“Leadership is based on inspiration, not domination; on cooperation, not intimidation.”
-- William Arthur Ward
Alex is a project manager and he is frustrated.
He heads up an intact Business Process Improvement team composed of individuals from multiple support functions in the company. They’ve been working on a project aimed at reducing the number of complaints for on-time delivery to their customer groups.
Alex is the group leader and he’s supposed to have the skills to lead this group and produce results.
But that’s not what’s happening.
A handful of dominant people have hijacked the agenda and now they decide what gets discussed and action planned.
The passive members aren’t speaking up. Participation has dropped off. Alex has met privately with the more passive team members and encouraged them to speak up and participate but little has changed.
He’s asked you to come in and facilitate his team with the hope that they will start leveraging their collective strength.
How do you get the best input from ALL participants?
How do you most effectively create an environment where idea creation is easy and natural?
The Teams In Trouble TelSeminar series is delivered live by Tom Heck of the International Association of Teamwork Facilitators and Michael Goldman of FacilitationFirst.com.
Michael shares a proven strategy to reduce the negative effects of dominant leaders while showing how you can leverage the power of the team.
I shared one of my favorite teambuilding activities that creates an awareness among the team members as to the cost of “going it alone” vs. working as an empowered high functioning team.
