Habits, Accountability, and Technology Foundations for Successful Teams

A talk by Eduardo Ortiz

The foundation for good work is established by creating an environment that holds people accountable, encourages creativity, and establishes clear norms, habits, ethics, and guidelines for how teams work together in person, with clients, and in digital spaces.

Leadership can establish this foundation through a series of thoughtfully designed pillars that enable the full potential of creative teams to be realized.
