Last week, I helped 250 leaders kick off the new year and inspire them to lead the changes their organization will need to win. I had the last spot on the agenda, right before the big close by the CEO. I decided to use it to bring all the messages of the event down to […]

What percentage of the information you share daily is delivered as one-way messages that you transmit without checking how the message lands? I asked this of an audience recently and most of the people in the room answered 80 percent or higher. How would you answer? It’s a major problem if you’re only communicating to […]

When we get invited to help a team become high performing, occasionally, there is a team member who doesn’t want to participate in the process. It all starts innocuously; the team leader starts by inviting the person to participate and gets in response, “yes, but too busy right now.” The requests slowly escalate until they […]

Pick up your pen and write your name. Easy-peasy, right? Now, put your pen in your other hand and write your name again. What was your reaction to my instructions? How did it feel as you tried to scratch out something legible? I did this exercise yesterday with a group who are leading a major […]

I’ll share some of those ideas on the blog in the near future. One audience member was undeterred by […]

  In my previous post, I talked about the blight of teams today: the overpowering compulsion to go fast. I’m not delusional and arguing for a return to the leisurely pace of the good old days. I’m just worried that teams that try to go fast actually go slowly. The problem lies in the difference […]

  I am becoming increasingly convinced that the ability to have conflict effectively is the holy grail of team effectiveness. I spend day after day helping team members understand the benefits of conflict, defining the nature of conflict required, and building the skills to have conflict effectively. Some get it. Others stare back at me […]

  Frequently, I watch teams trying to solve an issue that seems straight forward while observing that their behavior says it’s anything but.  I see people interrupting, I hear yelling, I notice tears welling up.  Then I know that it’s not an intellectual debate, it’s an emotional conflict that’s at the heart of the issue.

“But that’s how we’ve always done it around here!” Heard that before? Have you been on the receiving end of this telltale sign that your new ideas are being resisted and that your teammates are retrenching into what is familiar and known? I received an email from someone asking me for help with the right […]
