Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.  This week we journey into the unknown with innovation researcher Nathan Furr and entrepreneur Susannah Furr, who navigate us through the fear and stress of uncertainty to find the creative opportunity on the other side. Nathan Furr is a professor of strategy and innovation at INSEAD in Paris and an expert in the fields of innovation and technology strategy. His bestselling books include The Innovator's Method and Innovation Capital. Published regularly in Harvard Business Review, MIT Sloan Management Review, Forbes and Inc., he is an Innosight Fellow, has been nominated for the Thinkers50 Innovation Award, and works with leading companies including Google, Microsoft, Citi, ING, and Philips. Susannah Harmon Furr is an entrepreneur, designer, art historian, and contrarian. Her clothing line was inspired by her research into the intricate embroidery Dutch women painstakingly rendered on their plain uniforms—details often invisible to all but the wearer—and its significance in their daily lives. She has also founded a design services firm. Nathan and Susannah are the parents of four teenagers.    THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…  individuals who want to break away from the stresses of uncertainty to overcome their fears, adopt innovations, imagine the possibilities, set out on new adventures, and ultimately, embrace change.   TODAY'S MAIN MESSAGE… we are hard-wired to love the idea of control, but we have to accept that some things are outside of our control. For those who shy away from willingly bringing uncertainty into their lives, they recommend implementing “balancers” to create a sense of familiarity in your day to day life. The sense of security that comes from having a few routine choices - like standard lunches or outfits - can help keep us relatively stable when uncertainty creeps into our lives (or when we are ready to introduce it ourselves!).   WHAT  I  LOVE  MOST… Nathan and Susannah have a starry-eyed optimism for the future, not because they know that everything is going to work out in the end, but because they know they will be able to handle it when something inevitably goes wrong. So they choose to imagine the best possible outcome for the future, while simultaneously creating a plan to manage their risk tolerance and address the worst case scenario.     Running time: 25:52 Subscribe on iTunes     Find Tiffani on social: Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Instagram   Find Nathan & Susannah on social: Website Twitter LinkedIn Google Scholar     Nathan and Susannah's Book: The Upside of Uncertainty

Even before the pandemic began in 2020, the number of health care organizations appointing chief health equity officers had started to grow. Is this a role for 1 person only or do initiatives to tackle health care disparities and other issues begin at a higher level? And how can change really be accomplished so there is a measurable effect on health outcomes? In this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Sachin Jain, MD, MBA, who joined SCAN Group and Health Plan 2 years ago as president and CEO. He discusses an effort, recently described in an article in Harvard Business Review, about how SCAN made 10% of senior managers' annual bonuses dependent on how well the gap in medication adherence among diverse populations was reduced. The former CareMore executive shares why executives at the top of organizations need to champion and lead initiatives to reduce health care disparities and do more than “virtue signaling” on health equity issues.

Ruchika Tulshyan: Inclusion on Purpose Ruchika Tulshyan is the founder of Candour, a global inclusion strategy firm. She is a regular contributor to The New York Times and Harvard Business Review. As a keynote speaker, Ruchika has addressed organizations like NASA, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the United States Congress. Ruchika is the author of The Diversity Advantage: Fixing Gender Inequality in the Workplace, and most recently, Inclusion on Purpose: An Intersectional Approach to Creating a Culture of Belonging at Work*. She is on the Thinkers50 Radar list and named as one of Hive Learning's Most Influential D&I Professionals for the past two years. In this conversation, Ruchika and I discuss how leaders can adapt their hiring practices to attract more diverse candidates — and ultimately support inclusion inside their organizations. We discuss the importance of what to both include and avoid in job postings. Plus, we examine how well-intended interview practices can sometimes have unintended results on supporting diversity and inclusion. Key Points Make the hiring process transparent from start to finish. Include an authentic equal opportunity statement. Refrain from using certain words in job listings. Examples include: rockstar, ninja, hacker, guru, manage, build, aggressive, fearless, independent, analytic, and assertive. Emphasize skills and experience over professional degrees. Avoid panel interviews and refrain from asking questions or having conversations about culture fit.

Dorie Clark has been named one of the Top 50 business thinkers in the world by Thinkers50. In addition to being a consultant for brands like Google and Microsoft, Dorie teaches at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business and Columbia Business School, and she is the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Long Game, Entrepreneurial You, Reinventing You, and Stand Out, which was named the #1 Leadership Book of the Year by Inc. magazine. We discussed all of this and more this week on the On Brand podcast. About Dorie Clark Dorie Clark helps individuals and companies get their best ideas heard in a crowded, noisy world. She has been named one of the Top 50 business thinkers in the world by Thinkers50. She was honored as the #1 Communication Coach by the Marshall Goldsmith Leading Global Coaches Awards and one of the Top 5 Communication Professionals in the World by Global Gurus. She is a keynote speaker and teaches for Duke University's Fuqua School of Business and Columbia Business School. She is The Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Long Game, Entrepreneurial You, Reinventing You, and Stand Out, which was named the #1 Leadership Book of the Year by Inc. magazine. A former presidential campaign spokeswoman, Clark has been described by The New York Times as an “expert at self-reinvention and helping others make changes in their lives.” She is a frequent contributor to the Harvard Business Review, and consults and speaks for clients such as Google, Yale University, and the World Bank. Forbes has declared that “her insights connect marketing, social media, communications, learning technologies, and personal discovery to give us a blueprint for success in the future economy.” She is a graduate of Harvard Divinity School, a producer of a multiple Grammy-winning jazz album, and a Broadway investor.   Episode Highlights Leading with “the fun part” … I kicked off the interview by asking Dorie about some of her interesting activities like investing in Broadway shows and producing jazz albums. This led her to one of the big ideas of her latest book The Long Game … Optimize for interesting. “We're often told to follow our passion but many don't know what their passion is—they have passion shame.” That's why Dorie encourages people to optimize for what's interesting in their lives. If there's a seed of something you like, work to add more of that in your work. In turn, this helps you stand out as a personal brand. What if you're stuck? What if you don't know what the inserting part of your life is? Dorie had a couple of idea starters for this. “First, what did you like to do as a kid? Chances are, you still like the same things now.” You'll have to listen to the show for her other handy hacks. “I look for positive constraints in business,” says Dorie. “Constraints can make us more creative and efficient.” She then noted Parkinson's Law, which says that work will expand to fill the time allotted. What brand has made Dorie smile recently? Dorie cited the fun summer (and sustainable) shoe brand Suavs for all of the good they're doing with their innovative products. “We all consume too much plastic. It's good to see someone doing something about it.” To learn more about Dorie and to take her free self-assessment that goes with The Long Game, head to dorieclark.com/thelonggame.

We are at the start of a time when humans will be able to program cells and organisms in analogous ways to which we now program computers. Our technology and understanding of the basic structures of life, augmented by computer simulations driven by AI, are driving breakthrough innovations at an ever-increasing rate.What will this mean for us all? It could mean the end of most diseases and the actual process of aging. I could mean that the current existential risks of climate change and bio-diversity collapse could be removed. It could also mean that our exposure to the existential risks of bioterrorism grows exponentially. I could mean a radical new social class structure based on different access to, and use of human ability enhancements will generate political upheaval and violence. What is inarguably true, is that advances in our understanding and ability to manipulate biological systems will disrupt business, governance, culture and geopolitics in fundamental ways. This may not happen this year, or next, but make no mistake, the challenges are coming.Amy Webb, my guest for this episode, believes we desperately need to start these conversations now, while we still have some time to shape what the future will hold. Amy's, and her co-author Andrew Hessel's book, The Genesis Machine: Our Quest to Rewrite Life in the Ague of Synthetic Biology, is a wonderful, guided tour of synthetic biology's past, present, and likely future. It is also a catalyst to the discussion about how we balance the risks and amazing promise of these innovations. As Amy says, the best way to understand this technology is that it gives us options which we have never had – how we choose amongst those options is what we need to think about now.Amy is a quantitative futurist and is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the New York University Stern School of Business. Her research focuses on strategic foresight and using data to model probable, plausible and possible scenarios for the future. She was named to the Thinkers50 Radar list of the 30 management thinkers most likely to shape the future of how organizations are managed and won the prestigious 2017 Thinkers50 RADAR Award for her research and work in strategic foresight. She is also the CEO and founder of the Future Today Institute, a leading strategic foresight and future forecasting firm that researches emerging technology on behalf of Fortune 500 and Global 1000 companies, government agencies and financial institutions around the world. In addition to being a best-selling author of multiple books, Amy's future forecasting work has been featured in the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, MIT Sloan Management Review and more.It was an absolute pleasure to discuss with Amy the issues raised in her book. It is unsurprising that so many people and organisations turn to her when they want a view of what our possible futures may be!

The world is noisier today than it ever has been before, and we're left trying to process this excess of information! Kristel Bauer sat down with Leigh Marz & Justin Zorn on this Live Greatly podcast episode to chat about the power of silence. Leigh & Justin are the authors of their new book, Golden: The Power of Silence in a World of Noise. The same techniques that Justin and Leigh have taught to US Congress, NASA, Harvard and Google can help you reclaim the presence of silence in your life. Tune in to learn about why silence is important, how you can find silence in the busyness of life, how to navigate information overload and so much more! Key Takeaways from This Episode What are the benefits of silence How to find silence in the midst of hectic days Why is all of this excess noise potentially harmful How to get comfortable with silence Insights from the book GOLDEN: The Power of Silence in a World of Noise In their book GOLDEN: The Power of Silence in a World of Noise (HarperWave; on sale: May 17, 2022), Justin Zorn and Leigh Marz invite us to rethink our definition of silence—not just as the absence of noise, but as a presence that can bring us energy, clarity, and deeper connection. The world is louder than ever. It's not just the noise in our ears, but the noise on our screens and in our heads. With the average person sending/receiving 125 emails a day and with the WHO ranking noise pollution as second only to air pollution in its impact on human wellbeing, it's clear that modern society has lost its connection to silence. While mindfulness can help us cope with the onslaught of noise, research shows that few people maintain a meditation practice over time. We need more accessible and enduring ways of finding clarity and renewal. Now, the same techniques Zorn and Marz have taught to the U.S. Congress, NASA, Harvard, and Google can help us reclaim the presence of silence in our lives. In GOLDEN, the authors illuminate how through their wide-ranging expertise and moving storytelling, including: • The economics and psychology of why our world is so noisy • The science of why silence is essential for our bodies and minds • Why virtually all the world's spiritual traditions honor silence as a path to truth • Practical approaches to finding “little moments” of silence as well as deeper immersion • How to find renewing silence in families, among friends, and in workplaces • Building a society that honors silence—including the values of rest and deep listening About Justin Talbot Zorn: Justin has served as both a strategist and a meditation teacher in the US Congress. A Harvard-andOxford-trained specialist in the economics and psychology of human thriving, he has written for the Washington Post, The Atlantic, Harvard Business Review, Foreign Policy, and other publications. Justin is the coauthor of Golden: The Power of Silence in a World of Noise, published by HarperCollins in the US, Penguin/Random House in the UK, and globally in 11 other languages. He is cofounder of Astrea Strategies, a consultancy that bridges contemplation and action, helping leaders and teams envision and communicate solutions to complex challenges. Justin lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with his wife and three children. About Leigh Marz: Leigh is a collaboration and leadership coach for major universities, corporations, and federal agencies as well as a longtime student of pioneering researchers and practitioners of the ritualized use of psychedelic medicines in the West. She has led training programs to promote an experimental mindset among teams at NASA and a decade-long crosssector collaboration to reduce toxic chemicals in products, in partnership with Green Science Policy Institute, Harvard University, IKEA, Google, and Kaiser Permanente. Leigh is the coauthor of Golden: The Power of Silence in a World of Noise, published by HarperCollins in the US, Penguin/Random House in the UK, and globally in 11 other languages.

Gael O'Brien on Emotional Culture [Podcast]

Compliance Perspectives

Play Episode Listen Later Aug 2, 2022 9:42


By Adam Turteltaub For decades, if not centuries, the idea of being professional tended to focus on a cold, cognitive approach to work. Emotions were supposed to be secondary to a much more rationale form of management and work environments. In this podcast, Gael O'Brien, executive coach and columnist for Business Ethics Magazine and The Week in Ethics, shares the research of the late Wharton School Professor Sigal Barsade, who examined the impact of emotions in the workplace. Her work focused on how leaders can get culture right. Emotions, in particular compassion, were found to be very important. She also found that employees who feel loved at work perform better. Kindness, caring and feeling connected have a strong impact on employee satisfaction and retention. In fact, she found that employees are 10.4 times more likely to leave because of a toxic culture than they are to depart because of compensation. To create the right environment she is an advocate for an “emotional culture”, which she defines as the emotions necessary for a group to meet its goals. This culture, Barsade found, is transmitted through subtle signals such as facial expression and body language, especially of leaders. That's a challenge in these Zoom times when traditional queues may be missing. To get the right culture she advocates several steps including: Executives verbalizing, modeling and rewarding the emotions they want to cultivate Mangers communicating that information to front-line employees Surveys and interviews that ask employees what emotions they see in colleagues around them It's both an intuitive and counterintuitive approach. To learn more about Professor Barsade's work, read some of her articles in Harvard Business Review (article 1 and article 2). You can also see the video of a talk she gave.

How To Build A Team Culture

David Burkus Presents

Play Episode Listen Later Aug 1, 2022 10:31


Culture is a huge factor in the success or failure of a team. There are cultures so focused on performance and talent that they leave everyone drained. And then there are cultures where individual members, no matter how talented, put the needs of the team over their needs and, as a result, everyone wins. But there's a lot we misunderstand about culture. When you hear many people describe their culture, they point to easily observable elements like symbols, slogans, dress code, foosball tables, or free food. But going all the way back to Edgar Schein's initial research on culture, we find that those observable elements don't matter as much as we think. It's what's below the surface that matters. Culture on a team isn't anything you can see or hear; it's what those observable things point to that matters. The foundational elements of culture are values and beliefs, and observable elements like rituals, rallying cries, and symbols flow from there. In this episode, we'll outline how to build a team culture starting below the surface with what matters and build upon that foundation. 0:00 Introduction 2:16 Values 3:45 Beliefs 5:05 Rituals 6:29 Rallying Cries 7:46 Symbols 9:25 Conclusion It starts with values and beliefs. And leaders of teams with a strong and positive culture put in the work to clarify values and beliefs. The know that putting values first makes culture building happen faster and makes it more likely they'll build a culture that helps everyone do their best work ever. //DO YOUR BEST WORK EVER If you liked this video and you want to help your team do their best work ever, check out the free resources we've compiled at https://davidburkus.com/resources //LIKE THE SHIRT?

In this episode, social ecosystem designer, culture hacker, and facilitator Jean M. Russell joins us to talk about how a participatory and cooperative approach instead of a brutal approach enables us to envision and co-create a world of wellbeing and health. As the founder of the thrivability movement and expert on collective thriving, Jean speaks about THRIVABILITY. She believes this word is a gift. It inspires you to wonder what it looks like in your context and make it show up. What comes alive in you? We dive deep into hedonic habituation and how to avoid falling into it, how to emerge to more positive futures, about co-creation and how to break down the “who” the “how” and the “what”, what a positive environment should look like and how to design it, and how to get set on a more participatory path. “Something about thriving speaks to our inner sense of harmony, abundance, greatness, generativity, aliveness, vitality, well being, and right-placement. What would our lives and the sum of our society be like if we said they were thriving?” If you are interested in open-source software or a better social ecosystem design, this chapter is for you!

We will discuss this in detail, including giving an example of the “accidental diminisher” - someone who has positive intentions but inadvertently diminishes those around them. She also gives some sage advice for parents on how to balance life and family. I'm beyond thrilled to release today's show and can thank Liz enough for being my guest so please enjoy this episode of Insight Out!

Corporate partnerships can serve to expand the pie of joint benefits, improve profits, and gain sustainable competition, but successful partnerships don't often last or come easy. Despite the good intentions of both parties, partnerships often don't pan-out as intended which leaves both sides frustrated and unable to reach their full potential together.Sandy Jap joins the Goizueta Effect Podcast to discuss frenemies in business, including how you can take your partnerships to the next level. She is a Sarah Beth Brown Professor of Marketing at Emory University's Goizueta Business School. Prior to this, she held faculty positions at MIT's Sloan School of Management and the University of Pennsylvania's, the Wharton School. She has published widely on topics such as strategic partnering and organizational relationships, go-to market strategies, and e-procurement. She is the author of Partnering with a Frenemy, a book on the dark side of business relationships. Her work has been featured in the Wall Street Journal, CFO Magazine, and Harvard Business Review.This episode of the Goizueta Effect was co-created in partnership with Emory student Scott Masterson. A Successful Partnership Partnerships are exceedingly important in today's competitive business environment. A successful partnership often creates a “1 + 1 = 3” scenario: an outcome where both companies are better off collaborating than existing separately.  Common Partnerships Business collaboration comes in many forms. Most simply, you can think of manufacturers working with distributors, distributors with wholesalers, and retailers with suppliers.  All distribution activity in the US accounts for over $3 trillion or about 30% of our nominal GDP. In essence, the sales activities that happen between firms that are often the basis of partnerships represent a huge amount of money in our nation and our economy. If there is such a great incentive for upholding the “1 + 1 = 3” principle, then why are partnerships so difficult to maintain? A Not-So Successful Partnership “Frenemies” Once harmonious partners often become frenemies – organizations that pretend to be friends, but that are also enemies and/or rivals.At the beginning of a partnership, often both parties get a lot out of collaboration, but many times this dynamic turns a corner and starts to unravel. The souring process can be rapid or lengthy. For example, Google and Samsung have collaborated for years to maintain a large market share in the cell phone market: Google provides the operating software for the cell phones, while Samsung is the manufacturer of the phone itself. The partnership resulted in beating Apple in market share handily; however, as the partnership became more successful, it bred dependence between the two companies.  Samsung worried that Google might become too strong and that they, as a partner, might desire a larger share of the pie. At the same time, both partners realized they were heavily dependent on the other. To combat this dependence, firms will often do something called counterbalancing. They will try to push back on the feeling of dependence by doing something that makes them feel like they have power.  In the case of Samsung and Google, Samsung began developing an operating system known as Tizen and Google purchased Motorola...and thus, the unraveling began.  Partnership Life Cycles  When academics discuss life cycles, they are talking about how something unfolds over time. In terms of partnerships, typically, a life cycle will have distinct phases that describe the status of how two firms feel about one another. The Awareness Phase In this first phase, two firms become aware of each other and might get to know each other by engaging in small-scale collaboration. The awareness phase often goes well, and there is little at stake for both parties if one were to disengage from the other.  The Buildup Phase The second phase is all about increasing the connection between the two companies. There may be more monetary transactions taking place between the firms and more sharing of knowledge.  The Mature Phase After the buildup phase, companies often get a gauge of optimal interaction and prefer to remain constant at that level. Firms will have stable transactions over a period without one firm encroaching upon the other's territory. In this phase, both firms are reaping the greatest rewards from collaboration, and fluidly interacting for mutual benefit.  The Dissolution Phase The last phase occurs when one firm's growth flattens out. Firms grow suspicious of one another and oftentimes pull back because the benefit isn't as fruitful or apparent as it once was.   Building Rapport: Helpful or Harmful While building rapport is essential and can grease the wheels of a partnership, you can have too much of a good thing. Sometimes rapport between partners can lead them to make irrational economic choices, throw their clients under the bus, and even discard their morals.  In a recent study, Sandy Jap, Goizueta marketing professor Ryan Hamilton, and Wharton professor Diana Robertson were interested in analyzing the relationship between a buyer and a seller. Most often we think that negotiations should begin by building rapport; however, sometimes focusing too heavily on creating a sound relationship with the person with whom you are partnering may not be in your or your client's best interest. The experiment used the common Bullard Houses framework, where negotiators attempt to make a deal between a condo owner and a potential purchaser- a deal that using sound negotiating practices should end at an impasse. What Jap and her team found was that when you build rapport, you and your partner may become so overtaken with the importance of building the relationship that's right in front of you that you'll prioritize that relationship over the requests of the client who may not be present. Instead of accepting an impasse, you will move forward with less-than-optimal terms. In fact, at times, the study reported negotiators engaging in unethical behaviors such as lying to one another, misrepresenting details, and over-promising just to appease the other person. Ultimately, the result of these behaviors was that the client's best interests were compromised.  Tips to Preserving Partnerships: Extending the Mature Phase The Building Blocks Ultimately, organizations are made up of people. We can think of the relationships between people as the building blocks for what's happening at an organizational level. In partnerships, relationships need healthy frequency, a controlled amount of positive rapport, and an appropriate level of clarity in mutually beneficial goals. Relationships at any level take effort from both sides – and this is true for businesses too.  Safeguard Interests Partners can use several tools to ensure they reap the benefits of collaboration. The most common safeguard is to use a contract and identify what happens when things do or do not work out.   A relationship map is a more in-depth tool that sets expectations upfront. As an example, at Cisco they start all relationships by asking questions like:  Conflict  If conflict comes up, how will it be resolved?   What would be a suitable escalation path?   Who's going to get involved?   What's the speed of escalation in various situations?  Changes  How can we effectively manage changes and assumptions?  What's the framework for discussing changes in goals, desires or needs?  Investments  What if we have long term investments at stake? How will we handle that?  How will we remedy investment imbalances?   Communication  How often should we be in communication? Weekly? Monthly? Quarterly?  What are the follow up protocols?   Who at various levels of the organization should be talking to whom?   When it comes to having a successful partnership, you need to put the work in. You can either pay the price upfront in terms of establishing it well or you can pay the price on the back end when everything falls apart.  Reciprocal Investing: The Golden Bullet? Research shows that one of the main ways that partnerships succeed is through reciprocal investment. When organizations dedicate resources to preserving the relationship: human capital, equipment, and new logistical patterns, this goes a long way in strengthening the partnership. Monetary and temporal investments ensure both parties are feeling valued and important, but these investments must be non-fungible: the organization cannot just take those investments and easily redeploy them to another relationship; they lose value if either partner walks away.   Exiting Respectfully: Dissolution is Sometimes Inevitable When two firms agree to disengage from collaboration, they should consider the real reasons for dissolution. Each partner needs to be upfront about their perspective and challenges to ensure the maintenance of a positive reputation for future partnerships: it is mutually beneficial to exit respectfully.  To learn more about Goizueta Business School and how principled leaders are driving positive change in business and society, visit goizueta.emory.edu.

To lead in the Digital Age, you need to become a Digital Collaborator. The best way to learn anything quickly is to put yourself in a situation where not doing it isn't an option. Listen to this episode to learn what you can do to start collaborating with tech teams and take your career to the next level. Learning notes from this episode: If you work in a corporate, set up a weekly meeting with technologists and your team to discuss what they're working on and how it impacts scale, efficiency, and customer satisfaction. This public commitment to collaboration removes your choice to delay. For example, if you work in marketing, set up regular meeting with the data science team and begin by outlining your goals for the year and where you see the biggest bottle necks. While the data science team might not have solutions right away, this will lay the foundations for future collaboration.  Another way to do become a Digital Collaborator is to volunteer with a tech start-up. You could join as an advisor to share your expertise and network, in exchange for sitting in on product meetings and learning.  If you're not yet at the level where your expertise or network are coveted by a start-up, just volunteer your time. You can help manage their events, social media or help them with customer service. In exchange, say that you want to sit in on a product meeting, or have a 30 minute meeting per week with the head of product or the CTO to ask them questions.  Read Sophia's Harvard Business Review article: Coding Isn't a Necessary Leadership Skill — But Digital Literacy Is Get your FREE guide to the top 10 concepts non-technical leaders need to work with developers, designers and data scientists.  ----- If you like learning about how tech products and profits get made, you'll like our newsletter.

Teamwork is impossible without communication. Teams have to share information; they have to share ideas. Without communication, teams can't coordinate tasks. They can't help each other; they can't do anything other than work alone in silence. Since communication is so vital to teamwork, it's no surprise that the quality of communication affects the level of performance of a team so strongly. There's a big difference between communication on an average team and communication on a high performing one. So, it's worth examining what high performing teams do differently in terms of communication. Fortunately, researchers have been studying those differences on teams large and small for several decades now. In this article, we'll outline four differences in how great teams communicate. 0:00 Introduction 1:24 Great teams communicate equally 2:38 Great teams communicate informally 4:06 Great teams communicate externally 5:19 Great teams communicate in bursts 6:17 Conclusion Many average teams communicate in one of these four methods, so some of this may sound familiar. But other methods may seem downright odd. Each communication method, however, has been shown to enhance collaboration. And when all four combine you have a team that's using their best communication ever to do their best work ever. //DO YOUR BEST WORK EVER If you liked this video and you want to help your team do their best work ever, check out the free resources we've compiled at https://davidburkus.com/resources //LIKE THE SHIRT?
