Leadership Skills: Never Allow One Goal to Trump the Other
One of the most powerful, simple, and unique team-building tools in my arsenal is actually a mindset. This mindset is powerful enough to create breakthrough communication and thinking. Its uniqueness comes from the fact that so few people have it -- or know they have it. It's so simple it took me a long time even to realize I had...

Leadership Skills: Master Your Intentions
In U.S. culture, when we claim to "intend" something, we're usually making a conscious pledge -- such as a stated goal. However, "intentionality" is always both conscious and unconscious, and the majority of our behavior is actually controlled unconsciously. If you doubt this, just recall the last time you consciously sent blood to your gastro-intestinal system to grab some sugar...

Collaboration: It’s Not About Being Right or Wrong
Collaboration Is Not About Being Right or Wrong Some people exhibit such a need to be right that they can't stand evidence to the contrary. Do you work with someone like that? These are the folks who work overtime to prove others wrong and disparage anyone who has a different point of view. This type of communication stance makes team...

Leadership Skills: Tap Into Team Members’ Existing Motivation
Most leaders have the motivation process exactly backward! For who knows how long, when you (a leader) wanted me (a follower) to commit to high performance, you and I both expected YOU to tell ME what's in it for me to work with you. It's much smarter to tap into my existing motivation by asking ME to tell YOU what's...

Outcome Thinking for Leadership: Your Thoughts Attract Your Results
Do you know exactly what you want? Do your partners know exactly what you want? Do you know exactly what they want? Over the years, I have been fascinated and focused on the power of outcome thinking.

How Consensus Decision-Making Creates Shared Direction in a Team
In a previous post I called attention to "consent" as the root of "consensus" (as well as the basis for participation in any group). What some people love and others hate about the process of consensus decision-making is that it requires participants to seek every group member's sincere consent to move forward. In fact, my definition of consensus is 100%...
