Humans are at heart an inherently herd animal, and we have learnt over time that collective effort always surpasses individual endeavor. This does not mean, however that we easily form cohesive and successful teams.

Leaders are often at odds at how they should or even could go about building their team. Leaders often fail to understand the unconscious rules that underpin successful teams, and founder in their attempts to create the team culture that best enables individual contribution and united effort.

When working with teams we draw upon centuries of wisdom concerning teams - lessons that the military have long understood and utilised, and that are easily grasped and employed, by any team, at any level.
