Research shows that what differentiates a high performing team from a regular intact team is that its members are, “deeply committed to one another’s personal growth and success.” Katzenbach and Smith (1993)
The best team outperforms a group of the best individual contributors every time. Team performance is directly correlated with connection – love for the mission, the work and each other. And the best leaders create the emotionally safe and cognitively challenging space for their teams to connect and perform.
