In 2010, a team of psychologists set out to study teams. In a study with 697 volunteers, the team first discovered that some teams were smarter than other teams. The team then identified the characteristics that distinguished smarter teams from the others. They discovered that there were three distinguishing ingredients. First, everyone on smart teams contributed equally to the teams' discussions. Second, all members of smart teams scored high on reading emotions. And, finally, smart teams had more women than men. As the world becomes increasingly dominated by online collaboration tools, the team of psychologists recently took these ingredients and tested if they translate to teams that collaborate online. The findings may surprise you. Hint: You may never collaborate face-to-face again. Ever.
