The Wisdom of Teams

Creating the High Performance Organization

Douglas Smith and Jon Katzenbach

Katzenbach and Smith uncover the dynamics of success and failure by analyzing the experiences of teams from football teams to company boards. The Wisdom of Teams helps us to understand that a team is not simply a group of people and highlights what real team performance means.


In our workshops, we let the team rate their performance using the team performance curve so they can understand where they stand now, and where they need to go next. Katzenbach and Smith discuss how we can build and manage teams to foster their unique potential and achieve peak performance.
