Howard M Guttman on Building High Performance Teams

May 2009 - By Dr. Nagendra V Chowdary

A great team is one on which every player is a leader. What makes such a team ‘great’ is that it is riveted on business results – not just on achieving the goals it has been given, but on continually raising the bar. A great team is anti-status quo.
—Howard M Guttman
