What distinguishes exceptional teams and team leaders from the rest? Each year, businesses invest billions of dollars in programs and ideas to improve leader and team performance. Yet, most of those programs fail to turn ideas into the habits that lead to more effective, higher-performing teams. Dr. Jeb Hurley's groundbreaking research into motivation, engagement, and team effectiveness identified the one habit that sets exceptional teams and team leaders apart from the rest. That habit focuses on key relationships, and sits at the heart of an architecture used by the most highly-effective teams. The ONE Habit blog and podcast explores the Architecture of Highly-Effective Teams and the one habit shared by exceptional team leaders, along with current team leadership and effectiveness research, and how to apply these concepts to your organization.

    Brain Science is Turning Feedback Inside-out

    Developed and used properly, employee surveys can provide a powerful tool for both predicting behaviors and creating rich, transformational coaching conversations. Unfortunately, most surveys fall short of providing the feedback that is most needed for modern team success.

    The Cost of Silence

    The Cost of Silence

    Leaders are told over and over the importance and benefits of encouraging candid, healthy employee voice. They are told that they should surround themselves with people of diverse perspectives who can disagree without fear of retaliation. When they don’t hold themselves to the same standard, they abdicate an essential leadership responsibility.

    Purpose by Design

    Purpose by Design

    From existentialist reflections on life and work, to building a case for how office layout and furniture choices can contribute to shared purpose and prosperity, there is no lack of advice on how to go about finding greater purpose in one’s work. However, for most first-level team leaders and mid-level managers, over-loaded days and limited access to coaching resources leave little hope for meaningful change in a leader’s personality and behavior.

While not a style that many aspire to emulate, it is nonetheless one of the most pervasive. One particularly significant example is what gets said about team development versus what gets done. Virtually every leader touts a deep belief in teams and teamwork, and preaches the importance of it. The research that supports their enthusiasm is incontrovertible. Yet, most organizations do little to train their team leaders, especially first-level leaders, in how to develop and maintain high performance teams.

    Aristotle’s Mirror: Reality Undistorted

    It would be the unusual leader who would admit that they don’t aspire to build energized engaged teams that deliver exceptional performance. Yet, across the leadership literature, research shows that results often fall short of aspirations. When I ask team leaders about the gap between their aspirations and reality, they give a variety of reasons for their team’s performance. A few leaders are reflective and introspective and ‘own the gap’. Most are quick to tell me why their team is superior, then go on to describe external factors beyond their control that lead to disappointing results.

    What Turns Your People On?

    How often have you heard observations like “my people don’t seem to be fully engaged” or, “my team needs more energy”? While the symptoms of lacking motivation may be easy to identify, solutions are hard to find – especially solutions that are practical and validated by research.
