It focused on exploring the support of teams to explore what’s Possible for them, through the lens of their styles and also the Six Factors of High Performing Teams.
One of the themes embedded in it was that teams need to become better at synergizing. That takes us back to a 2019 post around Synergy – enjoy:
When situations are complex and uncertain, it may be difficult to bring all the skills required for success. Therefore, being able to focus in on leveraging the skills that are available to you as a group or team can help maximize your skill base as well as what is available to you.
As I wrote in yesterdays’ post, knowing our strengths is important on the individual and team levels.
In synergy, we are looking at how 1+1 equals more than 2.
If you have completed some strengths-based work, some additional questions to explore as a team are:
- What the core strengths we bring as a collective?
- What can we harness as a team?
- Where might we be over-developed?
- What is missing?
- Where are the gaps?
- When we think about current projects what strengths would benefit them?
- Who is best suited to support which project?
- What else is important to note?
In situations of uncertainty, it can be important to consider risk, and also contingencies. Given that contexts may be changing rapidly leading from strengths allows us to do things quicker and with less energy expended, freeing up focus and energy for other items.
