Connected teams are high performance teams. They are defined as teams that achieve superior results and sustain their success over time. They are connected through their Team P.O.V.© (point of view) – a shared definition of their purpose, vision and values. The Team P.O.V.© guides and drives their individual and collective decisions, actions, and behavior as they work to achieve superior results. The Team P.O.V.© is shaped by the prior experiences, competencies, and the values of team members and the team leader, the culture and the context in which the team operates, and their beliefs about teaming and teamwork.
