As a sole individual or part of a team, you need to connect YOUR dots before the team dots can be fully understood and connected. How to get help discover and connect them in a safe environment, where all aspects of your “connection process” can be mirrored in a sounding board. This setting must build on trust, mutual openness, dialogue, courage and curiosity where the dots can be investigated and questioned by creative minds! The dots are very often in the form of conflicting values, stakeholder impact and personal beliefs, which have been taught or forced upon you, perhaps even suppressing your own authentic values. The same is true for a team where trust building has been non-existent, forcing conflicts to go undisclosed. A facilitator can be the oil in the honing process of development.
