In Blair Singer's book The ABC's of Building a Business Team That Wins Singer speaks of three keys that every team needs to aspire to greatness.

They are as follows:

  1. Pressure builds great teams in all arenas.  Embrace it and don't run from it.
  2. Find constructive ways to release stored emotion so that the evolutionary process can proceed - exercise, sports, discussion, whatever works.
  3. Use a code of honor to hold the team together under pressure.  More than ever, if you stick by it in the heat, you will emerge more powerful, with better results and with a sense of incredible pride and accomplishment.
Here is a drill that you can do with your team to help them release stored emotion and bond simultaneously:

Describe moments of high pressure and how they were handled - well or not so well.

How could they have been handled better knowing what you know now?

Make sure that you encourage participation by all and are open to every idea.

 Once you have incorporated the three keys above into an automated system you will be well on your way to massive success.

If you would like to know more about strengthening your team with a code of honor please refer to Singers book The ABC's of Building a Business Team That Wins.
