Every leader, whether in business, sports, or battle, aspires to assemble and guide a high performing team that will achieve outstanding results and surpass everyone's expectations. There have been many books, articles, and blogs written about assembling high-performing teams, and countless examples of highly successful teams in all walks of life. Why is it then that we struggle to accomplish this in our place of work?

In this session, we will go over key strategies that will help any Agile leader build their own high performing teams. These strategies are easy to understand but hard to implement. Having had first-hand experience building high performing teams, Yasser will speak to the nuances associated with implementing these strategies and what challenges leaders can expect to encounter when deploying them.

  • What makes a team high performing?
  • What should a leader look for in people they hire?
  • What role do environmental factors play and how to change them?
  • What kind of actions can transition a team from average to great?
