Mastering Communication & Relationship Dynamics
In the second episode of our two-part series with Janna Stam, we discuss all things communication and relationship dynamics. We dive into the realm of effective communication, the significance of trust, both in leadership and in our personal lives, and also the art of relationship building and team dynamics. Below are highlights from our discussion.
Listening plays a critical role in fostering trust and forming tight-knit teams capable of exceptional performance. Brian and Dr Linda Schubring shed some light on how listening shapes trust and forms the cornerstone of meaningful connections. Listening is about giving value, shout outs, and recognizing the lived values in others. It encapsulates the essence of appreciative leadership styles.
By valuing and recognizing the diverse perspectives of others, leaders can create a harmonious balance between autonomy and accountability, shaping an environment that nurtures growth and self-reflection.
Autonomy & Accountability
In our conversation, we explore the intricate balance between autonomy and accountability within teams. Brian talks about how autonomy and accountability foster a healthy, productive work environment and segues into the delicate art of creating challenges and difficulties in team settings.
As leaders, we want to aim to push boundaries while also maintaining a supportive atmosphere. We want to give people things within or just barely beyond their reach to help them grow.
Breaking & Rebuilding Strengths
Janna also leads us into discussion about the delicate practice of ‘breaking and rebuilding’ Strengths. This is a strategy that pushes us beyond our comfort zones for personal and professional advancement.
