Show #300: How a ‘Squad Mentality’ Leads to Engaged Performance

Special Guest: Éamon O’Brien, The Squad Mentality Programme

Think about teams you have been a part of – at home, at play and work.

Some of them will have been great and some of them will have been lousy and several may be somewhere in between.

Do you look back fondly at some teams, some of the times, some colleagues and leaders – and do you still get shivers when you think of those other times.

For 35 years we have been working in and around teams – their creation, their culture, their leadership, their performance. We have been mapping the field of what are the things that come together to make teams special places. Our name for this is – SQUAD MENTALITY

You have a SQUAD MENTALITY when people are united behind the philosophy, strategy and community of the business. The outputs are that the squad are engaged, perform and deliver.

The following are the core components of a SQUAD MENTALITY

  • There is individual and collective clarity about the team purpose
  • Individuals understand, utilise and develop the strengths of the team
  • Growth and Wanting-to-Win Mindsets are contagious
  • There is a set of ground-rules and clear expectations of one another

Join us as we discuss what a ‘Squad Mentality’ is and how it Leads to Engaged Performance.
