Team Success

Integrate Diversity to Increase Collaboration!

The most successful teams welcome and integrate a diversity of perspectives. In fact, this is the only way to effectively innovate and problem solve.

When all perspective are welcomed, positional and situational leaders emerge at every level. Opposing viewpoints are welcomed and dialogue is embraced with respect and rigorous dissection. In this environment, problems are discovered before they become crises and solutions are presented for resolution. There is an infectious, positive energy that directly impacts a robust bottom line

Solutions

Team Think! For Teams, Boards, Systems and Organizations

Team Think is a collaborative journey of chaos, confusion, disruption, innovation, reward and fulfillment. It’s healthy and productive. In contrast, Group Think presents itself as a team with little disagreement and often silent dissension and leads to a breakdown in problem solving.  Recognize any of these?

  • Team silos that don’t (or won’t) collaborate with one another?
  • Unproductive team meetings limited participation?  and ideas?
  • A void in innovation and problem solving? No one challenging the status quo?
  • Knowledge hoarding instead of knowledge sharing?
  • No interest in perspective shifting to see the problem through someone else’s viewpoint?

If any of the above made you stop and think…Team Think might just be the right solution for you! Embrace the diversity of ideas and leverage them to maximize results.

  • Is your company STUCK in the non-innovation zone?  Are you suffering because of it?

Stay Strong! Show Your Emotions

In this time of chronic uncertainty, it can be a real struggle to know how to stay strong, carry on – and to show (or not to show) your emotions. Use emotional engagement and emotional expression to create stronger teams and problem solving.

Welcome the Stranger: Close to You

Leadership is the practice of learning and adapting, rather than executing our expertise. It requires welcoming the Stranger as we would welcome guests to our table. Humility and vulnerability replaces polarization as we collectively move things forward. This is our call to action in COVID-19, and often the next steps is dangling right in front of our face.

Reality Testing: An Anchor in the Storm
