6 Steps to Sustainable Teams: Growing the Sphere of Influence | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it
In order to consistently deliver influential and successful products, the supervisor must focus on establishing a strong foundation or “safety zone” where trust and safety are nurtured ...
Shailja Kaushik's curator insight, January 9, 2013 1:49 AM

Sphere of influence refers to the conceptual system or people over which an individual has an influence. This article has very nicely applied this concept for building sustainableand high performing teams. According to this, groups in the office and unit/office forms a safety zone for the team members. As their ability to overcome fear and take more risks increase, their sphere of influence will widen to influence division, organization and outside environment. Based on strengths and job responsibilities, some staff members will be consistently expanding the team’s sphere of influence by working outside the safety zone while others will spend most of their time and efforts inside the safety zone. Key qualities identified that assist in increasing the sphere of influence are:

  • Forgiveness and patience
  • Trust and safety
  • Eliminating the negative
  • Minimizing conflict
  • Maintaining harmony
