Team Effectiveness

Do your top leaders work as a team?

Is collaboration an important organization-wide value?

More than ever, working in teams is a requirement for organizational success. Flattened hierarchies and headcount reductions have resulted in many projects being tackled by cross-functional or cross-organizational teams. Creating a culture of teamwork in your organization starts at the top.

Today’s rapid pace of change and uncertain environments place demands on team members that lead to tension and stress . Today’s work-force is diverse, multi-generational and often a mix of experienced and new employees. Add to this the virtual environment many of us work in and you have a formula for misunderstanding, lack of empathy and strain between teams and team members.

"I honestly believe that in this day and age of informational ubiquity and nanosecond change, teamwork remains the one sustainable competitive advantage that has been largely untapped.”

Lencioni, P.
