An Extraordinary Group…

Achieves outstanding results while members, individually or collectively experience a profound shift in how they see their world.

c. Bellman and Ryan, 2009


Application

  • Think of a group you lead on a regular basis.

  • The next time you bring your group together, how might you lead this group differently if you intentionally applied:

    • Compelling Purpose

    • Shared Leadership

    • Embracing Differences

    • Just-enough Structure

  • What one thing willyou do?

c. Bellman and Ryan, 2009


The Bottom Line

  • Especially during challenging times:

    • Our organizations need our best, most creative and collaborative work

    • We, as people, need our groups to be the place where we can contribute, achieve, connect, and grow.

  • Life is too short to spend time in groups that do not fulfill their promise.
