How do successful people lead high-performing teams?

Watch Professor S Randall Peterson talk exclusively to leading figures from the world of business and sport.

We know from research the benefits of diversity on the bottom line and that different perspectives often lead to better results. Yet many organisations fall short on supporting the kind of teamwork required to keep pace with a changing, global and digital world. 

What are the tools needed to encourage collaboration? How can leaders draw out diversity of thought? Is it possible to motivate a team you inherit? What are the barriers to building a team from scratch? 

Professor Randall S Peterson, Academic Director of the Leadership Institute, catches up with Robert MacLeod, CEO of Johnson Matthey (recently named the top chemicals business in Britain’s Most Admired Companies 2016) and Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE, Founder and Chairman of Cobra Beer. We also gain insights from Carol White, Co-Founder of Premier Model Management, and Paul McGinley, Europe Captain for the 2014 Ryder Cup.

"Leaders tasked with building teams need a variety of strengths," says Professor Peterson. “They need to ensure they can delegate, encourage initiative and, finally, be proud of their achievements.”
