Now more than ever, leaders must be able to build, maintain, and lead strong teams. This is especially true for companies that are breaking down internal barriers to collaboration and innovation, and those who have a geographically dispersed workforce. For leadership, the most important team to build first is the management team. But how do you "build a team" of managers or others? We know that it's not simply a matter of choosing the most experienced people on hand; it's a matter of choosing the most experienced team players, and those who have the potential to contribute to a successful team. How do you identify current or potential team players? What criteria and metrics should you use to make sure you've made the right choices?
The tracks in the Building and Leading Teams Talent Topic will answer these and many other crucial questions. They will explore the reasons for building teams, the benefits and challenges of teams, the science (and sometimes art) of leading successful teams, and the best way to measure team performance, among other considerations.
