What High Performing Teams Do Differently

Shannon Hendricks408

Why is it that some professional sports teams manage to perform at championship-winning levels year after year while most others do not? When Microsoft asked this question, that set off a six-year study to try and decipher the code. After more than 100 interviews with the people behind the most consistently successful teams and organizations in the United States, it was shown the key is to maintain a culture of greatness. Specifically, maintaining that culture comes down to four essential pillars which set a great team apart. In this session based on the book Great Teams by bestselling author Don Yaeger, participants will unpack those pillars and create practical strategies for elevating their team performance.
