The objective of which was to assist the organization in succeeding despite unpredictable events. The research provided insight into the advantages of teams and teamwork in higher education. This study utilized action research methodology to gather qualitative data. The inquiry approach of one-on-one interviews and a world café employing principles of appreciative inquiry allowed participants the opportunity to explore team functionality, enrich an already high-functioning team, provided the opportunity for new insights, and the opportunity for deeper conversations. The identified components of high-functionality within the faculty team studied were mutual support and collegiality, intrinsic motivation, and open, two-way communication, which may be of value to the team studied, the leadership team within the SHS, other program departments, and the organization as a whole.
