OD Toolkit Series - Work That Counts – In and Across Teams:  An introduction and overview

Richard Lee

This training will be conducted live via Zoom. The zoom meeting details will be sent out 24hr prior to the training.

Program Description:

Work That Counts provides a framework for cross-functional success, including the skills to increase impact working in and across teams in complex organizations.  Based on working with many of the world’s best innovation companies, with a behind-the-scenes vantage point, three interdependent mindsets or levers emerged.  If any one of the three is weak, it will disproportionately diminish impact.  If all are strong and in sync, they will drive inordinately greater impact, results and innovation. 

First, people need the fuel to take action and drive decisions.  This is based on fine-tuning the empowered relationship between the team leader and team member.  We offer key skills that the team leader and team member each utilize to build the level of trust required in any dynamic relationship.

Second, people need to individually and collectively align to do the right thing, for their broader team.  Even with the best executive vision, strategy and goals, all professionals and managers need to make wiser decisions on direction and alignment, on a day-to-day basis.

Third, people need to collaborate in and across teams to achieve goals.  It’s challenging enough to partner well within a team, and that much more across teams.  Without it, people will alienate others, and at a minimum, not take advantage of the power of the team.

All three mindsets and respective skills are required to make your work truly count, enabling people to do the best work of their lives.  All participants will receive the hard-cover book, Work That Counts – Breaking Down the Barriers to Extraordinary Results.

Three Learning Outcomes:

  1. How to drive a more empowered relationship, as a team leader or as a team member.
  2. How to choose to do the right thing for your broader organization.
  3. How to partner in and across teams to achieve cross-functional goals.
