Do you keep trying to integrate new collaborative technologies into teamwork, with the hopes that your team will be more productive?
If your team could speed up work and reduce operations costs, how would that impact your company’s bottom line?
As it stands, does everyone tend to use collaborative tools differently? Do they argue about “what works best,” and frequently drag projects, documentation, and other work from tool to tool?
When this is the case, teams often feel disheartened and struggle with trust. A team with low trust will rarely get the most value out of online tools, regardless of how amazing the tools may be.
We wouldn’t expect professional athletes to be effective without training and strategy. In addition to the latest technology, they have access to coaches, nutritionists, trainers, videographers, psychiatrists, and more.
Sports teams learn and practice common behaviors, skills, and processes so they can operate like finely tuned machines. Everything is structured to guarantee maximum performance. Generous guidance and mentorship are provided for teams of 2 to 15 players.
Ask yourself… what would happen if YOUR TEAM trained to work together this way?
Benefit 1: With Trust Changers, it doesn’t matter whether a team works online together part time or full time. Colleagues suffering from low trust and poor collaborative-technology use can change their trajectory to become more comfortable and effective using online tools as a team.
Benefit 2: As the team builds trust and improves online communications and collaborations, work will speed up and operational overhead will go down.
