High-Performing Team Demonstration
The research is clear: High-performing teams are extremely rare, but their ability to impact an organization is limitless. If we know this is what we’re aiming for, why is high-performance so elusive and how can organizations and leaders create environments where it can flourish? Through a live performance & a facilitated conversation, a small music ensemble will offer insights into their organizational dynamics. You will walk away from the session with a greater understanding of the marks of a high-performing team, behaviors that inspire and detract from high-performance, the role of leadership in high-performance , and how leaders can inspire high-performance in the teams with whom they work.
Sometimes there’s not a ready-made training solution with your name on it. Maybe you need to tackle Kanban at the enterprise level. Maybe executives need to see how agile affects all levels of an organization. Maybe your project is stalling and you need a course that level-sets knowledge and tackles your particular roadblocks. We’re passionate about product delivery at all levels, and we’d love to dig in deep and help you!
