There IS an I in Team — It’s You

Most business people have heard, "There's no I in team;" however, when you are the leader, the team can ultimately be a reflection of you. Highly effective teams are typically managed well, while long-term underperforming teams can often have poor leadership at the helm.

Even though Patrick Lencioni asserts that "all teams are potentially dysfunctional," largely because they are comprised of fallible, imperfect human beings. It is up to the leader to ensure that trust is maintained despite difficulties, disagreements and debate. The methods used to manage through the trouble times are as individual as you are.

The Waiting Game

The business world is still waiting for clarity, for certainty and for signs of sustained economic growth.

As the presidential campaign politicizes any debate about whether investment or some level or badly needed financial discipline makes the most sense for the American people, millions of Americans remain jobless and many employers remain stuck in the "idle" position.


Kellogg School Professor Mohanbir Sawhney, recognized among the most influential global business voices, elaborated in this ExecuNet exclusive video interview at the 2012 World Innovation Forum on his recognition that there may be "strange new people entering your marketplace" and what these new entrants into a variety of global markets means for established companies and leaders.


Every year for the last two decades, ExecuNet has surveyed executives, search firm professionals and human resource leaders to get their perspectives on the marketplace, and, as a result, we produce our annual Executive Job Market Intelligence Report.

Companion to the report, is a special webinar for ExecuNet members conducted by President Mark Anderson, where he dissects and provides deeper storylines around some of the data, helping executives sharpen their next career moves.

Of course we think the insight is great, but we always survey attendees about the value of our content, so we’ll let them tell you what you can expect from the webinar:


ExecuNet's exclusive Recruiter Confidence Index was flat from June to July and still below 40 percent. What this means to you is recruiters are not seeing a broad based improvement in the overall executive employment market for the near-term. Since 40 percent are confident or very confident — it seems there are pockets for opportunity, but not across the board. When the index climbs over 50 percent is an indicator or a more broad-based improvement in the executive hiring market.


Finding new ways to do business is always a challenge, but for success in an ever-changing world, business leaders today must be willing to try new things and remain extremely flexible. Read what some of the world's greatest innovators had to say in this ExecuNet exclusive.
