Five Attributes of High Performance Teams and Cultures

You’ll walk away from the Building High Performance Teams and Cultures program with the tools needed to demonstrate these attributes!

Psychological Safety

High performance cannot be achieved and sustained without a psychologically safe environment. Psychological safety is more than an environment based on trust, it requires that leaders enable their team members to demonstrate the candour, accountability, respect, and interpersonal risk taking that are essential to performance. Watch The Video.

Accountability

Accountability occurs when leaders create a collaborative and co-operative environment where team members are empowered to be proactive and to look for opportunities to contribute to the team and to the organization’s success. It is an environment where team members demonstrate the commitment and integrity required to achieve high performance. Watch The Video.

Meaning

Studies show that when people believe their work matters, they are four times more likely to be engaged, far more motivated, learn faster, and more fulfilled. This requires that leaders actively seek to understand what is most meaningful to each of their team members and then align each team members’ individual desire for purpose in their work with the organization’s purpose, vision, and strategy. Watch The Video.

Impact

Impact is about meaningfully recognizing and appreciating team members for their contributions and effort, as well as for the outcomes they achieve. When leaders connect team members to the impact they have on success, team members know their work is valued and as a result productivity, engagement, and motivation are significantly increased. Watch The Video.

Continuous Learning

When leaders foster continuous learning, team members are able to embrace discomfort and agility, and to operate with the ambiguity, flexibility, and risk-taking that is required to thrive in today’s work environment. Watch The Video.
