In this new land without borders called Corona, leaders and teams are learning ‘on-the-fly’ to stay on track. We get accustomed to the new normal. And yet, can you relate to this? Days packed with video conferences, doing our tasks, in between taking care of kids and maybe elderly too, ordering stuff online, and before you know it: It’s getting dark outside.
Yes, we seem to be doing okay as a team. And yes, there are personal challenges in the teams that we try to support. We notice that slowly but surely our meetings tend to get more and more practical. There seems to be a tendency toward our conversations becoming more and more cognitive. We become less open about what we are feeling and about what we need. With this online working, there are fewer organic conversations, and we are losing a quality that comes from being together and from closeness. And with that, we lose deeper connections that engender team development and performance.
Translating team insights to effectiveness
What’s the impact of all of this for our teams? What do we need to get on track once the lockdown is over? What can we learn from our collaboration and our remote working, and how do we translate our insights into solutions? As a leader, you might feel the inclination to find answers on your own. That’s only natural. But imagine what it could be like if the whole team is participating in finding breakthrough ideas. Without getting into endless discussions. Does that sound like heaven? And far-fetched, as well?
Well, perhaps this might interest you: We have found a way to help dozens of teams on all levels to get connected, build trust to take a deeper dive into the challenges of cooperation. We have helped them find innovative solutions towards team development and high performance and to generate ideas that enhance our resilience, collaboration, and performance.
