Helping People Work More Effectively

Successful team members don’t do the same thing at the same time, they do the right thing at the right time.  And while team members work together toward a common goal, individuals still must play their separate parts in the process.As organizations rely more and more on teams to innovate, problem-solve, produce, and compete at the speed of change, understanding and capitalizing on individual approaches to group processes in the bottom line on creating high performance teams.



The truth is that the definition of “who” is a leader has changed dramatically over the past 10 years, as large companies break down internal silos that were seen as limiting collaboration and innovation.


As Bill George, former CEO of Medtronic and current Harvard Business School professor writes, “The shift to collaborative organizations with flat structures is causing a reassessment of the ways that organizations develop leaders… Rather than just a few stars, global organizations will need many talented leaders – hundreds, even thousands – operating throughout the organization.”

Regardless of the method or the model, successful leadership depends, as George puts it, on “authenticity and how well-grounded leaders are.” That applies whether you are leading a global organization or a small team.  –Jeffrey Sugarman, author of The 8 Dimensions of Leadership
