5 Components of Extraordinary Teams
Machines are evaluated based on the output of the entire unit, not the impressiveness of their individual parts. Extraordinary teams, like great machines, require certain components that hold their pieces together. While most organizations focus exclusively on building the skills of their individual members, elite organizations invest in the “stuff” that transforms a collection of talented individuals into extraordinary, machine-like teams. This course is packed with insights, examples, and humor that will keep attendees engaged. Attendees will leave informed and energized, eager to take their respective teams to a higher level.

What Are We Doing Wrong?
“What are we doing wrong?” The short answer is ‘nothing.’ Chances are that your operation is productive and at least a little profitable. We should be asking, “Are we doing it the best way possible today?” I suspect the answer to that question is ‘no.’ The real leader will ask and answer the next question, “Do we need to change?”
