Teams tend to be galvanised by two things. They like to gather around the founding idea of the company. The more that idea is going to change things, the more people will want to gather around it. Purpose is important.
The second thing teams love to gather around is a leader they trust. Trust is a multiplier of energy for a team. In order for the team to trust the leader, the leader has to show the team that he or she trusts them. Trust is a two way street.
Who’s already figured this out?
Teal Organisations :Leaders of the trust game
In order to be labelled as Teal, organisations have to:
Operate effectively with a system that is based on peer relationships, regardless of scale.
Embed power and control throughout their culture, instead of in specific positions or top leaders.
Create an environment where people feel that they can fully express themselves, and bring unprecedented levels of energy, passion, and creativity to work.
Base their strategies on what the world needs, rather than the machinery of plans, budgets, targets, and incentives.
