Attempts to improve the quality of collaboration and effectiveness of teams in organizations are frequently expensive, time consuming and not always productive. This is mainly because most such attempts are trying to deal with this situation through discussion, logic, reasoning, etc.
But the underlying problems that cause ineffectiveness with teams are mostly emotional. They are due to the emotional incompetence of some or all of the team members.
You’ve been there. You know what it’s like. One or more people on the team has their own agenda. They want to control what happens or they don’t want to rock the boat so they keep quiet and don’t object to things even when they feel that what’s happening isn’t right. Ego’s clash. Conflicts occur. Sometimes a team really isn’t a team but just a collection of people who are supposed to be cooperating and collaborating for the benefit of the organization but… it isn’t happening or it’s not happening optimally.
Is there really an effective solution to these kinds of problems?
Yes, there is.
The basic underlying problem in such situations is that the team members are not emotionally competent. They are operating out of fears, compensations for these fears and making decisions that are a result of deeply ingrained conditioning that’s been in them their whole life. In fact the conditioning is so well implanted that most people would thing that it is just in the person’s nature… it’s just who they are.
But it isn’t who they are. It’s just a deep form of conditioning that makes them shy or controlling or confrontational, etc.
Until now, these deep seated patterns of conditioning have been difficult or seemed impossible to change.
But now with Human Software Engineering these deep seated patterns of conditioned behavior can be debugged and upgraded so that the underlying cause of these non-collaborative, non-cooperative behaviors is eliminated.
The result – There’s no longer any need for fear based, controlling or aggressive behaviors. It becomes possible to let go of old personal agenda’s and actually be able to be a cooperative and effective team member.
HSE’s training in emotional competence is unique in the world today. You don’t just learn how to understand your own and other people’s emotions. You learn how to clearly recognized the distinction between useful and not-useful emotions and how to get rid of the not-useful emotions so thoroughly that they don’t come back, as amazing as that may seem. It’s quite possible. And now with HSE it’s actually… easy.
So the answer to having extraordinary teams is to have extraordinary team members who can operate from a place of peace within themselves so that their power isn’t aggression or ego based attempts to control or dominate, or fears of being not accepted or appreciated that cause people to hold back. Instead people become self-reliant contributors so they can both contribute and adapt and be in synergy rather than dominate or isolate or any of the other unproductive behaviors that sabotage effective teams.
