On the Key to High Performing Teams at Google


Matt Sakaguchi is talking about key outcomes from the research by Julia Rozovsky into what separated effective teams from not so effective teams at Google are.

Five attributes that separated effective teams from the rest:

1Psychological safety

People feel comfortable taking a risk or asking a question and know they will be supported by their team mates, they feel safe to share personal and “crazy” ideas


The knowledge that team mates will deliver quality outputs and meet their commitments

3Structure & clarity

The team has well defined roles and responsibilities, everyone knows what they are supposed to do and they do it


The work has personal meaning to the individual team members


The team members can see the value they bring to the greater good through their work
