Dream Team or Extreme Team?: Presentation Outline

Using examples from her own experience, as well as relevant examples from the business world and professional sport, Sheri explains Extreme Teams are built on four core principles:

Orientation. Your organization can attempt to build its Extreme Teams by design and by talent, but it will likely fail. Your leaders may put together a team of specialists, but that will not create what they need to win. Performance depends on both individual excellence and on how well the team works together. It is not friendship that creates an Extreme Team – it is a different kind of team relationship. It is “alignment” …

 

Continuation. Imagine a championship sports team with no head coach and without the ability to practice. There is little likelihood the team will make it to the finals if they are out there playing together for the first time, with no ability to orient themselves, correct misperceptions and mistakes, and respond to insightful and knowledgeable coaching.  The reality is that a core mechanism used to create winning teams is the ability to learn together and leverage the collective intellect…

 

Synchronization. Innovative, coordinated action on the part of a team has the potential to be the equivalent of winning the Gold at the X Games. Championship sports teams act in spontaneous, yet synchronized, ways. Extreme Teams in organizations must develop the same dynamic – a condition where each player remains conscious of the other team members and can be counted on to act in such a way as to enhance overall outcomes…

 

Execution. It’s up to your organizational leaders to provide a structure that enables the creation of a culture of execution that drives unity of purpose, alignment of commitments, coordinated action, and the ability for the extreme team to lead creatively. Having a clear purpose for breakthrough performance enables the team to produce results that not only represent an extreme win, but that are critical to the journey toward collective and interpersonal game-changing futures…

 

Sheri concludes with this inspirational challenge:

Are you going to dream of what it would be like to have a championship team that works well together, executes across boundaries & borders, and produces Extreme Results? … OR are you going to build an Extreme Team that does all of that and more?
