CO-ELEVATION FOR SUCCESS
Co-Elevation: The New Way to Collaborate. Collaboration is no longer enough. Now, more than ever, the world is about managing networks to achieve specific outcomes. Networks are the basis for how work gets done: for one to succeed, everyone must succeed, which requires a new level of commitment and accountability. It requires everyone to co-elevate their teammates.
Relationship Action Plan
The Relationship Action Plan, or the RAP, is an algorithm that enables you to prioritize who you must build a relationship with, and how to do that in a deep, meaningful and authentic way. Rob describes how this practice focuses your mindset and behavior on the people that are most impactful to your goal, all while leading with generosity.
The Future of Work
The future of work is organized around temporary teams focused on the achievement of a specific goal or outcome. Reporting lines become more and more irrelevant and the power of influence becomes your success driver. Small teams come together for a specific purpose, which means we must be more successful developing relationships with these people. Rob highlights how we cannot be restricted by hierarchy and management, how we must talk with whomever we need to get something done – and do it right. One person at the top of an organization will not make an organization successful. Instead, crowd source ideas and effort in service of achievement, growth, and joy at work.
Organizational and Cultural Transformation
What struck Rob about his consulting roles in the past, is that the failure point nearly every time in successful transformations are the people. Leaders expect companies or organizations to change, and companies don’t change, people do. And it starts with you. It’s time to lean in as a humble human being on your own development journey.
