Pelican Logic – how to boost the emotional intelligence of your team. Team synergy has been correctly identified by Covey and others as being critically important in achieving business and personal goals. Human beings seem to have an innate ability to complicate things, whereas, the solution to complex situations are often simple. Looking to nature helps us identify principles that, when implemented, can work miracles. It has been stated the only 30% of attempts at cultural change are effective. Maybe if we considered some ancient advice from a historical character called Job, it would help us to overcome our natural tendency towards complexity.
Ask the birds of the sky, and they will tell you.
Speak to the earth, and it will instruct you.
Let the fish in the sea speak to you.” Job 12:7-8
So here is a challenge for leaders, CEO’s and managers who are too busy not to stop and reflect. Find a quiet place in nature somewhere. Spend some time meditating – switch off the so-called smart-phone. Listen, watch, learn. If things are tough in your world, then maybe you can make a difference by bringing creative inspiration to your team culture.
