services: High Performance Teams


Team is important. Everything worthwhile is created through team. And the Katzenbach & Smith research for McKinsey &Co concluded that the untapped performance in teams is enormous. Because none of us is as smart as all of us. Yet many teams fail to live up to this potential because too little focus is spent working ‘on the team’ versus ‘working in the team’.
