Culture for Great Teams and Results: 11 Easy Recipes (Agile Boston)

Culture for Great Teams and Results: 11 Easy Recipes (Agile Boston)

Your team can be ten times better.

What does that mean? That means your professional team can accomplish 10x more work, do it with 10x more quality, 10x faster, or with 10x less resources. Your family can be 10x happier. Your school can be 10x more effective at helping people learn. Your community group can be 10x better at making life better for the people it serves. Even you yourself can be 10x more effective at getting what you want.

In other words, you can be great. Your team can be great.

Greatness
Can you say these things about your teams?
- My projects are completed effortlessly on schedule and in budget every time.
- Every team I’ve ever been on has shared a vision.
- In meetings, we only ever do what will get results.
- No one blames “management," or anyone else, if they don’t get what they want.
- Everybody shares their best ideas right away.
- Ideas are immediately unanimously approved, improved, or rejected by the team.
- Action on approved ideas begins immediately.
- Conflict is always resolved swiftly and productively.

The Core Protocols are one way to make teams that have these characteristics.

Some of the things you’ll learn:
- Results-oriented behaviors,
- How to enter a state of shared vision with a team and stay there,
- How to create trust on a team
- How to stay rational and healthy
- How to make team decisions effectively, and
- How to move quickly and with high quality towards the team’s goals

    466 9754 r@kasperowski.com Manifesto for Greatness We feel GLAD, SAD, MAD and AFRAID. We have suffered mediocrity, broken promises, drama, selfishness and separation for too long. We are responsible for this mediocrity. We observe that GREATNESS emanates from SELF- AWARENESS, FAITH, HOPE, PASSION, COURAGE, WISDOM, JOY, LOVE, INTEGRITY, VULNERABILITY, SAFETY and TRUST. We have the tools—the Core Commitments and Core Protocols —that encode and deliver these virtues and ignite people to greatness. We want the world to live in love and greatness. WE ARE IN.
