No matter the size, industry, or purpose of an organization, effective teamwork is a key component of success. Teams today are more diverse than ever, with individuals of different generations, backgrounds, and mindsets coming together to meet constantly increasing demands for productivity, creativity, and collaboration. In most cases, people want to succeed, and want to contribute to the success of the organization and of their colleagues. So why is internal conflict so prevalent, and such a barrier to positive collaboration and trust? Each individual has a unique motivational DNA that not only drives their own behavior, but also shapes how they interpret the actions of others. Revealing these motivations and developing a team-wide understanding of how these motivations align or mutual understanding of them can be a catalyst for transformational team development.
