Establish practices to help diverse team members with different personalities, perspectives, and interpersonal dynamics work well together.
Engage constructively is an HET toolkit that helps teams work better together. Teams are made up of people, people have personalities and feelings, and interpersonal dynamics affect our ability to work together productively. The HET Working Agreements tool helps you set the stage for how your team expects to work together. Then, when team dynamics inevitably get difficult, the Working Agreements give your team a reference point and a shared language for identifying what has gone wrong and how to fix it. When people avoid difficult conversations, they will sometimes find ways to stop working with the other person. Other HET team engagement tools include the Issue Clearing Script, learning how to give and receive feedback, how personality types affect interpersonal dynamics, and how to steer a team through periodic storms that naturally occur as a part of team development.
You can’t control anyone but yourself (and sometimes not even that).
