Get Your Team to Stop Arguing and Start Collaborating

Ever find yourself spending gobs of time playing mediator between teams, wishing they would find a way to work together? If they just understood each other, you wouldn’t have to spend so much time and energy helping each side understand the other.

You’re ready to free yourself of having to deal with these constant misunderstandings, but you’re just not sure how. This is exactly the challenge one executive in the entertainment industry was struggling with when she agreed to being coached live on a beautiful day.

Check out the video to gain a full sense of her specific challenge, along with the first step in creating an environment where teams organically find a way toward cohesion regardless of differences.

Here’s your first step in getting your team to stop arguing and start collaborating: Identify and consistently communicate the greater goal (vision).

By taking the time to ask team members to share their understanding of the vision (and their specific role in making it happen) you will save yourself gobs of time and energy. This one exercise alone will net great insights, leading you to freedom from playing mediator.

Enjoy & Happy Spring!

Here’s to your greatness,
