Image This – Rope on Ship

Your team at work is not functioning well.  As the team leader, you are ready to declare a breakdown.  But how?  Try asking everyone to look at this image of a block and tackle on a ship.  Some team members will know what this is.  Others will have no idea.  It really doesn’t matter.  What matters is the question you ask that initiates the critical conversation around why your team is stuck or is missing the mark.  What if you asked, ” What do you see in this image that relates to our team?” or “What emotion does this image evoke in you about our work together?”  Introduce the question, allow each member to share and you will find that concerns naturally come to the surface and you are off on the missing conversation needed to get you back on track!
