Impact of Team Performance - Survey Report
The ThinkWise Impact of Team Performance Survey collected the thoughts of more than 100 senior executives from organizations across America who shared their experience of building high-performing teams and the overall impact teams have on a company’s success.
We asked leaders about the performance realities of their teams, to define the characteristics of high-performing teams and to provide insights into how their teams are in fact performing. Our team aggregated and analyzed the leadership insights. Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect to see:
