Alternatively it may be a regional or country team. TQ applies includes leadership teams in companies of all sizes, from large corporates to SME’s.

Absolutely, we have witnessed teams with major challenges such of lack of trust, conflicts, poor results etc. move to High Performance. With the right intention and consistent effort over time any team can become a High TQ team.




Does a team need to commit to the full HPLT 2-Step Journey or can it start with a few areas?


The team can choose between a comprehensive turbocharged approach or a slower incremental approach. In other words, the team can commit to the HPLT 2-Step Journey upfront, or start with the most pressing needs, such as Vision or Trust to start, adding areas over time. Whichever approach is taken, the team will derive benefit.
