They're not stuck, they're just not collaborating.

Are you frustrated by a team that's busy but not getting exciting results? Here's the thing. They're not stuck; they're just not collaborating.  

They're not stuck, they're just not collaborating.

I've observed something interesting about teams over the past 15 years When it looks like they're stalled or spinning their wheels, they're not stuck; they're just not collaborating. 

Theyre not stuck; theyre just not collaborating quote-1

Here's something else I've observed. 

When teams form, they spend a lot of time thinking about what they'll do – like the to-do list and tasks, the goals; and spend little time thinking about how they'll work together.

Not helpful.

Why, you ask?

Because when the team finds themselves in a dynamic situation, navigating change or facing uncertainty, they won't have a protocol for working together and solving the challenging problems that come with the territory.

Is this the case with your team?

Teams need a structure for collaboration

Here's the thing.

That team that’s frustrating you? The problem isn’t that they’re stuck. 

The real problem is that your team doesn't have a structure for collaboration.

The surprise is that collaboration is a totally learnable structure.

And I can show you how to do it.

I've done it with hundreds of teams.

It doesn't take ages to learn, and once they've learned it, they can apply it to anything that comes their way. It's quick and easy to use, and far-reaching.

Imagine how good it would feel if you realized one day that your team was effectively collaborating when they tackled your business challenges.
