Authentic Collaboration – winning through combined effort


Team members and managers aren’t always the best at working together when the drive to achieve and ‘claim the win’ is linked to personal achievement goals. That’s a dilemma for many organisations. How do I encourage team effort and collaboration yet recognise and reward individual contribution? The great news is there is a way – using a system based on motivational objectives and key results and it’s delivered 10x growth value for some of the world’s largest and most successful organisations such as Intel, Google, LinkedIn, Spotify, Twitter and Microsoft.
