As CPR continues its quest to stomp out toxic work culture, it is essential to highlight the toxicity and spend time on how a leader can produce high-performing teams. The prior posts spotlighted negative behaviors to stomp out poor decorum. As a leader, you must understand that the longer it takes to stomp out antagonistic workplace shenanigans, it transmits the message of your organization's culture. In the upcoming weeks, CPR will explore how a leader motivates employees into cohesive and High-Performance teams. Today we will begin with a brief introduction from Organization Culture magazine.

"A leader knows the importance of cultivating High-Performance teams. This skill is intentional; it must be nurtured and facilitated. They require continuous support and guidance from an able leader who can motivate the team members to exceed expectations and continuously achieve challenging results. For such teams to prosper and deliver the intended goals, the members of the teams should be made to feel that their presence and contributions are valued and acknowledged and will be rewarded appropriately. The members should perceive that they are treated more than just employees by their management and that they can expect due justice for their contributions at work."
