What makes a high performing team?


The learning and development industry is saturated with different approaches, models, tools and techniques that are aimed at leading and inspiring others to achieve great things.


However, sometimes it is the simple things done well and often that can help you engage, lead and empower others to truly high levels of performance. McKinsey’s Ten Characteristics of a High-Performance Team we believe offers an approach that any manager/leader can quickly and easily adopt.


  1. Realistic goals
  2. Sense of purpose
  3. Effective communication
  4. Trust & support
  5. Resolving conflict
  6. Resources used wisely
  7. Atmosphere of openness
  8. Regular reviews
  9. Learning from mistakes
  10. Fun


Try employing these principles on a daily basis and inspire your team to achieve great things!
