In every organization, there will definitely be teams of people working together. In your company, it could be your department working with one another, your immediate team with a team supervised by a colleague or even teams that are cross-functional.
Regardless of the team composition, there is always a need to lead them to high performance.

I have a solution to the above issues and this is what makes me very excited about what I am doing.

This model encompasses the 5 proven strategies top leaders used to lead their team. They are mainly:
