#1

We’re developing today’s teams as if it were the 1960s.

Organizations and the world they operate in have moved on.

#2

Stop all the happy talk about teamwork and start focusing on stronger collaboration.

The words, “team” and “teamwork” have become hollow jargon.

#3

Strong collaboration is intentional collaboration.

Great groups figure out what work they must do together. They’re equally clear about what work is better done by individuals.

#4

Intentional collaboration depends on tapping into individual motivations

Shared work must be as clear and compelling as people’s individual tasks.

#5

Irresistible collaboration includes shared goals, but it relies on shared work.        

Shared goals matter, but not as much as you might think.

MORE >

#6

There are different levels and types of collaboration and they’re not all equal.

Know what sort of collaboration is required and tune your team development efforts to it.

#7

To collaborate better, collaborate less.

Collaboration is used only where it will add demonstrable value. 

MORE >

#8

Trust and stronger relationships are important but they’re not the starting point.

Connect relationship building to specific tasks that team members care deeply about.

MORE >

#9

Focus on practices instead of stages to fuel team development

Teams that don't adapt and grow don't last.

MORE >


#10

Learning—the only form of sustainable team spirit.

Learning together becomes the source of incredible energy.
