The authors investigated the relationship between leadership team values and organizational behaviour, form a theoretical point of view. Due to the fact that we live in an era of continuous change, in which the technology surprises us every day, which passes more and wherever we want it or not, we must respond to these fluctuations. For people to survive, they have to adapt to the circumstances and events around them. If they seek to evolve and of course develop, the human species must make major changes and face all kinds of attempts. It's not just that changes are taking place at an increasingly rapid pace. The future itself no longer has the same conception as in the past. Drucker states that "All institutions exist and operate in two periods of time: today and tomorrow. The future is preparing today and is often irrevocable. That is why managers have to organize both the present and the future. In times of change, managers do not have to imagine that the future is a continuation of the present. On the contrary, they have to turn to change and change, both as an opportunity and as a threat." Building a high performing, values-driven team that utilizes the strengths of its members requires commitment and an ongoing process of values management that becomes deeply ingrained into the ethos of the team. In this article we will analyse what is not working. We provide you with an overview of what drives your leaders, how they work together, and what they want to build on or develop for the future.
