This is the third of three episodes with Ari Weinzwieg, co-founding partner of the Zingerman’s community of businesses. Last week he talked about the 3Cs of organizational design. This week he’ll cover collaboration and support.
The four questions
1. Is fear holding you back from sharing more information with your team, suppliers, and customers? Could your organization benefit from being more open?
2. He talked about collaborative decision making. What are some small steps you could take to begin incorporating more collaboration into the leadership of your company? What people could bring different insight to the decisions you’re trying to make?
3. Along those lines of collaboration - he talked about how Paul and He rarely see eye to eye, but what they do share are values and vision. Is your team on the same page around values and vision?
4. Do you have a community of like minded leaders to support you in your journey? Remember, you are not alone in wanting to create a more engaged, collaborative, and open work place.
