A good leader knows their strength comes from their team. As you would expect, a high performance team is every manager’s dream, however like most things in life, creating an effective team is not as easy as it seems. Bringing together a group of smart, creative and driven people doesn’t mean they’ll instantly connect and work in sync.

Complexity increases even more when several teams need to be aligned and work together towards a common goal.
