With a weekend of football grand finals ahead, it’s a great time to discuss the secrets of teams, mindset and performance.
Nowadays it’s almost impossible to avoid being a member of a team. If you’re not on an official team at work, chances are you function within one, one way or another.
Today’s teams are different from the teams of the past: They’re far more diverse, dispersed, digital, and dynamic (with frequent changes in membership). But while teams face new hurdles, their success still hinges on a core set of fundamentals for group collaboration.
- a compelling direction
- a strong structure
- a supportive context.
In fact, today those 3 requirements demand more attention than ever. But modern teams require a 4th critical condition: a shared or innovative mindset.
We’ve been exploring Innovation Mindset and what makes teams successful in today’s highly diverse and digitally social world. As a community, we’ve all shared valuable insights and experience. Results show that an innovative mindset significantly improves performance across all types of teams – from service to project teams, leadership to sales teams. The key to improved team performance is improved efficiency and effectiveness of solutioning techniques to solve problems and create opportunities.
If you’re looking to kick goals through higher performing teams, then jump on board as we continue to explore the key factors that make up a successful team. Our goal is to establish the principles, roles, behaviours and tools that deliver high performing teams with proven solutions.
