It takes a large extended team to get the job done at Salesforce. Period.
As a leader, your job is to bring people together. Two of the biggest things I have learned over my years as a leader is that people need to be heard and that most team break down comes from lack of communication.
If you spend more time up front addressing both, you slow down enough to understand – and drastically speed up in the long run.
We have run this exercise on my team as we welcome new team members and integrate with our extended partners.
One slide, four questions. Everyone shares. You will be shocked at what you currently don’t know about your team.
What is important for US to know about the best way to work with YOU?
How do you like to be communicated with?
When are you at your best?
How do we address conflict when it comes up?
Take 30 minutes at your next team meeting and slow down….to speed up.
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
