Team Performance – your future depends on it.
Results in our modern organizations are increasingly created in cooperation, and we spend more and more time working in teams. Teams have become the key value drivers and they will make or break your organization.
Leading a team that must deliver value? Our classic way of organizing work is under pressure, and “old” performance management is no longer effective. Dysfunctional teams drain people’s energy, kill motivation and engagement, and create expensive friction in your workflows that reduce productivity.
But there is a next level of team performance to be had if you decide to redefine performance and implement new collaboration practices. Teams will be increasingly diverse and your ability to manage diversity is critical; you must ensure seamless teamwork and flawless deliveries across not only generations, but also across many areas of expertise, functions and even national cultures.And with increasing instability and shorter cycles in almost every aspect of business, every team you lead must get up to speed quickly.
Depending on and respecting where your team is today, you need to lead in a way that supports the group evolving along the development curve from “effective individuals” towards the well-functioning, collaborative, possibly even self-organizing team.
