There are two constants in business. Change is one; another is that teams need certain conditions in order to engage one another and move quickly and effectively to achieve shared goals.
Like the GPS in a car or phone, the TeamWork GPS provides leaders and teams with information about where you are so you can get where you want to go. The TeamWork GPS allows leaders and teams to quickly assess the starting conditions for the next project, quarter, or year.
To go fast and win you need shared clarity (your Guiding Stars), resources and routines (your Provisions), and the competence to perform, lead and work together as a team (Skill).
Guiding Stars (Shared Clarity)— Teams need a clear direction (shared clarity of vision, mission, strategy, execution plan, roles, success measures, and accountabilities).
Provisions (Resources and Routines)— Teams need a positive environment and culture, efficient structure, simple processes and tools, and adequate resources.
Skill (Aptitude and Attitude)— Teams need individual and collective aptitude (knowledge and functional, leadership, and social competence) and the attitude (emotional intelligence and will).
