Question: In your column in the June 26 issue of BizTimes Milwaukee you shared 12 keys to an effective team. Could you write about how to act on these?
Answer: At the outset, let me be clear on one thing: Teams do not just happen. The organizations that are the best at deploying teams pursue the endeavor with intention and effort. Time and resources are devoted to cultivating trust, collaboration, and interdependency. Leaders learn how to lead teams, not just the individuals that comprise them. A measurement framework that incorporates both individual and collective metrics is utilized.
