Building a world class high performance team around a new market model

(Excerpt from Book “Team Quotient: How to Build High Performance Teams and Win Every Time” by Douglas Gerber)

GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) China was faced with rebuilding its pharmaceutical leadership team (CPLT) from scratch, and completely transforming the team processes while implementing a new market model. They accomplished this in four stages over two years:

The team enjoyed lots of friendly banter and got along well. Team members ha...

We conducted a High Performance Team development program for the Singapore office of one of the top-five global advertising firms.
