Less Drama, More Productivity: How to Crack the Code to Building High Performance Teams

Your company’s performance is largely a function of how well the teams within it work together. Teams in your company exist to produce results, in a sustainable way, yet a team is far more than a group of individuals working together. A team is a living system, governed by a wide array of factors, beyond the talents and motivations of its individual members. Fortunately, when teams and their leaders understand this, they can follow a process to improve their performance by an average of 20%. What would a 20%  improvement in team performance mean to your company?


  • Learn a comprehensive model of Team Effectiveness and how to measure your team against it 
  • Understand the role and importance of Team Leadership
  • Learn practical strategies to develop your team’s ability to produce results in a sustainable way, including while leading teams virtually

    About the speaker:

    Mike Caracalas

    Mike Caracalas is hired by senior executives who are frustrated by all the drama that comes with leading people. What those executives want are high performing teams that are productive and focused on growing the business. Mike works with individual executives to raise their leadership impact and with executive teams to eliminate dysfunction, generate sustainable results, and grow the business. He also trains managers and executives to use coaching skills in their daily work.

    For the first 18 years of his career, Mike worked internally for organizations such as Mount Sinai Medical Center, NASA, Sun Microsystems, and Yum Brands (Pizza Hut) in the fields of Leadership Development and HR. For the past 9 years, Mike has built an independent Executive Coaching practice, serving senior level executives across a wide range of industries.

    Mike’s approach with leaders is to understand their goals, assess their personal impact within the organization, and guide them to implement strategies and actions intended to raise their effectiveness, get more career satisfaction, and grow the business. Every leader is unique and there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. Growth as a leader starts within the person, radiates out to how they interact with others, and manifests as tangible change in the world around them.

    Education and Certifications

    Mike attended the University of California, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Human Information Processing, and went on to receive his Master’s degree in Organizational Psychology from Columbia University, with emphasis in OD and Change Consultation. Mike is credentialed by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), and is the past-President of the International Coaching Federation, North Texas chapter. He is trained and certified in the Co-Active model of coaching (CPCC) and is also a Certified Team Performance Coach (CTPC), using the Team Diagnostic Assessment from Team Coaching International.
