Five great activities to build trust and boost team performance

Five great activities to build trust and boost team performance | New Leadership | Scoop.it

When the employees in a certain company join forces and work towards a single goal, they complete the tasks more successfully and build the company’s morale. That’s why teamwork is so important for every single business. Positive team spirit is impossible without empathy – the ability to relate to other people’s experiences, thoughts and emotions.

It’s not easy to build trust between the employees in your company. Each of them is an individual with strong personal characteristics that aren’t always harmonious with the environment. However, there are certain activities that can help team members function perfectly with each other.

Why We Love Tough-Love Managers

Why We Love Tough-Love Managers | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Spoiler alert: This isn’t a racy tell-all about office romance. Rather, it’s an appreciation inspired by some recent sessions with young people just starting their careers. They had questions about specific companies and industries. But I found myself responding by talking the most about specific managers who had shaped me in the various jobs I had over the years.

I’ve worked in positions ranging from the mundane to the relatively glamorous. And the places where I thrived were not the most obvious. Looking back, it’s clear to me that it was often the person, not the position, that mattered most. And so my advice to these young people was to find a manager you love.

Human relationships need trust. Think of any successful relationship and trust is the cement that holds it together. We do not manage healthy relationships.They somehow happen organically.

 

Gert Biesta argued that we have replaced relational language of someone teaching someone with a discourse of learnification.

Leaders must live up to the definition of the term “leader.”


(From the article): Your character matters most when nobody’s looking. I long for the day when honor has meaning. In this world, most people do the right thing because they know that what goes around comes around. And if it doesn’t, they know they’ll get paid back in karma points.


In the new world I envision, people follow the spirit as well as the letter of the law. This is a world in which shaking someone’s hand is as good as a contract and where one’s reputation is a valued asset. This is a world in which people go to great lengths to protect their family name, and leaders see their first responsibility as strengthening the trust and credibility of their institutions. In this world, people do the right thing not only because it’s considered acceptable behavior, but because they know every action affects another action. In this world, people won’t be policed by bureaucracies because everyone will see it as their duty to call out unacceptable behavior — ethical derelicts will be disgraced and shunned for their misdeeds. In this world, people are accountable to a higher power — themselves — letting their own conscience be their guide.

The Trickle-Down Effect of Good (and Bad) Leadership

The Trickle-Down Effect of Good (and Bad) Leadership | New Leadership | Scoop.it
We know that emotions are contagious. Research by UC San Diego’s James Fowler and Harvard’s Nicholas Christakis has shown that happiness is contagious, for example. If you have a friend who is happy, the probability that you will be happier rises by 25%.

We also know that behaviors are contagious. Christakis and Fowler determined that if you have overweight friends, you’re more likely to be overweight yourself. If you quit smoking, your friends are more likely to quit. Rose McDermott of Brown University found that divorce is contagious. She concluded that if you have a close friend who’s divorced, you are 33% more likely to split with your spouse.

Why and how is this video worthwhile?  It's informative and it's inspirational.  It shows six very different personalities, ages and stages, who have all 'made it' doing the same job, in very different ways.  

It shows their strength of character and passion (you can call this ego, either way, it's a potency to do courageous things, and a required attribute of a great leader).  

It shows their willingness to learn from others and mistakes, to master a craft, and build a collaborative team, rather than simply collect extrinsic rewards (of which they have received oodles, anyway).  

And it shows their humility (what they're afraid of, what they have learned, and what they regret), even if some appear to have more than others.

(From the article): Ask yourself a trigger question, and capture your response. These are some of my favorite questions:

How am I feeling right now?
How am I feeling about my leadership?
What deserves my highest-quality attention…
in my leadership?
in my life?
in the world?
What is the most outrageous (or fun or novel) idea I’ve heard in the last 24 hours? What do I love about it?
What is the most exciting initiative I’ve heard about this week that is happening outside of my industry or in another part of the world?
What contributed most to my happiness this week (or to the happiness of my people)? How can I have more happiness in my life?
