Developing High Performing Teams

High performing teams may be more likely to display the following characteristics;

  • Diversity. Modern global business requires for organisations to operate within a variety of work environments. A broad mix of individuals within teams can help organisations to prepare for the associated challenges.

  • A shared vision: With a clear goal in mind for the team as a whole, individual members are able to establish a clear line of sight between their specific day-to-day responsibilities and the broader, long-term objectives of the business.

  • The right mix: What complementary skills and attitudes does each team member bring to the table? High-performing teams may well consist of highly capable individuals, but it is crucial that they are able to work effectively with others.

  • Inspirational Team Leaders: Leaders of high-performing teams show a propensity to pull, rather than push. A followership is created by their ability to inspire team members.
