Powerful teams are smarter and more agile than any
individual and can continually elevate your organization to higher and
higher levels of success. Todays reality is that most middle-sized
and almost all large organizations are run by management teams. Most teams
have a formal leader, but a team will not be successful if that formal
leader carries the sole responsibility for ensuring that the team reaches
its goals. The following abilities are vital for team development.
Each team member assumes personal responsibility for successful
meetings, best decisions and the ultimate success of the organization.
Each individual takes responsibility for the team successfully meeting
goals and objectives and doing so in a positive manner.
Teams work when every member is enthusiastic,
even passionate, about the organizations good. Teams find success
when they align their differing goals in order to pursue a common purpose.
Underlying a shared vision are the common values practiced by the members
of your team.
Alignment, common purpose, shared values
are all determined by the ability of team members to clearly define their
personal viewpoint. Team members balance advocacy with inquiry.
Todays complex issues require intelligence beyond that of
any individual. Group intelligence, the opposite of group think, produces
superior solutions and new levels of coordinated action. Participative
leaders comfortably express their personal values and viewpoints and are
genuinely curious about diverse perspectives. Honest respectful communication
among diverse individuals creates group intelligence.
