Interaction Dynamics in Top Teams
Top executives visibly walking a largely unified path has a powerful impact on the overall motivation and productivity of an organization. Being able to create such a co-spirit in top teams cannot be limited to formal gatherings but has to also dominate the dynamic interface between its leaders during the more informal, daily collaboration among its members.
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 valuable results. The outcome of this chemistry will ultimately influence not only leadership teams but also vast areas of the entire organization and their basic motivation levels and productivity. Needless to say this has great implications for the company’s overall performance, at least in the mid-term.
Therefore, it is crucial that positively synchronized dynamics can establish themselves at the top levels of an organization and can have a strong and productive cascading effect. Without any doubt, a competitive 21st century organization and its leadership team has to find ways to:
- Optimally bring together and merge the various talents of individual executives with those of others.
- Generate highly productive synergetic thinking and interaction between its leaders every week of the year.
- And a debate culture that can utilize and thrive on a variety of smart, valid viewpoints.
