Chapter 2Take StockAssess Your Togetherness Level

Togetherness is a means to an end—strong results and retention of great people, I would argue. But you may have picked up this book for a number of other very valid reasons. At the beginning of workshops, I usually have all leaders write on a card what they hope their Togetherness outcome will be and the benefit they think it will have. I get all kinds of thought-provoking responses, but some of my favorites include these:

  • Balanced so I can do my job for a long time
  • Consistent so my team knows what to expect
  • Proactive so I feel like I'm moving the most important work forward
  • Focused so I can make progress toward goals
  • Intentional so I make thoughtful decisions
