LEADING GENIUS TEAMS
There are many misconceptions about how to form and lead high performance teams.
One of them is: get the best individuals, throw them together, and expect amazing innovation. From sports to business teams, we know that all-stars are almost always disappointing.
Another misconception: just be clear about goals and somehow individuals will perform their best.
And likely the biggest mistake: just talk about tasks, certainly never about relationships and personal response. Past and current research (for example, the current Google Aristotle project) proves all these assumptions wrong. Not only do you repel genius, you squash even mediocrity.
Exceptional results in any group moving toward a common goal require leaders to have an understanding of tasks AND relationships. The Genius Team model includes both and is a practical roadmap for leaders to guide their group through eight stages of development to sustained high performance.
Those stages include
— Make sure everyone fits
— Get the right roles
— Build mutual trust
— Guide full engagement
And then with
— Purposeful Planning and
— Excellent Execution you get
— Exceptional Results
that can only be sustained when you pay attention to HEALTHY RENEWAL.
Learn how to:
Not only do great leaders know how to guide teams through these stages,
they know there are predictable polarities (tensions) to leverage in each stage.
Such as individual AND group, diplomacy AND directness.
