A framework to explain the key things a high performing team does,
and how by focusing on these a team can consciously raise their performance.
Hawkins suggests that high performing teams do five basic things.

He called this ‘The 5Cs model of High Performing Teams’.

The 5 Capacities


Commission: Why are we here and who cares?

Clarifying: So what exactly is this team? Creating shared identity and shared purpose.

Co-creation: How are we going to work together to make this happen?

Connecting: Spreading enthusiasm and message beyond the island of the team.

Core Learning: How doe we grow and learn collectively?
