Teams don’t simply happen. Indeed, teams are far beyond groups of people. A group of goal-focused individuals with specialised expertise and complimentary skills to collaborate, innovate and produce consistent superior results makes a high-performing team. Every leader has a vital role in bringing these people together to build, manage and sustain high performing teams because effective leadership is directly proportional to performance excellence.
