Building a Loyalist Team for High-Performance

Join us this Thursday at 5pm ET for the Future-Proof Workplace show!

The future-proof workplace requires high-performing teams. In nearly every organization large or small – business, government, non-profit, sports – work gets done by teams, and each team breaks down or succeeds in specific, identifiable and replicable ways. This week, we will discuss what it means to be a Loyalist team. This kind of team has members who ensure each other’s success as they work to ensure their own, operate with absolute candor, and value loyalty and authenticity to deliver results, create a healthy work environment, and help companies succeed.

Join us as we interview Abby Curnow-Chavez and Rebecca Teasdale, two of the four authors of the book The Loyalist Team: How Trust, Candor, and Authenticity Create Great Organizations. This book was written by the principles of The Trispective Group – Linda Adams, Abby Curnow-Chavez, Audrey Epstein, Rebecca Teasdale (with Jody Berger) introduce tools that allow anyone to get to the heart of why teams break down, identify the weaknesses in their own team, and build a Loyalist Team. The four authors have led the human resources, talent management, leadership development, and organizational effectiveness functions of multiple Fortune 500 companies like Ford Motor Company, PepsiCo, Newmont Mining and Level 3 Communications.
