We are all part of a team. Many of us are part of many teams. Teams that work well together achieve great results. Truly high performing teams are few. They achieve exceptional results, time and time again, no matter what the circumstances.
High Performing Teams don’t just happen. They are built and developed. In this Power Hour Expert session, we aim to provide some ideas to help you to do that.

- Describe the characteristics of High Performing Teams.
- Explain the five dysfunctions of teams and what impact they have on performance.
