Construction of a new and collaborative team

I’ve spent the past 20 years studying collaboration in the workplace. As a result, I’ve worked in and with some of the most dysfunctional workplaces and some of the most amazing workplaces. As a team, we’ve surveyed thousands of workers to understand their challenges and ideas for creating more collaboration.

In our quest to provide strategic solutions and simple tools, our clients have grown their organizations, launched new products faster than ever before, implemented sweeping changes with less pain, expedited merger and acquisition processes, and won awards as industry leaders. Their employees don’t quit (mentally or literally), and the number and quality of applicants interested in joining them soars.

One of the most compelling results came from our client, John, a chief operating officer of a large health system. In a January coaching session, John shared their many successes of the prior year: new service lines, better quality, more satisfied patients. For the first time in many years, they hit their profit targets.

When asked what drove this success, John replied, “It’s simple. We’re just treating people better. We’re thinking differently about our team members, and that’s affecting the decisions we make and the results we achieve. We work together to make the changes we all want to see in health care.”

John’s right. It’s as simple as that. The collaboration breakthrough isn’t complicated at all.

John’s organization started with our Collaboration Breakthrough survey to see how collaborative their employees really were.  Then, teams participated in our Interactive Team Experience to create action plans to drive their desired changes.

Attend our next Collaboration Breakthrough Showcase to test drive our survey and learn to build a Collaborative Workplace in your organization.  For more information, go to: www.collaborationbreakthrough.com .
