Get Connected



From Twitter

A free practical guide to grow your team culture.

Get Connected has the ambition to recreate those special moments in teams and organisations that we all love to be part of. Times when you felt connected to the moment, the challenge, the task, the team and to yourself. It might have been a big challenge and at the same time was all understandable, meaningful and manageable. You felt connected! The goal of ‘Get Connected’ is to address the theory and the way of working to enable you to recreate the circumstances that resulted in such a successful and fulfilling work experience. Many leaders are waking up to the fact that the most important factor for the success of their team or organisation is culture (Culture = the values, beliefs and behaviours of a group). The way we behave together can make or break an organisation

If you want a harvest in a year, grow a crop…
If you want a harvest in ten years, grow a tree…
If you want a harvest that will last for a life time, grow people.” 

-Chinese Proverb

This book is not a mechanical manual to follow and live by, but an illustration of an organic process to live through. With a set of practical processes and tools, which we find most effective through our collective experiences for team development, we intend to provide you with a baseline platform to experiment with and innovate from. It is a tool kit with words, not facilitation skills with senses. We ask you to play with it, trust your intuitive judgement, and discover what works or not through trial and error. Growing your team is an organic living process, which requires you to tap into the inner knowing of your team and to leverage group intelligence to co-create and co-evolve. We ask you to stay open to learn and strive to improve with humility.

This checklist provides a simple overview of what you can do to use the books Get Connected and Dynamics of Change when you want to either grow a shared culture, lead people through change or both.
