Rules of Engagement for Health Teams

Episode #014 Host: Tammy J. Bond

We learned how to engage with others in a healthy way as children, but when we entered the workforce as adults, we seem to have left those rules of engagement behind. In today’s episode of Playing In The Sandbox, I’ll be discussing how to build a healthy set of rules for you and your team.

Without clear rules of engagement, you probably don’t have a healthy team. Here’s the rules of engagement in the sandbox, for healthy teams:

  1. Don’t throw sand. Don’t be brazen or rude to other people.
  2. Don’t steal the shovels. Make sure everyone has access to the tools they need.
  3. Don’t knock over someone else’s castle. Don’t create problems for team members.
  4. Don’t hoard all of the resources, leaving people without the essentials to do their job.

In today's swift-moving employee market leaders are far too often putting people that are technically good at their jobs into leadership positions, without first developing them on how to be leaders of people.

How do you course correct, or better yet make sure you don’t make that common mistake? Develop your people to lead others from the moment they join your team. For more tools on how to develop others around you, contact us today.
