And, because disruption drives disconnection when your team is in a turbulent environment, it needs a special kind of conversation to help it think, stay and work together. Such a conversation doesn’t happen by default, it happens by design.

• Have you ever worked somewhere where team building was done once a year?
• How often do your team’s conversations build trust, alignment and cohesion?
By the way, if you want to lead conversations that encourage your team to take bigger steps and tackle bigger challenges every day, you’ll find my latest book 𝐶𝑢𝑟𝑙𝑦 𝐶𝑜𝑛𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑠𝑎𝑡𝑖𝑜𝑛𝑠 𝑓𝑜𝑟 𝑇𝑒𝑎𝑚𝑠 invaluable. I’ve included a link in the comments.
