Improve Dynamics to Get Results
Members of successful teams, boards, and working groups trust one another on a fundamental level. They are comfortable being vulnerable with each other not only about their strengths, but also their weaknesses, mistakes, shortcomings, and behaviors. They get to a point where they can be completely candid with one another.
This is essential because members of teams and working groups who trust one another are not afraid to engage in conflict around ideas, which is the key to individual and group success. They do not hesitate to disagree with, challenge, and question each other, all in service of finding the best solutions to challenges.

I seriously almost cried happy tears. Another leader on the team had an epiphany where she realized that she needs to just be herself. And I renegotiated a commitment with one of my direct reports."
