Our work environments are undergoing constant change and are becoming more complex. Consequently, businesses must always be open to the demands and challenges of the future and be able to identify opportunities as they arise. The integration of these insights into daily routines, strategic planning and leadership requires both stability and flexibility in the organisation. It is about more than just good cooperation or strong leadership – it takes a Winning Teams mindset!
The concept of Winning Teams requires leaders and employees to combine their competencies and strengths. They need to work together in small, strategically selected groups, where aims and motivation are interlinked by a will to jointly achieve common objectives. The Winning Teams concept is all about giving individuals a chance to accomplish something bigger and better by working together rather than just as individuals, so that the whole becomes greater than the sum of the parts.
Based on our modelling experience, a Winning Team should consist of a small number of people, 3–4 participants, with complementary knowledge, competency and experience. The participants should also have different personal qualities, strengths and talents. They must be committed with a common understanding of what they are jointly trying to accomplish and recognise that they are mutually responsible for achieving these goals.
