Ron - I believe in large part that leaders must deliberately and consistently seek to nurture the people and associated culture. I'm a huge fan of the commericial philosophy to take care of people, products, and profits - in that order. In Government, we can say "people, service, resources" - the latter to refer to prudent use of taxpayor money. Those leaders who are most outstanding will find that the team continues to function a a high state because the disciplines continue, but the new leader must also adopt the philosophy. Fortunately, many in Government are passonate about their mission, but when a leader fails to nuture the health of relationships, the speed of work slows dramaticlaly if relationships among members begins to falter.
