Impact Executives Roundtable – High Performing Teams
On Wednesday 7th of February Trudy Peeler, Head of Transport & Infrastructure hosted a roundtable discussion for our interim community to discuss creating the right conditions for high performing teams. Rachael Hanley-Brown, Head of Leadership Consulting from Harvey Nash led the discussion which focused on the changing world of leadership, creating a more inclusive culture and the importance of a clearly defined purpose.
- Systemic approach – Companies have increasingly moved away from structured hierarchies, there is a greater focus on internal influencers. Rachael highlighted the use of tools such as social network analysis to provide a visual heat map of the real influencers at play within an organisation. This can be particularly helpful at identifying those who are central to networks or bottlenecks. It can also be critical in creating a more inclusive culture.
- A clear, defined purpose – Without this, organisations are more likely to fail. Leadership teams need to convey, a clearly defined and united purpose to help their employees understand what it means at an individual, team, and organisational level to create real change.
- Loyalty – Monetary incentives are far from the only motivator for employees (particularly for millennials and Gen Z). Providing an engaging and inclusive culture where people can feel they are contributing to a higher purpose will allow employees to flourish at work and perform at their best while maximising their commitment to the organisation.
