Behaviors - What are the behaviors that are habits within the team? What behaviors are supporting positive movement, expansion and awareness? What behaviors are detracting from the team's relationships and results? What behaviors are toxic? What behaviors need to be addressed
As we saw recently with revisiting the Six Factors of A High Performing Team, teams that excel have shared behavioral agreements around acceptable and not-acceptable behaviors. What agreements do you have in place?
Beliefs - Beliefs shape our action, attitude, and goals. What are the beliefs that exist within the team? What beliefs are enabling, moving you forward? What beliefs are getting in the way? What is a "reframe" on these?
Budget- Budgeting skills are often a new area for team leaders. What do you need to notice about budgeting? What's important here?
Bold - Boldness often takes us out of our comfort zone, that uncomfortable place where learning really happens. It's also the place where transformational, not incremental, change happens. What does bold mean for you? Where have you been bold lately? What impact did it have?
Bucket - What are the buckets the team is responsible for? Would everyone agree? Who is looking after each area? What's most important in each bucket right now?
Bundle - Bundling or chunking helps with focus, prioritization and getting results. What needs to be bundled right now?
Better - We can always get better. As we have seen in past posts, leaders who focus on their team members' strengths will often see productivity gains along with better relationships. where can your team get better? In what areas? What would leveraging everyone's strengths look like in 2015?
Best - Where are you at your best? Where is the team at its' best? What would it take to spend more time in this place during 2015? How can you celebrate when you have been at your best this year?
Last November when I did the Leadership a-z over at the BizToolkit blog, I wrote about Behaviors and the skill of bottom-lining. You can read that 2013 post here.
Have a great day!
