After 23 years as a corporate executive developing a reputation for building successful teams, Douglas innovated and trademarked the concept of Team Quotient (TQ), a measurement of the traits that lead to team success. He is a thought leader in the area of team transformation and works with leaders to develop their own High TQ Teams.

In today’s conversation we explore his new book Team Quotient: How to Build High Performance Leadership Teams that WIN Every Time wherein he reveals best practices on how to measure, track, and diagnose the state of any team in any business as well as its progress.
Douglas shares the 10 factors required to be a high performing team, and explains the importance and impact of shifting from the commonly held silo mentality to a team first mentality. We also discuss how to handle internal attrition that often occurs during the 1-3 year transformation of a team, and how to maintain motivation throughout the process.
Whether you are a team of one, or lead a team of 10,000, Douglas will bring to light essential elements for your success.
