I was asked a very interesting question today, ‘what is your management style?’
While I could go the leadership route, there is something else also equally valuable..
Each person is knowingly (or unknowingly) working towards some goal.
It’s like every object on earth is absorbing and exerting energy in some shape or form.
So when we say a team is not effective, it’s not the ‘absence’ of energy,
It’s more about energies being dispersed in different directions instead of one direction!
Just like the difference between an ‘unmagnetized’ object and a ‘magentized’ object (or a magnet)
When not magnetized, the atoms are not exerting force in the same direction giving a net effect of zero.
When the object is ‘magnetized’, as per ‘domain theory’ all atoms exert force in one specific direction, creating the desired net effect of pulling objects.
Bottom line, ‘align the energies’ of the team members to get the desired results.
The goals should be clear and they should have stake in achieving the goals.
I know it’s easier said than done, but IMHO ultimately will pay off many times more.
