The Business Pit Stop 18: Consensus Vs Collaboration
The Business Pit Stop Description
Professional small business consultants and father and son duo Jeff and Clayton give strategies for success in running a small business, family business, or start up. After years as implementers of the Entrepreneurial Operating System® (EOS®), a system that has helped 4000 businesses break through the ceiling, Jeff and Clayton are expanding their small business, and want to share their unique perspective in bringing the Entrepreneurial Operating System to a small business.
Too often we see leadership teams from businesses of all shapes and sizes fall into what we call the “doom loop”. That’s when the team gets stuck talking ABOUT an issue instead of actually solving it.
We all know what the result of this is: useless meetings in which people drone on about their opinion, argue, and eventually tune out and end up checking email. You all sit in a room and waste an hour of your lives.
But what’s the cause?
Usually the cause is that the team is looking for consensus instead of collaboration. That means everyone wants everyone else to agree with their opinion. That’s a conversation, not a leadership team meeting.
In this episode we discuss the tools and strategies for getting out of the doom loop, starting with recognizing the difference between consensus and collaboration.
