How do you relate to your teams

Twelve days ago was the launch of the Good Leadership Breakfast version 3.0. The pandemic accelerated the use of interactive technology in how we all work and play, so, we were compelled to incorporate online and app-based research into the Breakfast model. We polled a group of professionals from all across the US and then compared that data to the data collected in the ballroom. Our fantastic coach Kelsey Meyer Schalkle facilitated the conversation.

Two powerful questions:

One poll question was, “Since the pandemic began, do you feel like your team members know you personally and professionally:”

  • More than before
  • The same as before
  • Less than before

The pre-breakfast data showed that only 23% of people thought they knew their team members more than before. Compare that to the whopping 70% who answered “more than before” in the ballroom – the difference is significant. This data tells us that those who choose to invest the time in their leadership and in their employees by attending the breakfast, have created real and tangible relationships over those not in the room.

Another question, “Does your team leader spread positivity and encouragement while driving the team towards expected results?”

  • Yes
  • No
  • Sometimes

The pre-breakfast data showed that 53% said yes, 16% said no, and 31% said sometimes. In the room,  76% said yes, 4% said no and 19% said sometimes. Once again the leaders and team members who found themselves at the breakfast are leaders who know how positivity causes goodness to pay in business.
