Teams expert and longtime Global Institute for Leadership Development faculty member Patrick Lencioni knows how to cultivate and lead successful teams. As you’ll see in this video clip, he admits it isn’t easy. But, the payoff is well worth the effort. In fact, he argues that building effective teams may be the single most important competitive advantage. And, nothing will have a greater impact on you and the people you work with than making the conscious, strategic decision to develop dynamic teams that are greater than the sum of their parts.
