If running sprints is your measure for high team performance, you may be focused on the short term. If, however, you strategically engage in sprints, you may be well adjusted for a long-term approach.
Teams Run as a Pack
A team that is performing with high octane fuel may not presently appear ahead of the competition, however, they are prepared and positioned to run over the long term. To eventually outrun the competition, your team must run as a pack. A pack isn’t defined as a group that eliminates external forces and other teams, it is defined by the cohesive nature in which the group operates to achieve well defined collective goals.
