UN Global Pulse: Deepening Team Dynamics and Collaboration

UN Global Pulse works at the intersection of innovation and the human sciences to inform, inspire and strengthen the ability of the United Nations family and those it serves to anticipate, respond and adapt to the challenges of today and tomorrow.

To achieve this, UN Global Pulse draws on a range of approaches and tools, including data science, strategic foresight, behavioural science and digital technologies. It brings together multidisciplinary teams of engineers, designers and social scientists as well as communications, data privacy and other experts, to support a more dynamic and relevant “next-generation” United Nations.

UN Global Pulse Finland collaborates with traditional and non-traditional partners to innovate and transform the UN system. As an innovation team, it is also constantly developing its own activities and experimenting with new ways of working. The UN Global Pulse Finland office, together with Måndag, wanted to identify new ways of collaborating and strengthening the Finland team’s culture. Global Pulse Finland worked together with Måndag across six habits of collaboration including explorations around how the team sets the rhythms for its work, how the team shares information and how the team can continue to embed emotional well-being in how they relate to one another in the face of complex challenges.
