we should be in. And we can optimize our way into just about any green-colored diagram we choose.
Teams, and the humans that comprise them, are fascinatingly complex and complicated. We can fool ourselves into believing all kinds of things about them. And yet, we can't really know for sure unless we dive in deeper and learn about their health, their needs, and try to help them optimize for their individual successes. In this presentation, Kara shares her approach to the care and feeding of humans, with lessons gleaned from working at the highest echelons of sports, entertainment, government, and technology.
