Incredible ideas are often the result of relationships built on mutual trust and respect. You can help to encourage such collaboration and ideas by following these simple guidelines:
Ask your colleagues to discuss the strengths and opportunities they’re looking to build on.
Create a team charter. Identify your team’s goals/expectations and assign responsibilities based on strengths/areas of focus.
Strongly encourage counterpoints and differing points of view during meetings. Too much consensus can often be counterproductive.
Take time to celebrate. Whether you’ve had a brilliant lightbulb moment, or you're simply wrapping up for the day, make sure to come together and applaud the progress that you've all made together.
