About

Within a High-Performance Team, people are highly skilled and can interchange their roles, leadership within the team is not vested in a single individual. Instead, the leadership role is taken up by various team members, according to the need at that moment in time. There is a sense of clear focus and intense energy within a High-Performance Team. Collectively, the team has its own consciousness and feels a strong sense of accountability for achieving their goals. Team members display high levels of mutual trust towards each other.

High-Performance Teams produce superior results compared to all other Teams. They are more flexible, adaptable, innovative and able to produce far more with far less.


The organisations we admire, and the places where most people would like to work, are known for having a special environment or corporate culture in which people feel and perform, at their best. 

These companies have meta-values that give organisational participants a sense of self-determination. In addition, people feel competent, experience a sense of belonging, have voice and impact on the organisation, and they derive meaning and enjoyment from their work. 

Employees are pleased and proud to work in such exceptionally creative, dynamic, and productive environments. They like working together, having understood that well-functioning teams can be highly efficient, not to mention more fun. (Ket de Vries)
