High performance teams are able to increase the efficiency of work and generate innovative ideas that foster a competitive edge. Successful teams have a positive impact on employee engagement and a direct impact on how your organization meets its strategic goals. In a team environment, leaders must build a sense of team as they stimulate collaboration and group decision making. In addition, team leaders are often expected to involve employees from different parts and levels of the organization in projects and teamwork even when they do not have direct authority over team members. These cross-functional teams can be the driving force for change and improvement in your organization.
