3 Proven Ways to Spread Teamthink Throughout Your Organization

Are you striving to be an effective leader or just an efficient manager?

1. Use Team Terms in Your Interactions with Your Team

I once read somewhere that if you’re having problems in your organization, start by making larger concentric circles around yourself. The insight: if you want something to change in a group, start with what you’re doing and what you’ve done to make those changes.

2. Give Public Credit to the Team, Attribute Blame to Yourself

3. Praise in Public, Reprimand in Private

When the success of your team is due to the stand-out efforts of one individual (not you!), praise her in public. Tell as many people as you can (in front of her) that she did a great job for whatever she did.
