Adrian Gostick: Managing the 21st Century Team

Adrian Gostick is a global workplace expert and thought leader in the fields of corporate culture, leadership, and engagement. In his challenging, information-packed talks, Adrian provides real solutions on managing change, driving innovation, and leading a multi-generational workforce.

He recently stopped by our office, and shared insight into how management styles are evolving to meet the needs of the 21st century, multi-generational team. This was based on research from his book The Best Team Wins: The New Science of High Performance.

The biggest shocker for our team was that successful managers aren’t necessarily cultivating the most harmonious teams, instead they encourage their team members to debate and question each other in order to spark innovation — all within a culture of respect and collaboration of course.

A second highlight from his talk is that team members shouldn’t be treated equally anymore, instead people want to be treated as individuals to help them achieve their own personal goals.
