Project HR Podcast: Building High-Performance Teams
The goals of any corporation cannot be achieved by one person – it requires the skills and talents of many, unified in their efforts. In short, you need a team - but building a high-performance team demands great leadership, inspiration, and a plan for how to reach the finish line.
I recently had the pleasure of being featured on the ProjectHR Podcast hosted by Jennifer Orechwa. We talked about building high-performance teams. Jennifer created a great space to dig in and explore. We covered so much ground, but the key concepts are:
▪ What makes a team "high-performing?"
▪ How utilizing unique metrics can better measure progress and performance; ▪ The leader's role in supporting high-performing teams; and
▪ The best ways to manage high-performing teams in the wake of a success or a failure.
"High performing" can have a different meaning to everyone. A good way to define a high-performance team is one that achieves great results under pressure with limited resources while building and enhancing the culture of the individuals on the team. The overall goal must be focused on the team's mission.
