From my experience, both in the RAAF and in the corporate world, trust is at the core of a team's ability to work together efficiently and effectively. Simon Sinekand Patrick Lencioni are both clear about the importance of trust for building a team, and the absence of trust being the first obstacle of a group to overcome.Trust can be built quickly, and eroded just as fast.

Of the 4 options provided, 56% of those surveyed said that ‘building effective teams’ was most required right now. This finding has been reinforced as we spoke to leaders in workshops and one-on-one coaching in recent weeks. Quite simply, the changing circumstances that we face...

When a Leadership Group Becomes a Team
Are you part of a group or are you part of a team?

Great Leaders adapt to their environment
Great leadership is about adjusting and adapting to your environment, not staying the same and hoping people will get 'back to normal'. Leaders know that both their internal and external business environments have changed with COVID19.

Wednesday is all about gratitude at Kameleons - Developing Leaders. It is a privilege to work with amazing leaders that not only seek to challenge themselves, but also seek to make a difference for their teams. When you hear that a team has pulled together, trust has been gained and the leader feels more empowered - it reinforces why I love doing what I do. Thank you for the recommendati...

Have you had a realisation like this in the last couple of weeks? This was a timely reminder in a post from Peter Horrocks. There have been so many changes to routines and patterns - and while plenty have impacts and hardships on many - some changes to the routine have been for the better.For me, the lower graphic could have broken hard work into even smaller segments -many of which I ha...

👩‍👧‍👦👨‍👨‍👦‍👦 Your team will have changed dramatically in the last 8 weeks - beyond schooling arrangements and the comfort / discomfort of working from home or the hours worked.

Your team members may have a very different relationship with: 🔹You - as both leader, mentor, pe...
