About the Author

As a St. Louis area Expert EOS Implementer®, Author and Speaker, Jeanet Wade has helped businesses struggling with complexity and leadership alignment to become focused as a team on outcome achievement. MORE >>

Clarity – Without clarity, human beings are confused. People on teams must understand the purpose or vision of the team/organization, their role in it, and the outcomes/goals.

Connection – People need to know that they belong on the team and in the organization. When feeling disconnected they become depressed, unenthused, dysfunctional, etc.

Contribution – Successful outcomes from people on teams comes from how they work together and leverage their natural abilities and skills. When not contributing, people can distract the team or even detract from it.

Challenge – People need to be challenged to continuously improve and get to new levels of job mastery. Coaching on targeted results, new skills, and areas of improvement can minimize complacency on the team and retain top talent.       

CONSIDERATION – The need to be heard, acknowledged, and appreciated drives people on teams to have high trust, be vulnerable with one another, and are far more unified and successful than other teams. When humans are not considered they feel disregarded and can quickly become nonproductive.

Confidence – Confidence leads to new capability and commitment, and is the best route to meaningful ideas
and innovation. When your team stands in a place of confidence and bravery there is less fear, apprehension and doubt. Your organization can go forward, pivot faster, and nurture new levels of results.

She does it with grace, wit, and approachability, sharing her vivid stories freely so that we may learn from them.”
