Discussing Teamwork in Tampa

The 2010 LEC, “Developing and Enhancing High-Performance Teams,” brought out some of the best and brightest in the teamwork field October 22 and 23 at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay in sunny Tampa, Florida!
Chaired by Gary Latham, with co-chairs Deb Cohen and Scott Tannenbaum, the 2010 LEC was a weekend full of excellent speakers, informative presentations, and numerous opportunities to participate in the discussion of high-performance teams.
Attendees heard from 11 speakers on topics ranging from virtual teams and team debriefs to shared team leadership and teamwork in healthcare both in the United States and the United Kingdom. Attendees came from across the United States and the world, with some traveling as far as France, South Korea, Chile, and the United Kingdom to attend the event.
