Is your team achieving exceptional results or just doing okay? Is your team operating ethically? Is your team operating sustainably, or burning people out and pulling rabbits out of hats to make your numbers?

In this webcast you'll take a step back to learn best practices from 61 organizations in 11 countries, including Google, Zappos, Infosys, Cisco, eBay, GE, Toyota, Xerox, successful start-ups, and nonprofits like Mayo Clinic and KIPP. The old leadership models are no longer viable when it comes to creating high-performing teams. It's time for fresh approaches that challenge long-held leadership assumptions and practices. Learn how to bring out the best in your team from these two expert practitioners.
