Characteristics of Great Teams
Great leadership teams tap into their potential as a collective unit so they can serve as force multipliers for their organizations. They capitalize on the strengths of individual members, learn from each others’ successes and failures, and fill inevitable gaps — all with a focus on creating value and realizing the organization’s strategic intent.

Every day leadership team members work diligently to strengthen their organizations and are excited about the potential for growth and yet many are frustrated because they seem to be working at cross-purposes and are not collectively taking advantage of the unique capabilities they possess as a unified team. We formed RI to address this important challenge. We work with executives and leadership teams to unlock the power they possess as a cohesive team so they can work effectively to shape and stay in sync on a common strategic direction. Through this collaboration we are seeing leadership teams guide their organizations to new heights.
RI deploys a developmental approach to building great leadership teams. Team building exercises, training and consulting expertise can all be useful but teams need to commit to the hard developmental work necessary to tap into their full potential as a cohesive unit.
