Inspiring teams adopt practices and build systems that support strong coordination, high integrity, and the sharing of information. They develop a culture of trust, encouraging each team member to be open about goals, progress and achievements, obstacles and struggles. The team self-regulates and is locked in on the highest priorities while declining pursuits outside the larger vision. If your team is lacking alignment, ask yourself:
- To achieve our goals, what information do we need to have and share?
- How do the team's goals align with the company's larger goals and mission?
- What methods and channels of communication do we need to strengthen to better our performance?
