Have you ever had the experience of being part of a driven, energized team? When a team is firing on all cylinders its excitement and evidence of accomplishment make it feel like anything is possible.

But why isn’t this kind of experience happening more often, or limited to only certain teams or people?

Interestingly, the agreements, attributes, and behavioral dynamics that allow for a team to out-perform are well understood, and have remained consistent over time, technology, and even across generations. However, these dynamics are rarely discussed, and little to no time is spent creating these dynamics, outside of the occasional “ice-breaker” exercise.

One reason is that we rush to get through the agenda, check-off the task list, or reach a key milestone. But here’s the thing – the condition of the team and its relationships with each other will be reflected in anything that team does. Which means taking the time to create the right dynamics is an investment that has a return in everything that team produces. As Barry Svigals, FAIA puts it so profoundly, “How we are is what it becomes.”

At the next Frameworks, we will explore the specific dynamics that elevate team performance, and how to make establishing those dynamics a reliable practice that produces results consistently. If you are looking to take your team(s) to the next level of performance, you don’t want to miss this episode.

Fathom Frameworks – A series about how to become a high-performance, purpose-driven organization

Purpose seems to be all the rage in business these days, and Balaji Ganapathy, CSRO Tata Consulting made it plain and simple in a recent panel lead by Fathom’s Brent Robertson by stating “Purpose is the New Tech.”

Maybe that’s because the evidence is clear that organizations driven by ideas greater than the services and products they provide, outperform those that aren’t. In fact, the 2018 Corporate Board/EY Global Leadership Forecast finds that “Purposeful companies outperform the stock market by 42%.”

So, how does purpose get established, and how does it translate into a meaningful and measurable change in performance? Fathom is in the business of creating high-performance purpose-driven organizations and is beginning a new series called Fathom Frameworks where you can learn about, and engage in, the transformative power of purpose.

Each episode will focus on a common business activity such as strategic planning or team building and showcase ways to dramatically enhance the outcomes those activities deliver by changing where you’re thinking and acting from. We will introduce powerful new perspectives, share examples about how those perspectives have been applied successfully and how you can engage with them and Fathom to drive performance beyond the benchmarks of what you’ve known is possible.
