Accelerate your Team’s Development: Create Meaningful Norms.
My colleagues from the McLelland Center at Hay Group, Richard Hackman at Harvard, and I (then faculty at Dartmouth) spent a couple of years studying 127 senior leadership teams from organizations all over the world. These teams led complex enterprises, from massive oil and gas companies to consumer goods firms, to major banks, government agencies, food services businesses, and many more.
For the last couple of weeks our Australian team was spotlighted for all the wrong reasons. It has become a national point of shame that two of our team members have been caught trying to give themselves an edge in a manner that breaks the rules of fairness.
