3 Simple Rules For Effective Teams

While Kathleen Eisenhardt with the Stanford Graduate School of Business speaks about how focusing on 3 simple rules is a signature of effective teams, the underlying thinking is a best practice for individuals, too.

How does this apply to our client’s world?  We coach clients to focus on 3 simple techniques on a daily basis.  A client might be focused on:

  1. Using silence instead of verbal filler.
    This principle applies to any moment when they are unclear about what to say next.
  2. Having a clear and simple Main Takeaway Sentence

  3. Speaking with more energy and conviction.
