Teams – the Journey to High Performance

Teams.  Sometimes they can be awesome.  Sometimes they can be just awful.  High performing teams are responsible for many of the good things that we take for granted in our civilization.  Ineffective teams have been and continue to be the source of incredible amounts of wasted time, pointless effort and deep frustration.

I’m going to go out on a limb here.  If you are reading this then I am assuming that you have been or are currently a member of a team, perhaps several teams.  Perhaps you led a team in the past or lead one currently.

Teamwork is the foundation of organizational effectiveness.  Being able to turn a group of individuals into a high performing team is a key leadership skill.  Over the next few weeks we are going to follow Deborah and The Starlings as they make the journey to being a high performing team.  Full disclosure: Deborah will be accompanied on this journey by her colleague Jack, who just might look and sound like an Executive Coach.

Grab your hikers and water bottle and let’s join them on this journey!
