Leaders to Their Teams: 3 Important Questions


Top teams will always have the need to focus on the fundamentals of high-performance collaboration. While there is no guarantee that your team will always make best decisions and avoid disasters, here are 3 questions that will help you stay on track. Review these with your teams to keep your business headed in the right direction.  

1. Are we still having productive discussions?

Teams produce mixed results due to a tendency to cascade toward a decision without adequately assessing alternatives. Given this tendency toward group-think, it pays to assess the strength of your agreement or disagreement by responding to a few simple statements regarding your team’s interactions. To make this easy, your team should take a brief check-in survey. These can be found online, and can tell you whether your team is really just a group of lone wolfs or one that sends ripples of change across your business.

2. Do we need to realign our priorities?

Studies show that high-level agreements about goals can mask deeper misalignments that affect team performance. When these differences go unaddressed, teams are slower to make decisions and implement them. Be willing to readjust priorities. Once you begin having more productive discussions, make a point of checking in on your strategic priorities to ensure they are in alignment with your business’ capabilities and your clients’ needs.

3. Have we become too isolated?

Just as members of a team need to make sure they are aligned behind shared priorities, the whole team should ask whether it is aligned and connected enough with the broader environment. In this sense, every member of the team should make organizational relationship-building a priority. 90% of the information a team uses to make decisions comes through informal channels rather than formal reports. Bringing fresh perspectives to strategic planning meetings can help you avoid the blind spots that plague all teams.

Even the smartest leaders can make bad decisions and past success is no guarantee of future performance. To avoid pitfalls, refresh your team’s decision-making process by asking these three simple questions.
