“Tim’s book nails the eight
characteristics of high-
performing teams. These
characteristics are about
relationships and culture,
rather than just the task at
hand.”
Is it even possible to
have a high
performing team in
the world of work?
What we’ll
cover
Task & Relationship
The three key elements

Robert R. Blake and Jane Mouton outlined in their Managerial Grid model (1964) that a
leader’s concern for task is set against their concern for people. These concerns are often
displayed as polar opposites as set out below.
The simple fact is that during your career as a leader, there will be times when the needs
of the team or the individuals far outweigh the needs of the task at hand. And there will
TASK RELATIONSHIP
The leadership balancing act
Every leader in every organisation is faced with the same balancing act. This balancing act
is the requirement of the leader to balance the needs of the task, with the needs of the
team and the individuals who comprise those teams.
Robert R. Blake and Jane Mouton outlined in their Managerial Grid model (1964) that a

• Pentland’s research confirmed that communication plays a
crucial part in team success.
• It’s the communication patterns—more than the
message—that make the difference.
• It’s the way teams communicated in informal settings
rather than in team meetings, that counts.
• He suggests that the “best predictors of productivity were
a team’s energy and engagement outside formal
meetings.”
• According to Pentland’s research, energy and engagement
accounted for a third of the variation in dollar terms of
team productivity.
• Does an HPT promote
better communication
between team members
or does better
communication build
high performance?
Why do
patterns of
communication
matter so
much?
It seems almost absurd that how we communicate
could be so much more important to success than
what we communicate.
Five key communication
factors in team
achievement
1. Everyone in high-performing teams contributes
equally in their casual interactions. One or two
team members don’t monopolize conversations.
2. Meaningful conversations occur in face-to-face
encounters with vibrance and energy.
3. Team members communicate with one another
without the need for the team leader to be
present.
4. They engage in more one-on-one conversations
with each other, than usual.
5. Team members are willing to network beyond the
team and bring back what they’ve learned to the
team for the its benefit.
The three key elements
• energy is defined as the
frequency & value of
conversations between team
members.
• engagement Engagement is the
distribution of energy amongst
team members.
• exploration involves
communication patterns beyond
the team environment
