We got talking about expectations in a session I was facilitating last week. The conversation was like a giant projective test; quickly exposing the participants’ core ideologies about people, and relationships, and trust. Some of the people around the table talked about the power of the self-fulfilling prophecy and how setting lofty goals can inspire […]

At least once a day I hear someone talk about the importance of balance. Balance is the elusive state of having two or more things in the right proportion or the right emphasis, amount, or weight. CEO’s talk about balancing revenue, cost, and customer satisfaction. Managers talk about balancing the tough messages that create accountability […]

Many of the team members I’m working with right now feel caught between two opposing forces. On the one hand, they’re living in matrix structures that require tightly aligned team behavior and interdependence. On the other hand, they feel the weight of the expectations for personal accountability and speed of execution, which are inadvertently driving […]

But like every form of communication between two people, conflict includes massive gaps in information that are filled with assumptions, interpretations, and biases. When the […]

  I wanted to be the first to tell you that I am quitting my job in team effectiveness. I’m going back to keynote speaking, strategy facilitation, leadership development…I’m not sure yet, but anything other than working with teams. Here’s why.
