Modern organisations are fleet of foot, agile and led by teams. It is in teams that decisions are made and teams are used to improve performance. Whether permanent or project, teams are great for dealing with complexity too. It’s the job of leaders to build teams, to lead teams and to participate in teams. It is also the job of leaders to foster a team culture in their organisations.
But creating and sustaining healthy teams is hard. It requires maturity, emotional skill and dedication. And the rewards are worth the effort: higher engagement and performance.
