  • How do we raise our motivation?
  • What is the proper team focus?

We believe that resources are or will be sufficient to reach the goals

38% of the team members feel that resources are or will be insufficient to reach the common goal. 25% is convinced that resources will be sufficient.  These survey results seem an explanation for the relatively high number of teammembers that lack intiative. It also explains why many feel an inbalance between expectations and reality. (Source: Ruysdael research on connected leadership)


AdaptivityNew situations might require another approach. Both as a person and a a group we need ‘to make a new path’ of thinking and doing. That an a healthy interaction between people facilitates the group flexibility and its ability to adapt to unforeseen situations and events.

The success strategy: Think big & act agile. When needed we facilitate a well balanced change of underlying systems, structures and mindsets. We can discuss this factor using the following success markers:

  • Energized
  • Resources
  • Healthy balance
  • Agility
  • Optimal control
