Perhaps the best predictor of team success is its clarity of purpose and the team’s commitment to achieving it. To support that purpose, a team needs a process that moves smoothly from vision and mission to goals and tasks in order to achieve the desired outcomes. The foundation of both purpose and process is leadership.
You have been asked by organizational leadership to develop a PowerPoint presentation for department managers on building leadership and trust in collaborative teams.

Be sure your references are formatted according to APA guidelines.
