This book is about building the executive team. Much has been written about teams. Project teams, process improvement teams, functional organizational teams and self-directed work teams are several of the more common types of teams about which a great deal of thought and attention has been paid. But the executive team poses some unique requirements and challenges for several reasons. First, the executives of an organization hold a collective set of responsibilities that is exclusively their own. They are the group in whose hands the future success of the organization rests. It is from their collective vision and direction that the long-term strategic direction and success of the organization will flow. The second reason is more subtle, and perhaps more dangerous. It is generally assumed that by the time a group of individuals reaches the executive level of an organization they have developed and honed their management and leadership skills. These skills would include those of serving on a wide variety of teams, working in a team environment, and functioning as the leaders of their own teams. Unfortunately, the reverse is more typically the case. In more than 200 years of collective consulting experience with hundreds of organizations across the globe, it has been a rare occasion in which we have found an executive group that functions as a high-performance team. More typically, the executive group consists of a number of fiercely independent individuals who enjoy competing with everyone, including each other. Power struggles are common, and separate fiefdoms that divide the organization according to its functional structure are the more common manifestations of executive "teams." As a consequence, guidelines for the formation and performance of team behavior among top management are sorely needed. This book hopes to be that guide.
