Author of Top Teaming: A Roadmap for Teams Navigating the Now, the New, and the Next
Duration 60 Minutes
These are tough times for top executive teams who are faced with a new series of challenges and paradoxes that require new mindsets and thinking about driving success. Top Teams carry with them tremendous Collective Intelligence in their deep, operating experience, and the ability to exert significant influence over their company’s direction, focus, and performance. They have both the opportunity and obligation to navigate big change and make a significant difference in the future of their organizations. Ultimately, they are responsible for dealing with both the “Now and the New”—the current realities and the evolving future.
While all Top Teams have this responsibility, only some do it well. Even fewer do it well when under tremendous stress and pressure. Becoming a High Performing Team – a goal for most teams is now just the ticket of admission to today’s complex and ambiguous world. In my research and interviews with senior leaders, I have found that there are ten essential groups of practices that differentiate and elevate Top Teams from classic high performing teams and groups of talented individuals. These are the “must-dos” that make the difference between great teams that drive great results and everybody else.
