A lot of focus is put on leadership development when in reality, the leader is just one person, the real driving force behind a leader’s success is their team. A team operating effectively as a single unit will consistently outperform the best individuals acting on their own. More importantly, no matter how knowledgeable and competent individual team members may be, a dysfunctional team will undermine organisational goals, drain morale and waste effort.

With the increased commercial pressures and target driven cultures, many leaders are now considering how to get the highest levels of performance from their people. The most critical factor in driving effective teamwork and team engagement is the behaviour and style of the leader.
