Teams are an essential method of organizing work in business.
How well these teams function will affect organizational capability and results.

A compelling purpose is a shared aspiration or goal that capture the hearts, minds and energy of every person on the team.

To build a one-team environment leaders must communicate this compelling purpose as well as develop trusting relationships and supportive mechanisms.

A one-team environment has a greater chance of succeeding where honest and open conversations thrive.

  • Creating safe spaces to work/grow.
  • Getting good at proven behavioral norms: balanced conversations (equal talk time) and interpersonal awareness- sensing how others feel from expressions, tone of voice, etc.
