The Essence of Successful Executive Teams

Aad Boot interviewed at a wooden table
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure and honor to be interviewed by John Mattone as part of their Expert Interview program.

John Mattone is one of the world’s leading authorities on leadership, talent and culture, and the author of seven books. He is currently preparing his next release, Cultural Transformations: Lessons of Leadership & Corporate Reinvention from the C-Suite Elite (Wiley, 2016).

John asked me if I would be willing to share some of my ideas and thoughts on Creating Executive and Leadership Team Alignment: Why is alignment so important to the success of an executive team? What are the most common signs that a team is not aligned? What are the biggest culprits for leadership teams failing to align?

When teams have strong alignment, they are able to respond faster, more effectively, with more confidence and with better results.
