McChrystal Group's guide to building high performing teams with intentionality
Leverage our playbook to implement strategies to focus on intentionally tailoring the working environment to empower your teams to win. The playbook provides practical steps to intentionally initiate productive processes, utilize technological solutions, and keep your people engaged and invested in the success of the organization – and their own contributions to it.
The U.S. Special Operations Forces have a philosophy – “slow is smooth, and smooth is fast.” Members of those teams are often in situations in which moving fast is imperative. Survival depends on quick decision making and rapid responses. However, even in the direst circumstances, they recognize that rushing without purpose and intent can be detrimental. This principle applies to crises that necessitate teams and organizations to deliberately coordinate their actions and move in unison towards an objective to respond effectively to threats and risks. “Slowness” at the micro level translates into “smoothness” at the macro level.
We have developed Weekly Whiteboards, case studies, webinars, podcast episodes, and an actionable playbook to help leaders successfully take a "slow is smooth, smooth is fast" approach.
