60 Minutes

In most organizations there is no lack of work. Historically, there is more work than resources to do it.  The trajectory of that will not change to our reality to bring us more work.  We have adapted to this environment by being more creative in order to produce more with less.  A high performance team can aide in creativity and efficiency.  When a team is working as a well oiled machine leveraging all strengths to the maximum, amazing business transformations can occur.  Not only can the transformation occur, but the efficiencies gained can be phenomenal.  Building a high performing team does not have to be a daunting task.  Once built the empowerment, engagement and quality of work produced by the team is phenomenal.

Even if you are a manager, leading a team indirectly or part of a project team you have influence to elevate the team to high performance. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Why a high performing team
  • The Evolution of Greatness - the Framework
  • Creating a strategic roadmap to achieve high performance
  • How to know you have achieved the goal of high performance
