1 April 2024

Itโ€™s more than shared targets, it’s shared moments and authentic recognition.

Five things high-performing teams do differently:

1๏ธโƒฃ ๐—–๐—ผ๐—บ๐—บ๐˜‚๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป: They talkโ€”a lot. Replacing texts with conversations, ensuring that nuances donโ€™t get lost in digital translation. 66% more phone calls than average teams.

2๏ธโƒฃ ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด๐˜€ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐—ฃ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐˜€๐—ฒ: Every meeting has a mission. Theyโ€™re 39% more likely to prep beforehand and 55% more likely to have a clear agenda. Efficiency isn’t an afterthought. It is their baseline.

3๏ธโƒฃ ๐—•๐—ฒ๐˜†๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ช๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ธ ๐—•๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐˜€: These teams know that bonding over non-work topics is 25% more likely to cement relationships that go beyond the office walls. Coffee, anyone?

4๏ธโƒฃ ๐—–๐˜‚๐—น๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—”๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป: They’re not shy with ‘thank youโ€™s’. With 72% more appreciation received from colleagues and a whopping 79% more from managers, gratitude is their currency.

๐—”๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ป๐˜‚๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ 5๏ธโƒฃ : Vulnerability is not a liability but a strength. Itโ€™s all about being genuinely you. Authenticity isn’t just encouraged, it’s expected.

๐—Ÿ๐—ฒ๐˜โ€™๐˜€ ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ธ: Does your team’s culture allow for a quick call to clear the air? Do meetings leave room for personal connection? Is saying “thank you” as habitual as morning coffee? Are members encouraged to be themselves, truly?
