What Great Senior Teams Do

Most discussions about executive team effectiveness typically focus on the ideal mix of personal characteristics or “stages” of team development that need to be accomplished before the team can be classied as high performing.

RHR took a different approach. We compared and contrasted high-performing and low-performing executive teams and then looked at what they did, how often they did it, and which indicators of organizational performance were impacted as a result.

Using RHR's STE SurveySM (Senior Team Effectiveness Survey), data was collected from 200 senior team members predominately from companies with annual revenues of $2 billion and six success factors were isolated.
