Find A Session
In 2004, the USA Olympic Men’s Basketball team was shocked and humiliated, barely winning the bronze metal. The team was comprised of top NBA players so skills and talent were not the issue. In organizations of all kinds, we make great efforts to hire the best into our teams, assuming that top talent will bring top results, later to often wonder “What went wrong?” Extraordinary teams are positioned for robust and sustainable success, able to adapt and bounce back from setbacks, operate seamlessly even when navigating new territory, and meet new challenges with enthusiasm. With a framework grounded in the latest findings in neuroscience, we will use the profound example of a leader who applied these strategies to shape such a team, and we will discuss what other leaders can do to shape their own extraordinary teams.
