The Hard Science of Teamwork

The Hard Science of Teamwork | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Like many people, I’ve encountered teams that are “clicking.” I’ve experienced the “buzz” of a group that’s blazing away with new ideas in a way that makes it seem they can read each others’ minds. We think of building teams that operate on this plane as an art, or even magic. It’s not something you can plan; it’s lightning-in-a-bottle stuff that you just embrace when you’re lucky enough to come across it.

The One Quality That Makes a Truly Great Leader

The One Quality That Makes a Truly Great Leader | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Leaders who can relate are naturally curious about other people. This allows them to engage people by truly listening to what they have to say and getting their perspective—why they think the way they think, what is important to them, and how they would approach a situation. This opens up great leaders to new ideas and creates lasting connections with the people who work for them. .
