Collaborative Teams

 

Team Collaboration

Open to me, so that I may open
Provide me your inspiration
So that I might see mine

Rumi

Poor or average performing teams cost organizations billions every year and this doesn’t have to be the case. What makes the difference between a poor and high performing team is successful collaboration?

For teams to be consistently high performing, it’s important that there is a culture of collaboration within the organization.  This can take time, energy and money to create but it ultimately pays off in terms of ROI.  It’s also important that the organization’s leadership is on board and that the leaders themselves are role models of collaboration.

Collaboration literally means ‘to work together’. You can think of collaborative teams along two dimensions: relationship and task. Whether leading or participating in a team you need the ability to balance these two factors, for your teams to be able to collaborate effectively and achieve high performance. Another way to think of this is being able to balance your Social & Emotional Intelligence skills with your Project Management skills. Ultimately delivering results today increasingly means leading across organisational boundaries and getting the best from people who may not share your language, beliefs or culture, but whose skills you rely on.

Adaptive Leadership

Business_Team (5)

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.
Willing is not enough; we must do.

Goethe

The importance of leadership is well understood and yet at the same time great leadership can be a difficult thing to pin down and understand. You know a great leader when you’re working for one, but even great leaders can have a hard time explaining the specifics of what they do that makes their leadership so effective. Great leadership is dynamic; it melds unique skills within a specific context into an integrated whole.

To identify the key leadership capabilities that are best suited for you and your organisation to develop requires an understanding of the context you operate within, your specific goals and objectives and how that context is changing over time.

Adaptive leadership takes a specific combination of skills, perspective and intention that focuses on excellence and the development of dynamic, agile leaders who are incredibly effective in any environment.
