Employees crave feedback. Your organization’s culture is the key to its success. Strategic planning is essential. Your competencies should be measured and your weaknesses shored up. Leadership is a thing.

These may sound like basic truths of our work lives today. But actually, they’re lies. As strengths guru and bestselling author Marcus Buckingham and Cisco Leadership and Team Intelligence head Ashley Goodall show in their book, Nine Lies About Work, there are some lies and faulty assumptions that we encounter every time we show up for work. Nine lies, to be exact. They cause dysfunction and frustration, ultimately resulting in workplaces that are a pale shadow of what they could be.

In this HBR webinar, Buckingham and Goodall will focus on lie number 1: that people care which company they work for. They will reveal why it is actually the team that carries the most weight and importance among employees across companies and industries of all sizes.  And they provide steps team leaders can take to create everyday experiences on the team, that allows each person to offer his or her unique best.

Join HBR on June 13 to learn insights from Marcus and Ashley's new book, “Nine Lies About Work: A Freethinking Leader’s Guide to the Real World” and their newly launched article as HBR’s Big Idea, “The Power of Hidden Teams.”
