The course looks at these 7 principles within the 3 critical areas of an effective team which are:
- Building great People,
- Achieving a united and clear Vision, and
- Increasing the completion of the right Tasks.
This course will help you understand and apply each of the following principles:
The first area we will explore is that of People, here we look at the principles of Acceptance and Attitude:
- Acceptance: The principle of creating an environment of ACCEPTANCE where those in your team feel welcome, safe and accepted. When team members feel safe and welcome they are more likely to connect, engage, grow and achieve.
- Attitude: The principle of encouraging the right ATTITUDE, where there is a greater emphasis on the strengths and successes than on weakness and failures. When we begin with the positive (without ignoring the negative) we create a more engaging, inspiring and ultimately more effective team culture.
The second area is that of Vision, here we look at the principles of Aspiration and Actuality.
- Aspiration: The principle of getting to a common ASPIRATION, where there is clarity about team and personal purpose in this moment and into the future. With a transparent and agreed purpose the energy of the team increases and becomes more focused.
- Actuality: The principle of being clear about ACTUALITY, where we face the reality of our current situation in terms of our roles and/or responsibilities. When we take responsibility and are clear about the situation we are actually in, then we are in the place to determine how to move forward.
The third area is that of Task and here we explore the principles of Agreements, Action and Accountability.
- Agreements: The principle of getting to clear AGREEMENTS. When we can drill down to the ‘Who’ will do ‘What’ by ‘When’ we move from cheap talk to positioning for effective action.
- Action:The principle of ACTION to complete my side of my agreements. Only as we personally do what we say we will do, when we say we will do it, can we build our integrity, reputation, and lay a foundation for holding others accountable for their commitments.
- Accountability:The principle of ACCOUNTABILITY, of holding people to their word regarding the clear agreements they have entered into. This rare and uncomfortable skill is the key that releases people into higher levels of positive self‐regard and results in greater positive personal and team effort. The focus here is not always a successful outcome, but the application of appropriate processes and effort which in the long run create the character, skill and fertile soil out of which growth will come.

This lecture introduces you to the course and outlines the background and experience of your trainer Peter Watson.
This lecture explains how the 7 Principles sit within three groups and how they relate to each other. The rest of the course is arranged around these three areas of People, Vision and Task.
In the extra resources you will find a number of articles to further explain how the principles fit together and an additional Team Assessment available from Mind Tools, and excellent resource website.
Throughout the course I will direct you to good resources I have found from various sources.
