Full Tilt Teams produce innovation that is disruptive.
Collaborative teams and shared leadership are the model of the future. Hierarchy is fading fast because teams don’t need command and control to perform. Creative, collaborative teams are THE structure of the global economy in any size company for any endeavor……because they are lean, agile and come together to create disruptive innovations that quickly replace current products and services. And Innovation is the single most important deliverable any company must produce to survive in the current business environment.
Smart companies are putting this idea to work and orienting work around key initiatives and projects. They come together to deliver and they disperse when the job is done. It isn’t rocket science, but it does require knowing how to assist teams to be highly productive. This means NO personality drama, no politics, no having to put up with someone if they don’t produce, because effective teams that create the right climate naturally expel those who don’t gel with the rest of the group. Also, take the personality problems out of the mix so teams can focus on the creative work they are doing and zero in on the tremendous energy produced by a team that is razor-focused on exciting new outputs.
Here’s the challenge. You have to know how to create the CULTURE within which these teams can thrive. To enable high-energy productivity, the structure, values, beliefs and commitments must be clear. CLARITY and STRUCTURE are key anchors for stability. Add positive social CONNECTION to the formula and you enable IMPACT. Four kinds of thinking must be built into the team-level climate or the team will soar out of balance. Polarized individuals lead to divided teams and divided teams don’t produce innovation. Divided teams house individuals who more often keep their creative contribution to themselves, take it with them to their own start-ups or, worse, leave and join the competition.
So, how do you learn how to create team-level climate for creativity and innovation? I’ve researched exactly that for two decades and have built a structure and team measures that can show you visually and empirically exactly what to do to make the shift. The Tilt Team Climate Predictor and the True Tilt Team Model show the way and I will teach you how to shape the company culture to embrace this.
Is your culture full of stress, drama and politics, or is it creative, innovative and regenerative? YOU CHOOSE. I can help you diagnose and change the climate in YOUR team in less than three months. All it takes is your commitment and some time to learn the ropes.
