DREAM TEAMS by Shane Snow--our society is full of passionate, hard-working people, but what is the secret sauce of those innovative partnerships/teams that truly breath through and add up to more?

In DREAM TEAMS: Working Together Without Falling Apart (Portfolio/Penguin Random House; June 5, 2018) author/entrepreneur, Shane Snow takes the reader on an adventure through history, neuroscience, psychology, and business, revealing counter-intuitive lessons from new science and original research. 


Shane will discuss:

How ragtag teams—from soccer clubs to startups to gangs of pirates—beat the odds throughout history

What the Wright Brothers' daily arguments can teach us about group problem solving.

How pioneering women in law enforcement, unlikely civil rights collaborators, and underdog armies did the incredible together by valuing their differences.

How seemingly bad ideas like The Black Square or the Winooski Dome help expand the possibilities of making progress.

The team players behind great social movements in history, and the science of becoming open-minded.

Cognitive Diversity, and the math behind how that awful “synergy” word actually works.


DREAM TEAMS is about leadership's imperative to seek different perspectives so we can make progress together. Snow demonstrates how differences matter (not just why) and shows how the best teams depressurize tension, leverage provocation, and open themselves to wild card ideas to find solutions that others can’t.

Provocative and entertaining, DREAM TEAMS unpacks the counter-intuitive truths about becoming better co-workers ourselves and describes the crucial traits of ultimate collaborations. Regardless of age, occupation, location, or background, we can all benefit from being better team players.
