Updated: May 1
Organizations aren't getting the performance they need from their teams. That's the message we hear
from many of our clients wrestling with complex challenges ranging from strategic planning to change management. Often, the fault doesn't lie with the team members—rather, it rests with leaders who fail to effectively tap diverse work styles and perspectives—even at the senior-most levels.
To help leaders claim this lost value, Deloitte has created a system called Business Chemistry that identifies four primary work styles and related strategies for accomplishing shared goals. Every team is a mix of these personality types. This Harvard Business Review magazine article "The New Science of Teamwork" (PDF) will help you learn how to meld different work styles and manage your team (and yourself) better.
