ABSTRACT
This article highlights the characteristics of leaders helping them to work in a team. When business units function as separate organizations, the leaders tend to operate with a win-lose mindset. They may maximize business unit performance, even if it results in unhealthy competition and reduces the company's economic value. Costs are usually higher because of duplicated services and lack of economies of scale. When teammates assume ulterior motives in one another, then communications, decisions, and execution suffer. Trust is the foundation of a healthy team. This starts by assuming that team members also want what they think is best for the organization.
