Teamwork and Leading High-Performance Teams: The Five Disciplines of Today's Most Effective Work Groups

96% of executives cite poor collaboration as the main source of workplace failures. How can we lead teams to improved performance given the volatility and challenges teams face today:

  • Need to work more cross-functionally
  • Emergence of more remote, global and gig workers
  • Rise of the Millennials and Gen Z
