Today’s organisations and value chains are complex. We work across teams and functions, typically both with external and internal partners. We create value by working together more than ever and our ability to collaborate is a competitive advantage. Most organisations know how important collaboration is, but many organisations and teams still struggle getting this crucial element right. Collaboration is hard. Human beings are complex, and many inherently human factors will automatically challenge collaboration. When we add the organisational complexities, which is often underestimated, we can be faced with a very difficult environment for teams to collaborate in.
How can we help?
At More of You we use a variety of tools in order to support teams. We aim to elevate collaboration levels, resulting in teams getting more out of working together, both in terms of enjoyment and in terms of business impact. Depending on your needs, we work by bringing consciousness to what is unconscious, e.g. how our biases impact how we relate and work together. We work with the team’s culture and agreed ways of working and explore how a Team Charter can create a framework for everyone to know what is expected. More of You can also support teams in clarifying the structures relevant for a good collaboration, in terms of meeting flow and meeting content.
By focusing both on the inside and the outside of collaboration, we create a platform whereby the team will get much more out of their collaboration, and the mix of methods will sustain the team’s efforts in keeping the collaboration at the right, relevant level for all parties involved.
