Team connectivity is about working together best possible – much more than just sharing office space. It is about tuning into each other, mutual trust and the ability to lead and being led by others.
In music it is very obvious whether an ensemble is just a group of highly skilled individuals sitting together playing the same tune or if they are a team profoundly connected. The team truly connected share the same musical vision and who are willing to lead and be lead by the rest of the team.
Team performance in music is naked and that makes it the perfect lab for business teams
In business the difference between the average teams and those who sparkle and shine is not as obvious as in music. And this is exactly why the musical setting is a perfect laboratory for business teams to explore and experiement with their team connectivity. And not to forget: It is also a chance to challenge themselves as a team!
Our Brass In Tune musicians know their own skills and connectivity well enough to play with their eyes closed. That forces them to tune in and listen for real. Working with eyes closed is not a goal for business teams, however.
Watch what team connectivity taken to the extreme level looks like:
The teamwork tools you learn
- Tune In and True Listening – Most people say they’re really good listeners. But truth is, way too often we listen for what we want to hear ourselves. So instead of unconditional listening, we listen for something that benefits our own agenda immediately. However, this is not how we reach the best and most surprising goals… when we listen for something we already know, how can new things happen? We teach you how to lean in, tune in and listen for real with the Tune In Exercise.
- Action Reaction Pattern – We sharpen your senses to how much impact you have as individuals and team when you take a clear initiative. We show you how short amount of time there is from intention to result with our Action Reaction Pattern test.
- Lead and being led by others – We practice the intentional and mindful shift between the single team members acting as soloist/leaders and ensemble/team members.
- Check In Strategies – Checking in is both a social and professional activity that ties the team closer together and build trust. We provide you with different Check In Strategies.
- Feedback techniques – Feedback is nescessary if we want to improve. Musicians live in a constant state of feedback and because music is so close to everybody’s personalities and passion, feedback can be a minefield if you don’t do it the right way. We provide you with concrete feedback strategies
- Team Performance – When you are on stage together, it’s important that you know how to boost the overall performance – also when you don’t say a word. We teach you how to orchestrate the perfect team performance that will make a long lasting impact.
