teamwork among executives at a fast-food company
You are the Chief Operating Officer, and it is clear that riding on the
coattails of your corporation's long-standing reputation no longer guarantees
success. While your 11 direct reports are brilliant in many ways, they do
not operate as a team, and individual fiefdoms run rampant.
DN1 designed and facilitated a series of visioning and strategic
planning meetings for this group to solidify its vision, goals and roles.
Then, we tackled the team-building dilemma. It's funny how climbing a telephone
pole while tethered to your colleagues, or scaling a 20-foot wall blindfolded
helps people understand the value of teamwork in a very literal way.
Through these team-building activities and follow-up meetings, this group
not only succeeded in creating a three-year plan, but coalesced as a productive
team to achieve the ambitious goals of the COO.
