The Dynamics of Leadership Teams
Our basic views on interaction dynamics in top teams
Central to a company's productivity is the quality of interaction among its members. The most influential factor is how effective the dynamic interface
and shared intelligence
between its leaders is.
Organizations tend to hire top executives with enormous talent and proven performance records. Yet at the end of the day it is the chemistry
among board members that decides how capably all of their skills and assets come together in order to generate real results. The outcome of this chemistry will ultimately influence not only leadership teams but also vast areas of the organization itself. This can have great impact on the company's overall performance over time.
Therefore, it is crucial to establish synchronized dynamics
at the top levels of an organization in order to have a strong and productive cascading effect.
Without any doubt, a competitive 21st century organization and its leadership team has to find ways to:
- Generate highly productive dynamics of synergetic thinking and interaction between its leaders.
- Optimally bring together and merge the various talents of individual executives with those of others. This allows leadership circles to end up in the famous state of “being far greater than the sum of their parts.”
