Achieving Team Satisfaction with Mike Guiler and Justin Thatil Agile Coaches' Corner

    • Business

This week, Dan Neumann is joined by his colleagues Mike Guiler and Justin Thatil to talk about the dopamine and satisfaction that follow after accomplishing a goal; reaching a purpose is very satisfying and can be conquered in and out of the work environment.
 
In this episode, Dan, Mike, and Justin explore the process of identifying the goal that you want to achieve from a behavioral and an outcome perspective, followed by working towards the objective, to finally arriving at the conquering of the goal and experiencing that rush of excitement we all enjoy so much.
 
Key Takeaways
Reaching a goal is a dopamine booster. Firstly, the goal needs to be identified. What are you trying to achieve? Secondly, chose the priorities: what has the most value? Thirdly, you can start working towards achieving that goal. Seeking the next win can be addictive. It is important to take a moment to celebrate your victories (even the small wins)! Try to avoid falling into the habit of always looking at what comes next. Reaching a business outcome is a result of the internal satisfaction of a Team that was working towards that goal. Seek the satisfaction of the Team; happier people do better work, are more productive, and stick with the organization longer. Happier Team members make customers happier, it just becomes a self-fulfilling loop. If a Team is overworking it will eventually start working less effectively. Measure your achievements. Did your plan turn out as expected? Measure that process so you can reproduce that expected outcome.
