High-Performance Teams

Organizational psychologist Robert Binnett of the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL) lists four leadership behaviors required in creating and sustaining high-performing teams:

  1. Spend time building the team up front – then let the team do the work
  2. Stay calm when the going gets tough
  3. Create an environment for learning from mistakes
  4. Develop team members through effective coaching

Robert discovered these leadership behaviors after studying airline crew teams, NASA teams, surgical teams, sports teams, executive teams, legal teams, and many more over the past two decades.

Improve the performance of your programming/management team by comparing its behaviors against the leadership behaviors for high-performance teams.
