High Performance Teams

Your team can be ten times better.

What does that mean? That means your professional team can accomplish 10x more work, do it with 10x more quality, 10x faster, or with 10x fewer resources. Your family can be 10x happier. Your school can be 10x more effective at helping people learn. Your community group can be 10x better at making life better for the people it serves. Even you yourself can be 10x more effective at getting what you want.

In other words, you can be great. Your team can be great.

Greatness
Can you say these things about your teams?

  1. My projects are completed effortlessly on schedule and within budget every time.
  2. Every team I’ve ever been on has shared a vision.
  3. In meetings, we only ever do what will get results.
  4. No one blames “management” or anyone else if they don’t get what they want.
  5. Everybody shares their best ideas right away.
  6. Ideas are immediately unanimously approved, improved, or rejected by the team.
  7. Action on approved ideas begins immediately.
  8. Conflict is always resolved swiftly and productively.

The Core Protocols are one way to make teams that have these characteristics.

Some of the things you’ll learn:

  • Results-oriented behaviors
  • How to enter a state of shared vision with a team and stay there
  • How to create trust on a team
  • How to stay rational and healthy
  • How to make team decisions effectively
  • How to move quickly and with high quality towards the team’s goals

This 30-second video summarizes the experience.

Architecting culture

Culture is just another name for behaviors’ recipes.

Culture in teams can be hacked as any other device in order to get better performances.

In this video I discuss the idea of changing team and organizations culture both ways: changing behaviors and changing rules.

Escape top emotional intelligence traps and hack team culture

15-1954-Scrum_Shanghai_Speaker_FM2

What happens to emotional IQ in a team? Answer is in the way we use language and body to create our experience and culture.

In this session I discuss the way we use our language and our bodies when we want to achieve something. I will propose that anything we want achieve,as an individual or as a team, is always achieved in a relational space and that the precondition for any kind of achievement stays in consciously working inside the relationship and needs a basic ingredient: integrity. Integrity is easily defined but difficultly gained and kept, mainly because of the eleven misconceptions we will address in the session.

We will learn how to connect emotional intelligence theory with clean linguistic and cognitive practices. We’ll experiment simple techniques to leverage emotions in any goal-oriented setting, be it their work, their teamwork or their relationships. Also we’ll learn to convert common misconceptions about emotions in powerful, mindset changing behaviors.

Escape top emotional intelligence traps and create freedom in teams

What happens to emotional IQ in a daily practice to pursue freedom? Answer is in the way we use language and body.

In the session attendees will learn how to connect emotional intelligence theory with clean linguistic and cognitive practices. They will experiment simple techniques to leverage emotions in any goal-oriented setting, be it their work, their teamwork or their relationships. They will learn also to convert very common misconceptions about emotions in powerful, mindset changing and practical behaviors. The tools that we’ll use in the session are language and body. We will learn that language can be effective or not in emotional intelligence, depending on how we use it (and we’ll see the four main uses of language) and also that speech and body are not alternative means of getting things done and goals achieved.
