Strategic Management Society - Home Building High Performance Teams - 5 Simple Steps By Lyndsay Swinton There’s something not quite right at work.

Chances are you’ve been down-sized or re-engineered so radically there’s zero tolerance for mishaps or delays, and you extend your work day to pick up the slack. Step 1 - Master your own destiny Realise you don’t have to be the “boss” to build a high performance team. Step 2 - Put your eggs in one basket Chances are you’re a member or leader of many teams at work. Step 3 - If you don’t know it’s broke, how can you fix it? Regardless of how established the team is, invite constructive feedback about the team's performance. Step 4 - Proper practice prevents poor performance Footballers spend 95% of their time practicing for the big game. Step 5 - A stitch in time Keep going. As my grandmother said, don’t have a wish-bone where your back-bone should be! Citation Information: Swinton, Lyndsay.
10 Free Leadership Video Sites Once upon a time, in the “old days” of management development (it wasn’t even called leadership development), management training videos were often used in our programs. While some of them were good (classics like Meetings Bloody Meetings, The Abilene Paradox, Joel Barker’s Paradigms, anything Tom Peters, and of course the Muppet’s meeting openers), most of them were absolutely horrible. The worst ones were the cheesy HR or OSHA compliance videos (i.e., harassment, office safety) featuring bad actors and completely unrealistic scenarios. They were also quite expensive, and still are. Fast forward the wild and wacky world of Web 2.0 and free content. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. While I wouldn’t recommend any of these for a date night, they’re a great way to kill a little time at work, expand your own leadership horizons, or train and coach others. Are there others that you would recommend?
