Anyone can build teams. Building Uncommon Teams requires finding and engaging your unique identity, those of each person on your team, and those of the separate "person" that is your team.

Align the way you are living and leading with the way you want to live and lead by:

  • Identifying the force that drives you, and learning to engage and honor that force, so that you can know where you are headed, what you are creating, and why.
  • Identifying the resources that nourish and recharge you, and learning to use and maintain them fully and consistently, so that you can have the energy to lead yourself, your team, and your organization.
  • Identifying the principles that guide you and the unique signals that guide you towards greater alignment with those principles, and learning to heed those signals, so that you can leverage them for change.
  • Identifying the values you use to evaluate the effects you have on those around you and on yourself, and learning to balance and optimize those effects, so that you can experience ease in your relationships as you pursue your goals.
  • Leveraging your personal growth to help each person on your team find their own way, so that you can help them achieve their personal goals as you all achieve the goals of your team and organization.

Each of these reinforces the other. Approach them in any order. As you increase your ability to do one, your consistency in doing it, and the ease with which you do that one, you increase your ability, consistency, and ease with each of the others.

Support this process with a select set of tools that optimize:

  • How you interact with the world, so that you can nurture your resources, respect your principles, and honor your values.
  • How you measure change, so that you can see, hear, feel, taste, and smell your growth. 
  • How you move into confidence and clarity, so that you can take action, fail fast, and learn.

Why bother with all this?

Without your driving force, you will repeatedly find yourself wandering off into the weeds, losing focus, or hesitant to even start.

Without your resources to sustain your movement, you will repeatedly find yourself with insufficient energy and desire to move forward, or to keep going once you're moving.

Without your principles to maintain your alignment, you will find repeatedly find yourself uncertain whether you're heading in the right direction, or how to get back on track.

Without your values to manage your impact, you will repeatedly find yourself overwhelmed by the effects those around you are having on you, or that you are having on them.

Without tools to support you, you will repeatedly find yourself stuck and unwilling to move forward, or so worried about failing you cannot recognize when you succeed.

How does this build uncommon teams?

I always start with the individual. Whether that's you, you and your key people, or everyone across your entire team, you must have ability, consistency, and ease with each of these in order to contribute to your team. 

Then, we do the same for your team. It is its own person, and it has its own driving force, its own resources that sustain its movement, its own principles for maintaining its alignment, and its own values it uses in managing its impact. It must have ability, consistency, and ease with these in order to contribute to your product, organization, company.

Uncommon Teams, and the individuals that form them, meet goals with confidence and clarity because they:

  • Are capable, consistent, and easeful with the force that drives them, and they engage and honor that force. They know where they are headed, what they are creating, and why.
  • Are capable, consistent, and easeful with the resources that nourish and recharge them, and they use and maintain them fully and consistently. They have the energy to lead themselves, your team, and your organization.
  • Are capable, consistent, and easeful with the principles that guide them and the unique signals that guide them towards greater alignment with those principles, and they heed those signals. They leverage those signals for change.
  • Are capable, consistent, and easeful with the values they use to evaluate the effects they have on those around them and on themselves, and they balance and optimize those effects. They experience ease in their relationships as they pursue your goals.
  • Leverage their personal growth to help everyone else find their own way. They help the rest of your organization achieve their personal goals as you all achieve the goals of your team and organization.

Move from leading to Leading Uncommonly

Enable, empower, and expect yourself, each of your people, and each of your teams to work in their best way.
