Bringing a Team Together: A Consultant’s Learning Journey
By: Sonia Di Maulo, Founder and Lead Feedback Enthusiast
The Start of a Beautiful Relationship
On June 27, 2012 I kicked off a new summer of learning fun for 15 Master’s students enrolled in my class, Consulting in Educational Technology.
(For learnings from the 2011 team, visit this Blog Series: Student Voices – a Learning Journey: What my students learned about Performance Improvement Consulting)
It’s an intense 6-week class packed with:
Team Guiding Principles
During the first class we got to know each other and developed expectations and guiding principles so that we can all grow together and create an environment that boosts our learning (mine too!).
I led an activity from my Exposing Exceptional Performance workshop around developing Team Guiding Principles.
The result of their brainstorm is an incredible list of principles that will guide our behaviours and propel our performance.
Their guiding principles below, will foster the perfect environment to rediscover their natural ability to work in a meaningful and collaborative way; to listen and accept the desire and courage to emerge as leaders (individually and as a team).
(Shameless plug for my new book, The Apple in the Orchard, which explores this vision. For an excerpt of the book, sign-up for my special report and related articles to the right of this page.)
This emergence is essential to innovate, collaborate, grow, and sustain healthy workplaces of the future.

Amazing list, isn’t it?
