How to accelerate your teams by generating emotional intelligence within.
While working as an Agile Coach for almost a decade, I often hear organisations, CEOs, managers, and coaches talking about how to build great teams, how to create high-performing teams, and how to get maximum output from a team.
To address this, most organisations invest a lot in employee training and learning programs, team building events, various tools and the processes around these.
However, the most vital aspect of a team is that it is made of people and you cannot bring out the best in your team just by investing in tools and processes. What should organisations and managers do then?
Well, my tested solution and approach to this is – Be human and generate EQ (emotional quotient) within your team.
Yes! being human and being empathetic towards each other makes a team much stronger and makes a difference by connecting team members on a mindful level.
So, considering that every person has beliefs, perspectives, and opinions, just like you and me. considering that every person has hopes, anxieties and vulnerabilities, just like you and me.considering that every person has friends, family, and perhaps children who love them, just like you and me. considering that every person wants to feel respected, appreciated, and competent, just like you and me and considering that every person wishes for peace, joy, and happiness, just like you and me can add so much to a team.
At the end it is the human to human connection that makes a team “A TEAM”.
My talk will be focused on all those coaching conversations I had with my mentors, peers, close network and teams which danced in my mind with their influences and impacts in building great teams.
Each had its own story and takeaways to carry.
I will be sharing such 5 different stories, which will help to gain a greater insight on how to make a team “A Great Team”.
