    6 Conditions Podcast Episode #002: The 6 Team Conditions Framework: Conditions vs. Causes
    Where would you start your thinking about fostering great teams and why?
    In this episode Ruth & Krister explore the underlying structural drivers of behavior in teams and why beginning with a team's structural design conditions is a powerful place to start. Teams are complex social systems and therefore simple cause-->effect models may be helpful but insufficient for getting teams on a positive trajectory. Rather creating an ecosystem of design conditions that gives rise to great performance is emphasized. The 6 Conditions (3 Essentials & 3 Enablers) Framework is discussed: 1) Real Team 2) Compelling Purpose 3) Right People 4) Sound Structure 5) Supportive Context 6) Team Coaching
