Team Accelerators™ — The Five Force Multipliers of High-Performance Teams.

Available in Kindle eBook: Organizations today put a premium on teamwork. Why? Horsepower. But not all teams are high-performance teams. There is a difference between adding horsepower and generating force-power. Force-power is exponential energy that is generated by a force-multiplier. Force-multipliers are tools, elements, or a combination of factors that dramatically increase the effectiveness of a group. They supersize outcomes and outputs. A force-multiplier is a team of four squared that now generates the outcomes of sixteen. High-performance teams cultivate force-power in their team chemistry along with the standard expectations of skill, technical ability, and experience. Team Accelerators™ unpacks the five force multipliers that transform workgroups into teams, and teams into high-performance partnerships that multiply their outputs to achieve exceptional business outcomes. The best companies know that Team Accelerators™ helps them compete, innovate, scale, and seize opportunities in the digital economy. ISBN: 978-1-64316-183-9

The DISC Model Alive: Self-Awareness — A Game Changer For High-Performing Teams.

Kindle Edition - E-Book: Accurate self-awareness is one of the most powerful things a person can possess. To know yourself is the foundational cornerstone to bolstering your emotional intelligence. Knowing your strengths, limitations, skills, emotions, and motivations, fuel self-confidence. Self-awareness influences our attitudes, behaviors, and relationships with others. Effective self-leadership needs clear-eyed self-awareness. You cannot manage what you cannot see. It is also important to have an awareness of how other people perceive us and experience us. Self-awareness is strong when perceptions about ourselves and the perceptions others have of us are in alignment. If they are not, we can assume there is a disconnect somewhere. Bridging this disconnect is critical to maximizing professional effectiveness. Business is about relationships. Trust is the currency. When others do not perceive us the way we perceive ourselves, two realities now exist and trusted relationships can waffle. It's important to remember that perceived reality is reality to that person. The DISC Model Alive provides insights, tools, and practical strategies on how to increase personal, professional, and team self-awareness. It introduces individuals and teams to effective communication strategies so all can flourish, and where workgroups transform into high-performing, emotionally intelligent teams.
