Inspiring Leadership - The Carrot or The Stick 2004High performing teams can achieve outstanding results and make some of the most rewarding environments for people to work in. Such teams are also central to most organisation's strategy and way of working. Sometimes, teams will form quickly around a clear purpose and a talented group of individuals, focussed around a capable leader.  Often, however, forming a team can be accelerated and made more effective by creating the opportunity for the team to really understand why it exists, who is in the team and how they are going to work together. NASA would not consider sending one of it's manned space missions into orbit without first sending the crew on a team development programme. Yet many organisations take similar risks without this preparation.
