6 Success Patterns for V-Teams



What is the success pattern for leading a successful v-team? 

I asked one of my mentors, a seasoned softie for his take on what are the keys to a successful v-team. 

Here is what he had to say:

  1. you’re building a coalition — not just a vteam
  2. make sure everyone is committed … not just involved (see Turning Chickens into Pigs)
  3. get commitments and support from their leadership
  4. do an “exec” vision scope and milestone reviews
  5. give the team members the credit
  6. show up as a leader who is worth following – defend them, work for them, help them succeed — you are working with people that you may want to follow you one day
