Team 2.0

When is the last time you “upgraded your team?” We’re not talking swapping people out, we’re talking about evaluating and updating the way that you work together as a team.  

  1. Assess – While it’s great to setup a team for success from the outset, there’s no reason you can’t periodically evaluate what’s going on and make a collective decision to improve. Here are some areas/key questions to use to assess your team’s progress:
    • PURPOSE – Everyone is clear on our collective purpose and the role he or she plays in achieving it (Y/N)
    • COMMUNICATION – We have a common language/understanding that enables us to communicate effectively (Y/N)
    • TRUST – We trust each other to follow through, to be fully present and share openly (Y/N)
    • SAFETY – We can take risks on this team without feeling insecure or embarrassed (Y/N)
    • DECISIONS – We make decisions efficiently and effectively, then capture and communicate them with anyone who is impacted(Y/N)
    • SCOPE – We know what is in and what is out of our focused area of responsibility (Y/N)
    • CULTURE – We have agreed on the way we talk, behave, and interact with each other (Y/N)
    • (what else would you add to the list?) 
  1. Act – Once you’ve assessed your team, have a conversation about the actions you will take to make change. You can’t move from Team 1.0 to Team 2.0 without action. Have a collective decision about what will deliver the greatest benefit to the team, and make it happen.
  2. Accelerate – There is a psychological principle that what you focus on flourishes or improves. Take time with your team to evaluate, agree on changes and then act. This “Team Tune-Up” will accelerate your performance and increase team member engagement.
