Fundamentals & Practices for getting a High-Performance Team

A ‘High Performs team’ is a team that highly focuses on achieving their goal and continuously improve. They outperform all other similar teams and they outperform the expectations that others have. Maybe this sounds too good to be true?

During this talk, we will look at the fundamentals of a ‘High Performing Team’ and how the context they operate in can help them to become ‘High Performing’. We will deep dive into the characteristics of the teams in common and some of the practices these teams use like:
– DISC to improve communication
– Refinements with Examples
– How to enable the Self-organization

This talk is based on the experience Geoffrey has with eight teams that he coached in the journey into becoming a ‘High Performing Team’.
