Ineffective leadership costs American companies hundreds of millions of dollars in lost revenue, missed opportunities, preventable waste, and poor personnel decisions.

Leading High-Performing Teams teaches business leaders how to apply a proven four-step framework — used extensively by the U. S. Army to drive successful military missions — to achieve critical business objectives.

Leaders will discover how to:

  • Set conditions for success by developing a shared vision and plan
  • Enable success by preparing themselves and the team to translate a plan into action
  • Execute plans flawlessly by following up and following through to completion
  • Continually improve success rates by learning before, during, and after each event.

Leaders will understand how inspiring and developing the team, empowering team members, and communicating effectively become critical enablers of mission success.

Teams can achieve breakthrough performance levels when leaders master tools to make team members passionate co-owners of a shared vision.
