"There was a meta study that suggests that 70 percent of an individual’s behaviour is determined by whatever environment they are in,” says Owen Eastwood. “That was the moment I could see it and that was the first verification of that truth.” Eastwood a performance coach who has profiled a variety of elite teams including the New Zealand All Blacks and Seattle Seahawks, and worked the England men’s national football team. In wide-ranging chat, Eastwood talks to co-hosts Matthew Stone and Luke Whitworth about why the fundamentals of what makes effective teams haven't changed since human beings were hunter-gatherers 60,000 years ago. Also on the agenda were: - Why our ancestors' insights into group dynamics are as relevant as ever [5:30]; - How an environment can disable your team strategy and vision if you’re not careful [15:00]; - The need to identify stories that create archetypes of the people you want your teams to be [20:00]; - Why genuine diversity stems from an environment of trust, leaders prepared to be vulnerable, and the comfort people feel in order to express ideas [34:00]; - A quickfire round of questions [38:30].
