The Best TEAM Wins: The 5 Disciplines of Today’s Most Effective Team Leaders

Most employees’ days are now spent working collaboratively, but still 96% of executives cite poor teamwork as the main source of workplace failures in their organizations. It might be the most-pressing question organizations must address: How can managers lead their teams to improved performance given the volatility and challenges we face today.


Based on an 850,000-person study of the most profitable, innovative work teams, New York Times bestselling authors Adrian Gostick & Chester Elton introduce audiences to the new science of teamwork—helping leaders deal with the increased speed of change in business, global and remote employees, the rise of the Millennials, the need to work more cross-functionally across departments, and more.


Gostick & Elton’s research has discovered a set of leadership disciplines that make the biggest difference in building today’s best teams.


Key Takeaways:

  • Manage to the One—Identify the drivers of each team member for maximum engagement
  • Speed Productivity—Help new people and teams work faster & smarter
  • Challenge Everything—Inspire greater innovation through healthy debate
  • Focus on Customers—Build bridges across functions, cultures, and distance
    Designed for senior leaders and managers (although often tailored to include all employees), Adrian Gostick & Chester Elton have presented The Best Team Wins to corporate audiences and association conferences worldwide.


“I don’t think I have ever seen a leadership or engagement presentation as clear and compelling. You provided not only the ‘what’ and ‘why’ but the ‘how to’ lead and manage to the one. Your presentation will go a very long way in helping us build a more aligned and engaged team of teams“–VP, Lockheed Martin
