The Best TEAM Wins: The 5 Disciplines of Today's Most Effective Team Leaders

(also available as a joint presentation with Chester Elton)

Based on an 850,000-person study of the most profitable, innovative work teams, Adrian Gostick introduces you to the new science of teamwork

The vast majority of employees’ days are now spent working collaboratively, but 96 percent of executives cite poor teamwork as the main source of workplace failures. It might be the most-pressing question organizations must address: How can managers better lead teams to improved performance given the volatility and challenges teams face today:

  • Increased speed of change
  • Emergence of a global, gig economy
  • The rise of the Millennials/GenZ
  • Need to work cross-functionally

Gostick's research has shown a set of leadership disciplines that makes the biggest difference in building today’s best teams. His program will help your leaders:

  • Manage to the One—Identify the drivers of each team member for maximum motivation (Inclusion)
  • Speed Productivity—Help new people and teams work faster & smarter
  • Challenge Everything—Inspire innovation through healthy discord
  • Find Focus—Build bridges across functions, cultures, and distance

Be a Better Manager by Friday: Real Skills for Inspiring Employees, Leading a Team, and Winning in Today’s Transformative Marketplace

The Dilemma: For leaders looking to drive innovation, diversity, and inclusion in their teams, many established management practices are doing more harm than good. Too many leaders are dampening their employees’ exuberance and refreshing diversity with old-school management approaches that are killing their cultures.

The Research: Adrian Gostick has been one of the most influential voices in leadership research and organizational consulting for more than two decades, but it’s his research over the last few years that’s garnering extra attention. After surveying more than 14,000 working adults in 2015-16 alone, he has found 5 principles of effective leadership that managers in the 21st Century can employ to great effect, and 5 principles that must be avoided.

The Result: In a fresh, funny and challenging keynote presentation, Gostick debunks myths such as The Smartest Person in the Room, Treating Everyone the Same is Fair, Appreciation Comes in a Paycheck, and We’ll Let You Know if You Mess Up. He teaches audiences how to lead in such a way that today’s employees will follow—including establishing a clear future vision, enhancing diversity, increasing trust levels, and providing opportunity and growth development paths.
