What does it take to create a high-performing team?
Organizations thrive, or fail to thrive, based on how well the teams within those organizations work. High performance arises when teams are encouraged to take risks, fail, and learn from those small failures, a process some call “teaming.” Leaders can create the right environment for teaming and encourage individual team members to speak up, collaborate, experiment, and reflect. Extraordinary teams cultivate an exciting, collaborative environment that is built upon mutual trust, respect, and engagement.
