How important is trust in your organization? Without trust, you have nothing. It is the foundation upon which all relationships are built. When trust is present, everything is easier.

Doing a lot of research on Trust and its importance for my latest project, Leading Past the Status Quo, an internet radio show.  Here is a resource I will be using this week.  Thanks to Susan M. Heathfield (@heathereagar)

 

From the article:

 

Thinking about trust as made up of the interaction and existence of these three components makestrust¬Ě easier to understand.

The capacity for trusting means that your total life experiences have developed your current capacity and willingness to risk trusting others.

 

The perception of competence is made up of your perception of your ability and the ability of others with whom you work to perform competently at whatever is needed in your current situation.

 

The perception of intentions, as defined by Tway, is your perception that the actions, words, direction, mission, or decisions are motivated by mutually-serving rather than self-serving motives.

Trust is the foundation of any great relationship - both personal and professional.

Instant Project Visibility | LeanKit

Instant Project Visibility | LeanKit | Leaders & Teams | Scoop.it
LeanKit is a simple, visual project and process management tool that allows organizations to easily visualize and manage the flow of their work, while collaborating with team members to consistently deliver results.

 

Online, Visual Project Boards

 

In LeanKit, you map your organization’s processes onto virtual whiteboards. On each board the process steps are represented as vertical and horizontal lanes. Cards represent work items, which team members update and move from across the board as they complete their share of the work.

 

Rather than having to ask for status reports, managers and customers can just look at the board. Board updates are visible in seconds around the globe and e-mail alerts and RSS feeds are available, so you and your team can take immediate action to resolve issues before they turn into serious problems.

Teamwork is a frustrating as it is rewarding.  Here are a few insights about how to make the most out of collaboration.  

Rachelle Wooten's curator insight, February 5, 2013 10:07 AM

My favorite quote: "Conflict, when well managed and focused on a team's objectives, can generate more creative solutions than one sees in conflict-free groups."  All too often conflict is avoided maybe because it is poorly managed but if it's focused on team's goal or mission can be most beneficial.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 14, 2013 8:26 AM

(From the article):The hands-on activities of group leaders do make a difference. But the most powerful thing a leader can do to foster effective collaboration is to create conditions that help members competently manage themselves. The second most powerful thing is to launch the team well. And then, third, is the hands-on teaching and coaching that leaders do after the work is underway. Our research suggests that condition-creating accounts for about 60% of the variation in how well a team eventually performs; that the quality of the team launch accounts for another 30%; and that real-time coaching accounts for only about 10%. Leaders are indeed important in collaborative work, but not in the ways we usually think.

Want better teamwork and greater success? Make sure your employees are following these easy guidelines.

 

Everybody agrees that "teamwork" is crucial to business success--but few people bother define what "teamwork" really is.

 

A few years ago, Phil Geldart (author of the classic In Your Hands, the Behaviors of a World Class Leader) explained to me a set of principles that allow teams to overcome even the most thorny business challenges.

 

Based on that conversation, here are the seven characteristics of truly extraordinary teams:
