It doesn’t happen by accident.
Those teams you see that seem to be running on some sort of growth magic dust all have the same thing in common.
They understand, accept and deeply value one another’s natural talents, personality, interests and learning styles.
There are many teams that absolutely could achieve great things. However, they miss greatness because they never really gel as they don’t understand, and appreciate, the uniqueness of one another.
Perhaps the company has placed high expectations on reaching goals by a certain amount of time and the team is constantly trying to achieve one immediate result after another. Sometimes they achieve success but often times not.
Who has time to dig in and really learn how to work well together when there is constant pressure to hit this goal, then that goal, then another goal. Short term thinking that has shorter term impact.
There’s a better way. A much better way.
The best teams that achieve long-lasting, sustainable results are teams that know each other incredibly well. And value differences in natural wiring.
They know that one person is futuristic and a maximizer, has a high energy level, makes decisions intuitively, and is motivated by persuading others.
They know that another person has command but is drained by people interaction, has a lower energy level, makes fact-based decisions, and is motivated by helping others in unique and creative ways.
They know someone else is deliberative and a learner, gains energy from group settings, makes decisions with a balanced approach, and is motivated by creating tools and processes that are helpful to others.
This is the type of knowledge that makes the best teams gel.
This is the type of knowledge that creates fierce supporters of one another.
This is the type of knowledge that creates open communication and promotes constructive dissent, propelling organizations into the stratosphere of success with great productivity and profitability.
Are you ready to know your team incredibly well? Begin by having each person complete a suite of assessments that reveal with data their natural strengths, personality, interests and learning styles. And then use this information to develop the team into a robust powerhouse.
