Pace yourself and don’t snap at your teammates: sled dog wisdom for the workplace
Boring meetings? Disengaged teams? Lifeless leadership? Shake it up. The Wild at work approach reminds us that working together doesn’t have to be so complicated. At the end of the day, leadership and teamwork boil down to engaging a wide range of laughable, but dedicated personalities, calling out strengths, and figuring out how to work together effectively.
- Explore and highlight the strengths and skills of each individual in your group.
- Strengthen teams and leaders through self-knowledge, compassionate presence, and courageous conversations.
- Develop high-performing teams that dare to engage, speak up, and care.
- Build a Wild work culture where individuals, teams, and the organization itself incorporate the essential elements of being Wildly Inspiring, Wildly Agile, Wildly Original, Wildly Welcoming, and Wildly Generous.
They all pull, but they’re not all the same: Sled dogs, diversity, and the art of working together
Your organization may already have diversity and inclusion initiatives for groups around gender, ethnicity, age, and preferences. The best organizations are finding new ways to engage, connect, and appreciate the individuality, culture, and humanity of everyone on their team. The Wild approach to diversity not only helps uncover assumptions, but also helps us recognize and call out the individual talent and originality that help organizations thrive and grow.
- Improve communication through self-awareness and appreciating differences.
- Learn to approach diversity with curiosity and humility, leading with your strengths and calling out the strengths of the individuals on your team.
- Gain greater awareness of your own impact on others and fresh inspiration about the importance of understanding one another.
- Unleash your Wild side (free, authentic, creative, present, bold) at work, encourage it in your team, and see how everyone benefits, including the business.
