“The most powerful thing leaders can do is help their people and teams become high performers. It doesn’t just happen. It’s intentional. It’s not glamorous. It’s not easy. But it is definitely the most professionally rewarding.”
- MAURICE VELASQUEZ
Excerpt from chapter one:
"High performance teams happen when a group of people come together, train regularly, identify obstacles, overcome challenges together, and work well with each other to successfully reach common goals on a consistent basis.
High performance teams are possible. They are real. They happen in organizations all around the country who commit themselves to making these teams a reality. They are not just an “ideal” hope. They are real. It’s what makes companies grow. It’s what creates opportunities for everyone. Like a garden where plants can grow and flourish, so is a great team where people and ideas can be nurtured and grow.
But like a flourishing garden, high performance teams do not just happen. They do not come into existence by accident. They do not develop on their own. They are built. They are constructed on purpose, with care, a plan, and patience. They are assembled with intention.
There are countless examples of sports teams that spend an enormous amount of money to recruit the best players and yet can not get them to become a successful team. However, many teams have achieved success by recruiting good players and coaching them to become high performing.
That’s the formula: have caring managers dedicated to mentoring people. Recruit players who are good at what they do, who are willing to learn, and who are willing to grow. And as they come on board, have the managers consistently provide them with clear expectations, the tools they need, and on-going training and mentoring.
That is what produces high performance teams."
