The 5 Disciplines of High-Performance Teams
Based on an 850,000-person study of today's most profitable, innovative work teams, bestselling author Elton introduces the new science of teamwork. 

Organizations are moving to team-based work in droves, but 96 percent of executives cite poor collaboration as the main sources of workplace failures. It might be the most-pressing question businesses must address: How can managers better lead teams to improved performance given the volatility and challenges teams face today:

  • Increasing speed of change
  • Emergence of a global, "gig" economy
  • The rise of the Millennials
  • Need to work more cross-functionally

Elton's research shows a set of leadership disciplines makes the biggest difference. They help audiences apply the new science of leadership to speed productivity, inspire innovation and robust debate, manage generational differences, and create true alignment around customers.
