Session overview

High Performance Cultures and High Performing Teams don’t just outperform their competition – they demolish them. When these groups get together, they’re able to consistently outperform their competitors time and time again.

The world of business has been comparatively slow to understand this but the tide is starting to turn. Netflix are the stand-out example. They have been clear about who they’re looking for and the sort of person that will fit with their culture. It is unsurprising that their revenue grew at an average rate of 48% last year – culture delivers performance.

In this webinar, we will cover the principles behind identifying and selecting the ‘right people’ - why attitude and mindset are more important than skills and experience. We will also cover how you nurture a high performing team so that you start to create a culture of continuous improvement that has a real impact on the success of your business.
