This question takes us into the terrain of relationship management and reputation. How do you want to be seen as a team? Exceptional? People focused? Getting results?
Here's a quick exercise:
1. Ask the team to share what adjectives they would use to describe how they would describe the team right now (from their own perspective)?
2. Get them to share adjectives internal and external stakeholders have used in the last year to describe the team?
3. What do you notice? Are they aligned? Different?
4. Now, consider your vision. Ultimately, what do you want to be known for? What's it going to take to shift from where you are now, to where you want to be?
The topics of reputation and relationship management are key. Make sure you spend some time focusing in on these areas with your team.
Have a great Thursday,
