Every organization works through a team structure to get work done. Teams maybe small and monolithic, or large and cross discipline. Teams of all sizes need common practices which are understood and used by all team members. Improving team performance through the practice and application of a few, specific tools, can yield surprising dividends. Use of these tools result in a more cohesive team that performs well when buffeted by changing priorities and substantial local or global problems using a multicultural lens.
We bring four essential tools for cultivating high-performing teams, all applied with a racial equity lens, which include:
Giving and receiving feedback.
The art of appreciations.
Organizing meetings to produce accountability.
Assessing individual and team leadership styles including intercultural competency using the Intercultural Development Inventory.
