high performance group setting revolves around the interest of the individuals involved. Do they actually want to be there? Are they interested in the subject being presented? If not, it’s probably a waste of time. If people are engaged in the experience, they learn more effectively. How do teams ensure they achieve this extreme high performance mental state? Achieving this stems from the Performance Triad. First, passion; there must be a driving factor involved that motivates the team to want to be there. Second, free will; every team member must feel they have the opportunity to make a difference and to have an influence in achieving the goal at hand. Lastly, focus. Every team member must be invested in the process and should have their ‘eye on the prize’, as we like to say.
