What you should know about developing smarter teams
The difference that makes the difference
Effective teams have key things in common – at least four key imperatives. Top organizations have clear-cut objectives, they have their systems and processes aligned with those objectives, their members are engaged, and they have high levels of trust.
The organizations that have these four things in common are innovative, they are productive, and they seem to be doing well. Those that don’t have these essential behaviors aren’t doing that great – people are just showing up.
The difference between having and not having these four imperatives in your organization is a mindset and paradigm shift that comes from the inside.
– Dr. Stephen R. Covey
These essentials represent a core set of ideals that make the difference in whether a team is effective at reaching its goals, or if it seems to never quite get there – no matter how many resources are thrown at it.
Competencies for today’s worker
A handful of highly evolved organizations have figured out that more training, more information, and even more technology aren’t yielding the desired results in their organization.
Traditional lectures, workshops, online courses, and other solely cognitive activities aren’t helping workers who are already dealing with information overload.
Instead, these workers need a new, transformational paradigm that relies on experience, not mere knowledge.
Organizations need employees who can navigate in chaos, complexity, volatility, and uncertainty.
One way we help organizations do just this is to help its employees manage stress more effectively.
When this happens, it allows for behavioral changes that promote new thinking—thinking that enables them to readily grasp and exercise the qualities the organization values and needs to thrive. It results in cohesive high performance not unlike a flock of birds or school of fish who work in concert as one body to achieve extraordinary results using:
Today’s organizations require new competencies and new thinking to succeed.
When companies engage us, we identify through a confidential and anonymous survey how the organization or team ranks on several key factors that the research has shown is significant in developing a better working team.
After getting the results of this survey we will explore together how to make your team more cohesive and adaptable, resulting in an increase in productivity and bottom line results.
