Members of high-performance teams are deeply committed to the stated purpose, goals, and mandates of their missions. Accordingly, high-performance team members demonstrate that they understand what they need to focus on in order to accomplish their collective work targets.
High-performing teams identify a set of shared values that help shape the purpose of the work that needs to be accomplished. These shared values also enable team members to stay focused on the task at hand when there are distractions in the environment.
High-performance teams are often described as being high-energy entities. Teams that are in competition with high-energy teams will find themselves at a disadvantage if they aren’t able to rally the enthusiasm and energy as their rival teams can muster.
Personally & Professionally Committed
High-performance teams are characterized by the personal commitment that each team member brings to the task at hand. When team members are personally as well as professionally committed, teams can take on a life of their own and become high-performance machines.
