On this page you'll find descriptions of each of the 8 categories of Collaborative Group Behaviors. For examples, see here.
For a full background on Collaborative Group Behaviors, see here.
The Collaborative Group Behaviors fall into the following 8 categories.
Effective Interpersonal Relationships
High Quality Communication
Collaborative Group Behaviors Development and Training
All Eight Categories are covered by dozens of (ready-made and provided) new behaviors called Collaborative Group Behaviors. I have done the heavy lifting by road testing all of these behaviors.
Each category of behaviors has a list of specific behaviors for implementation.
Each behavior has:
A background statement
A list of specific behaviors that if demonstrated will move the individual’s performance scores up on their evaluation.
A list of recovery behaviors and recovery approaches their supervisor can help them with if their performance stumbles.
Leadership needs to give people a sense of direction and provide important training so group members can influence outcomes by making mission-centered independent decisions.
Group members are given training on the definition of mission success and the values, and empowering themselves to create outcomes, so when the needs change, you can adapt what you know to what you have just discovered and modify your approach to get the same successful result in a different landscape.
By training in Mission and Values Behaviors, every group member can carry the group forward at the group’s point of greatest need. It’s mission success, one well-trained person at a time.
Leadership needs to give people a sense of safety, dignity and respect and provide important training so group members can influence outcomes by understanding the significant importance of respectful behavior and the positive impact it has on our brains.
Leadership will directly interject in situations of public demonstrations of disrespect and inappropriate behavior according to Collaborative Group Behaviors. The public forum will no longer be ruled by unruly behavior. Bullying is a thing of the past with Collaborative Group Behaviors. Leadership will start a recognition process and program for recognizing positive performance.
Group members are trained on the appropriate behaviors to use and the inappropriate behaviors to avoid. Individuals need to demonstrate appropriate behavior in the group culture so that during periods of change, you still have the group psychologically affirming your safety within the group.
Every group member can carry the group forward at the point of greatest group need through training in Culture behaviors. It’s mission success, one well-trained person at a time.
EFFECTIVE INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS
Leadership needs to give people insight on the critical nature of building professional relationships and provide important training so group members can influence outcomes by developing trusting relationships.
This training demonstrates how to create and maintain one on one collaboration through effective interpersonal relationships so regardless of how the team needs to be reorganized, people are ready to take on the challenge due to their durable collaborative relationships.
Every group member can carry the group forward at the point of greatest group need through training in Effective Interpersonal Relationships. It’s mission success one well-trained person at a time.
HIGH QUALITY COMMUNICATION
Leadership needs to create and emulate effective communication and provide important training to the group, and group members can influence outcomes by using communication to drive and respond to action.
Learn how to talk and how to listen using high quality communication. If the group is to survive periods of change and uncertainty, then our conversation has to keep pace with our changing conditions. Using high quality communication, we can thrive during periods of massive change and come out the end still understanding each other.
Every group member can carry the group forward at the point of greatest group need through training in High Quality Communication. It’s mission success, one well-trained person at a time.
Leadership needs to develop everyone’s technical skill sets and provide important training so group members can fulfill their obligations as the expert they are and influence outcomes by asserting that expertise.
This training teaches you how you need to fulfill your specific technical competency role at all times. Because when times change, everybody knowing how to do their job becomes even more important.
Every group member can carry the group forward at the point of greatest group need through training in Technical Competency. It’s mission success, one well-trained person at a time.
Leadership needs to develop everyone’s ability to maintain and increase productivity and provide important training so group members can develop new and better operating procedures as the experts they are. By doing so, they’ll influence outcomes by develop time-saving and effort-saving ideas for improvement.
Productivity training teaches you how to get the needed job done under the worst possible circumstances by recreating an environment, to the extent possible, which pushes group productivity forward by working smarter.
Every group member can carry the group forward at the point of greatest group need by training the group on Work-Smart Productivity. It’s mission success, one well-trained person at a time.
Leadership needs to train everyone to understand the reasons why some groups avoid problem solving, then train them in the eight-step problem solving process. Once trained, group members can assist in developing solutions and removing the roadblocks that are impediments to progress.
This training teaches the group how to solve problems effectively, so that during unprecedented situations, the group produces the most effective solutions in a timely manner, using a collaborative approach.
Every group member can carry the group forward at the point of greatest group need by training the group on Effective Problem Solving techniques. It’s mission success, one well-trained person at a time.
Leadership first needs to train everyone in how to constantly improve process performance and people performance. Then, train them in methods of developing ideas for improvement and helping with recovery behavior when a person’s performance stumbles.
Individuals will learn how to innovate in the face of new conditions and constantly modify one’s approach to task execution through feedback, based on actual conditions. A “high skill” and “high desire” level will allow the group to focus on the actual conditions and near automatic modification to task execution will occur. This process is called continuous improvement, and keeps moving forward, regardless of how conditions change. Also, people are never left behind when they need help recovering from less than standard performance.
Every group member can carry the group forward just when the group needs it the most by training in Continuous Improvement and learning that Recovery Training is now used long before reprimand in situations when performance drops below minimum standards. It’s mission success, one well-trained person at a time.
Collaborative Group Behaviors Performance Expectations provided for performance evaluations:
The work isn’t complete until all the Collaborative Group Behaviors are available to be inserted into the performance evaluations for future performance measurement. These performance expectations tie directly to creating individual and group success.
All Eight Categories are covered by dozens of (ready-made and provided) new behaviors called Collaborative Group Behaviors.
I have done the heavy lifting by road testing all of these behaviors. They work.
