NEXT-LEVEL TEAMWORK

The 5 Tensions to Manage for High-Performance Teams

Are you tired of dreading Monday morning? Does working in a dysfunctional team drain your energy and leave you feeling defeated? 

If so, this playbook is your ultimate guide to breaking free from this cycle and unlocking your team’s full potential. 

Let’s face it, most teams don’t work. Dysfunction, drama, and division run rampant, making your workweek feel like a never-ending battle.

But there’s hope! 

While other teams run away from tension, you’re going to learn to embrace it. You will learn to harness the power of healthy tension in these five key areas, equipping you to shift your team from unproductive to unstoppable:

  1. Build trust by focusing on tasks AND relationships.
  2. Increase engagement by leveraging structure AND flexibility.
  3. Have courageous conversations through truthful AND tactful communication.
  4. Align your team to win by promoting collaboration AND independence.
  5. Unleash ownership by increasing empowerment AND accountability.

This book does not provide you with miracle cures or magical formulas. What it does offer is something even more valuable: an actionable plan. By implementing the “plays” outlined in this book, you will set your team on the path to success. 

Life is simply too short to settle for working in a dysfunctional team!

LEAD WITH AND

The Secret to Resilience and Results in a Polarized World

As a leader, you’re committed to making a difference, leaving a mark, and making the world a better place. But when it comes to moving things forward, does it often seem like you’re fighting an uphill battle against broken systems, impossible demands, and unreasonable people?

Every leader deserves a way to successfully stay in the game and enjoy the adventure! Your work is important, and right now, the world needs your leadership more than ever.

This secret is to move beyond the traditional Either/Or approach to solving problems and embrace the transformational power of Both/And thinking. When you can successfully leverage the following six leadership tensions, you will break through to a new level of resilience and results: 

  • Become optimistic AND realistic.
  • Embrace change AND preserve stability.
  • Become profit focused AND purpose driven.
  • Have expectations AND extend grace.
  • Care for others AND care for yourself.
  • Become confident AND remain humble.

Learn how to rise above polarity, division, and conflicting values. Join effective leaders from around the world who have the courage to lead with AND.

“Why settle for one value when you can have two?
For us, leadership success is all about Both/And thinking!”

“Tim Arnold has done what few authors of leadership books have been able to do. He has offered valuable tools within an easily accessible model, and in as few words necessary.

This book has more practicality than many of the leadership books I own combined. Purchasing, The Power of Healthy Tension, was a small price to pay for the dividends it will return in the leadership of groups and organizations. I highly recommend it.”
