Championship Teams Workshop

Today’s hyper-competitive and fast-moving world requires teams that are high performing on all levels — leaning into challenges, working in effective ways, and delivering powerful results.

“We’ve found patterns of communications to be the most important predictor of a team’s success. Those patterns were as significant as all other factors —intelligence, personality, talent — combined.”

Alex Pentland, MIT Media Labs

Overview

What is a Championship Team?

In the old way of doing business, the bottom line reigned supreme. Little, if any, attention was paid to company culture or employee happiness. But in today’s competitive environment, business leaders recognize that engaged employees are the key to higher productivity and better outcomes. Companies can no longer rely on merely giving what we call 1st Incomes — incentives based on financials alone. They must also provide 2nd Incomes — giving employees the tools to thrive emotionally, physically and personally.

Championship Teams are built on a culture of accomplishment. They deliver winning business results while providing members with a sense of personal and professional purpose. Championship Teams thrive on clear communication. They attract and retain talent. They report high levels of personal satisfaction, achieving greater breakthroughs with fewer breakdowns.

 

How Championship Teams Work

 

We’ve identified five core traits of a Championship Team.

We call them the Five Fundamentals:

  • Transformational Thinking

  • Deep Listening

  • Creative Speaking

  • Resolving Disruptions

  • Shared Vision

While meeting deadlines, goals and KPIs are critical, they’re only one side of the coin. Championship Teams reach beyond these simple measures to recognize that how you get to the finish line is as important as reaching it.

Cultivating these traits drives team performance with less thrash and fewer unresolved breakdowns. Employees develop shared values and vision, resulting in a deep sense of personal fulfillment and team commitment.

Within the Context of Success

Success is no longer simply a factor of producing results but rather relies on creating a virtuous cycle between fulfillment and those results.

Working in citrus cycles create better outcomes over the course of time.

Why Championship Teams Matter

We have entered what the World Economic Forum has coined the Fourth Industrial Revolution or Network Age. The primary way that businesses will grow going forward is through interconnectedness and relationships. Today’s workplace requires Championship Teams that are quick and adaptive.

According to a research project conducted by MIT and printed in the Harvard Business Review, “data showed that the most important predictor of a team’s success was its communication patterns. Those patterns were as significant as all other factors—intelligence, personality, talent— combined.1 Being able to communicate effectively within teams and across organizations and ecosystems is no longer a luxury but a necessity.
