In today’s complex environment, individual talent alone is insufficient to succeed. Competitive advantage be must drawn from collective capability of teams and groups. Key to that growth is leveraging the influence of the senior leadership team(s) and/or change leaders.
There are no shortcuts to building team capability. It’s all about who we are, what motivates us, understanding each other and how we do things. Sounds easy, right?
We all know that leveraging high performing teams and groups requires trust and mutual respect. If they lack the systems, disciplines and structures to achieve, however, frustration and dysfunction can set in and negatively impact productivity, organisational culture and engagement.
Leaders who are able to influence behavioural shifts in their employees and leverage the potential of teams are able to effectively promote a positive organisational culture, implement transformative change, keep employees engaged and meet strategic business goals.
Is this even possible? Yes!
It starts with each individual’s awareness and personal mastery, then learning about each other respectfully while being accountable for the job they are contracted to do and the outcomes for which they are responsible.
