This month I celebrated my three-year commitment to my total well-being, which includes incorporating a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise into each day. To assist me on my wellness journey, I joined the Fitbit community. Over the past three years, I have gained many Fitbit friends along the way, some I know personally and others through associations with my friends. Each week on Sunday, I issue challenges to my different Fitbit networks and through agreement we strive to meet our personal goals and if by chance, win the challenge. In all challenges, I know who will be the winner. The challenges were a routine in which we were all very comfortable.

I don't know if it was a Fitbit fluke or intentional, but one week the challenges changed so that we could invite up to 20 participants as opposed to 10. It had become clear to me that each of my Fitbit groups had become complacent and had settled into the routine, evident by the low engagement and achievement of personal daily goals. Several of the friends that started on the journey with me had moved to an inactive status. This fluke was an opportunity for me to try a different approach. I issued a challenge to everyone I was connected to, regardless of my selected network groups. The first 20 to join would represent that group. As I invited participants, they in turn invited members of their network. I ended with five challenges each mixed with new members. I immediately noticed a difference in the group dynamics. First and foremost, my natural challenge leaders ended up in a challenge where they were competing. At the end of the first day, my natural challenge leaders were in shock and I started receiving side text that read: "Who is this person?" "How did they end up in our challenge?" and "What do they do...". The realization had set in that they would not coast to an easy win, and that extra effort and attention was required. Read More.

The dynamics illustrated in this example are the same principles operating in organizations.

The Fitbit team challenge is an informal example of how we apply varying techniques in our team coaching. Team coaching is a core offering from DB Latimore Professional Services Group. We provide group coaching and team coaching ranging from development, to intervention and ultimately prevention (long term coaching at individual and team levels). Our focus over the past few weeks have consisted of engagements both short term (1 day focused on team dynamics), 2 day workshops with functional teams and my long-term team engagements, coaching intact teams.

How well is your team performing? I welcome the opportunity to engage with you to create a high performing team. Don't hesitate to contact me.
