Which Way Are You Paddling?Apr 06, 2015
At ACT Dental, we are all about the principles of a high performing team. So we thought “Hey! This little boating adventure is the perfect video!”
Is there one person paddling against your progress? Maybe it’s time they get a little wet!
This week, take a look at the culture of your team. Are you all paddling together?
There are 3 conditions to team dynamics, which likely resemble the way your team would row a boat.
ENGAGED — The entire team is rowing together toward a common goal. Everyone is in sync and your progress feels good!
NOT ENGAGED — The feeling that someone doesn’t have their oar completely in the water. This is where the whole team might feel they’re having to pick up the slack for a lack of production.
ACTIVELY DISENGAGED –The sense that someone is actually paddling against the progress. This can lead to a lack of production, and a general feeling of energy being sucked from the team effort.
Are there areas where your team isn’t as cohesive as it could be? Enjoy the holiday, and ask yourself where you think your team effort and direction could use a little adjustment.
And if you are actually out paddling around…hopefully you’re a little more seaworthy than the ACT team!!!
