The SALC™ Tool: Part 1 of 5

Remember your teachers and professors placing you in groups for a projects? They would state an argument that they were formed to teach “teams skills needed for your career in the all fields.” There you were in a group with three to five different individuals, each holding an outline of the project and told the project would be graded based on the group, not on individuals.

There the dynamics would begin: there was always at least one group member who did nothing, one that wanted the A who would take charge, a mediator, and one or two who were not sure what to do and waited for tasks to be assigned to them. But this model is backwards. The future of businesses and organizations actually requires us to do more intentional development and design than this.
