A Team of Leaders: Empowering Every Member to Take Ownership, Demonstrate Initiative, and Deliver Results

Available in a 90-minute, half-day, and full day session or customized to fit the clients needs.

Workplace teams are supposed to harness employees’ talents to tackle challenges. But the reality often falls short… leaving supervisors feeling overwhelmed by trying to motivate disengaged and uncommitted employees.

Based on the ideas in their provocative new book, A Team of Leaders, Paul Gustavson and Stewart Liff makes a compelling case organizations are perfectly designed to get the results that they get. The reason why so many organizations struggle with engagement and performance issue is because of the way work is designed. That is, as long as employees work under a design where there is one all-knowing boss who tells everyone else what to do, resulting in people working primarily on an individual basis, they will continue to struggle to find ways to engage their employees and produce results.

In this presentation, Paul and Stew shares how to design a team of leaders, whereby the supervisor only serves as an occasional advisor to the team and everyone takes on a leadership role, is involved, accountable and well-developed, When that happens, and the team is at its highest level (what we call a Stage Five team), you will have a self-motivated and engaged team that produces great results.

Through a mixture of presentation and discussion, the audience will learn:

  • Why a great leader uses teams of leaders?
  • How to assess what Team of Leaders stage your team is at?
  • Why work design is key to building a culture of commitment and engagement?
