Case study: Organizational and interpersonal determinants of team effectiveness and wellbeing


Patricia Costa has been working on the determinants of team effectiveness and well-being in the last years, and focuses particularly in the health sector. The research, published in top journals, shows that interpersonal processes are fundamental for the emergence of shared motivational states that impact on the effectiveness of the teams and on the well-being of team members. This work has been developed in connection to health services, and it has been translated in specific diagnostics and interventions, therefore impacting on workplace practices and practitioner debate.
