Q4, 2021 ISSUE OUT NOW

Business is changing. As the challenges, threats – and opportunities – facing organizations are shifting, so too are organizations’ sources of resilience and strength. More than ever before, organizations stand or fall on the success or failures of their teams. It’s time for leaders to refocus on how they lead those teams.

In this issue’s Focus, we look at the central importance of teams in how organizations manage risk in today’s economy. We examine one of leadership’s most critical new roles: that of team coach, with a particular responsibility for developing team members. With hybrid and remote working putting a premium on electronic communication, we’ve lost the non-verbal cues provided by physical body language – so we set out the new rules for digital body language. And we reflect on what so many organizations learned about teamwork during the pandemic, and how they can create the high-performing teams needed today and in the future.
