Marco Avila, the General Manager of Human Resources at the Maersk Central America Cluster, and his leadership team together plays a vital role in the operations of Maersk Line, a global shipping enterprise responsible for nearly 16 percent of containerized clientele through the Panama Canal. The challenge associated with being part of such a large, global entity is the requirement to align with the vision, strategies, and goals coming from Maersk headquarters in Denmark, while simultaneously responding to emerging competitive conditions in the local Central America market.
In this webinar, we will discuss how Marco and his team developed a leadership strategy to become an elite team that could effectively respond to any emergent condition and corporate expectation. To become an elite team, this group learned how to operate like a SWAT team, overcoming the following five common obstacles to leadership team effectiveness:
· Functional Team Primacy
· Lack of Unifying Common Goal
· Strategic Misalignment
· Internal Competition among Team Members
· Lack of Trust
