order for an organization to have high-functioning self-managed teams, its leader(s) must be committed to the strategies necessary to develop these teams. In addition to the development process, leaders must also establish strategies to motivate and sustain the effort of teams over time, to maintain their productivity and relevance.

As recent history has shown, tomorrowâ€™s challenges will certainly be very different from todayâ€™s. In this assignment you will discuss how leadership can motivate and encourage a team to excel.
