Provocative question: Gut check your team’s goals

Posted on May 20, 2014 | Tags: , | No Comments

Success looks like different things to different teams. It depends on context, history, purpose, and the team’s identity — which means that it’s crucial to gut check your ambitions.

As a team, tackle this question:

Did we commit to this outcome because we really want it, or because someone told us it’s what we should want?

Take your time surfacing your responses. Go beyond a simple “yes” or “no” to get to the “why”. If the answers are tangled and complicated, make sure you tease them out so there’s a shared understanding of what’s on everybody’s mind.
