We all know what executive teams are capable of when they are connected, confident, challenging and consistent: we’ve seen this first-hand during the pandemic.
Executive teams stumble when senior professionals at the top of their functional game allow their pride to overpower team performance. Egos, turf wars, battles over resources and a desire to be the favourite of the CEO (or worse the shareholders), all too often create toxicity which can prove very hard to clean up.
Without early intervention, these behaviours can become endemic, irrevocably damage culture and impact performance. It’s up to you to monitor the vital signs of your executive team before this toxicity seeps to the core of your organisation.
That’s why we’re sharing with you the 5 principles of high-performing executive teams so that you can evaluate the health, performance and effectiveness of your senior leadership team (SLT) and kickstart change.
