“Being an effective team requires each individual member to understand how they connect – both to one another as members, and to those within the wider system that makes up their organisational stakeholder network. Part of our work is to help them to make sense of all that and thus to locate themselves more effectively within the system in which they work.
I created our Connectivity model and programmes as a way of helping our clients more easily understand what makes themselves and their colleagues tick.”
“I came across several fascinating papers on Reinforcement Learning, an approach in which the learner is not taught which actions to take, but instead must discover for her or himself which activities will yield the maximum reward. This discipline has been used in several exciting Machine Learning initiatives, producing quite startling results, and seems to me to be relevant to leaders and teams seeking to achieve significant performance levels in the VUCA environment in which we all now work.
I developed our Team Effectiveness diagnostic and team coaching models with this approach to learning in mind.”
