Leadership today has evolved greatly. Our systems for supporting high performance and leadership in teams and in entire organizations has not kept up with the times."
See the article, SlideShare and videos here.
At a recent workshop with JVS in Southfield Michigan, I shared some of the research and practical organization experience I’ve collected on high performance teams.
As we hear of findings and new development from “big data” AND “small data” (highly personalized, tracked), it is also good to explore how access to performance data can inform leadership at all levels and encourage team achievement and speed, especially when old practices that slow and interfere with performance are removed.
Also keep in mind the differences between true teams vs. psuedo-teams and groups. Many project and task groups are assembled as teams to accomplish a charge or purpose. Sometimes these groups or teams:
- produce an innovation or breakthrough success for their organizations,
- are formed based on a favorite interest or pet project idea of an executive that, in hindsight, provides limited value to their organization.
