R like travel

The third and last letter of the WIR formula stands for travel. Because it is not to be expected that we will ever find ourselves in the digital transformation Objective arrive, ever one Status reach, on which we can rest. But here, too, there are three tips that will make the “journey” a full one Success becomes:

  1. Dynamically lead: Executives who present their employees the dynamic self-image, ie, recognize and share their own fallibility and ignorance, create psychological safety in their teams. This also means that the employees do not have to be immediately perfect, which allows them to show themselves with their mistakes, their ignorance and their weaknesses.
  2. Provide psychological security: Aristotle's study, which Google conducted with 180-owned teams, shows that team success is not as important to team success. The team result stands and falls with the level of psychological security that the team members feel. The Professorin Amy Edmondson has already defined the term 1999 as the belief that you will not be punished or exposed when addressing ideas, questions, concerns or mistakes. If this belief does not exist, team members do not question the results of others and withhold their ideas for fear of rejecting the other team members.
  3. Improve safety with simple statements: But that's exactly what is fatal when it comes to creating a growth mindset. Even simple statements like "I may have missed something here, what do you think?" or if someone can be helped, the level of psychological security has a clearly positive effect. The higher it is, the higher the likelihood that there will be a desire for further development and that unusual and novel ideas will be expressed and discussed.
