Dom Price is a work futurist at Atlassian and emphasises the importance of teamwork and values in the workplace to ensure that systems operate through thriving distributed teams.
In this presentation Dom focuses on dysfunction. Dysfunction is the gap between what we know and what we apply.
Organisations need to think about their values and culture. Hire for values and recognise behaviour that aligns with those values. It is important to understand change and build a connected enterprise to create thriving teams. This requires a balance between command, control and flexibility, emphasising that most change can be influenced by the organisation.
The number one determinant of a healthy, productive, effective team is psychological safety and a sense of belonging. Building meaningful relationships within teams by identifying and investing in strong, functional relationships and addressing struggling or dysfunctional relationships is essential.
Drive sustainable evolution by making small changes every week.
- We want to build enterprises, organisations that have the same shared goals, the same shared outcomes, but work with freedom to achieve them.
- Understand change and realise that most of the change needed to drive growth is within the organisation. For example, how we understand change and the impact of the change that is going on around us.
- Command, control, flexibility and a shared inclusive language: The best organisations have all these elements.
- Drive one degree of change every week, which leads to sustainable evolution.
