Building High Performance Teams

In today’s business environment, most organizations have resorted to using teams to tackle a variety of challenges and projects.  However, the standard approach has been to pull individuals together, give them the assignment, and wait for results, not realizing that real teams do not form by accident.  They are the result of strategic planning, staff training, and empowerment.  Important elements of teamwork include a solid understanding of how a team interacts, how it balances conflict, how it manages planning time and activities, and how well it implements the task.  A real team is an amazingly powerful force.
